Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carly Reagan
For the caregiver working with toddlers and young children in a group care setting, the use of rhythm, motion, and song can be a most useful tool in building relationships, motor skills, and maintaining a stimulating and inviting atmosphere. Though repetition of songs is important for the young child's brain development and ability to make connections, caregivers and children often find themselves tired of singing and dancing to the same few tunes over and over again. Here they will find a wealth of fun and interactive songs, beats, and group movement activities to liven up their repertoire. The text of each song is accompanied by sheet music for tune recognition, additional verses written out for extension of the song, as well as specific directions for the interactive movements. These types of activities are great for a rainy day, and for practicing skills such as following directions and interacting with a group. An index can be found in the back for quick page reference, an important tool for a busy teacher or music group leader. Part of the "First Steps in Music" series, this collection is a wonderfully useful resource for the toddler/preschool classroom. Reviewer: Carly Reagan
