G-5280 The Book of Children’s Songtales by John M. Feierabend
Series: First Steps in Music
Favorite American folk songs, filled with magic, wonder, and make-believe, come to life for today’s children with The Book of Children’s SongTales. Encouraging a child’s imagination to grow, storytelling combines with music to create some of the best-loved songs of childhood.
Easy to learn and fun to sing, SongTales are a wonderful way to engage children, while at the same time plant the seeds of musical sensitivity and imagination. This special book, for the first time, collects the most cherished of these songs (some in danger of being lost or forgotten), enabling your family to carry on the tradition of laughter and learning that SongTales have inspired for generations!
John M. Feierabend, PhD, has spent decades compiling songs and rhymes from the memories of the American people in the hopes that these treasures will be preserved for future generations. He is Professor and Chair of the Music Education Department at The Hartt School of the University of Hartford.
