Nature Ways in Story and Verse: If I Can See the World Around Me
13 circle games introducing young children to movement to music. Includes movement directions and suggestions for props.
Dorothy Harrer describes her book, recommended for children 5 and above, as follows:
“… stories and verses written for children so they can learn about the ways of nature with joy when the elements, the seasons, and the plants and animals are clothed in an imagery that is true to nature and yet shows them in human terms. The human terms, often well-known from a child’s own experiences, enlighten a young one’s search for a way to relate self to nature.”
