This treasure trove anthology is filled with songs and seasonal verses to delight children and encourage them to sing and play. Illustrated throughout with color images, Summer Songbook features four thematic sections—“Animals and Birds”; “Nature”; “Dancing, Rounds, and Games”; and “Silly Verses.”
Providing ample material for teachers and parents, the book also includes selections of rhyming words; commentary on the significance of repetition, rhythm, and beat; suggestions for incorporating movement and gesture; and practical teaching and parenting tips.
For years, teachers, parents, and students have asked Sally Schweizer to publish her collections of songs and verses. Summer Songbook is the second of four wonderful anthologies that inspire the imagination and celebrate the seasonal cycle.
