For generations, the songs and rhymes of American folk culture have delighted children, creating a "hushed wonder" at playtime. No fireworks, no crazy musical arrangements, just adult and child connecting with rhymes and music. These treasures once were passed from parent or grandparent to child, yet in recent years, with changes in technology and family structure, they have been in danger of being lost and forgotten. This series of books by John M. Feierabend brings back this music and poetry of America! The Book of Wiggles and Tickles, The Book of Bounces, The Book of Lullabies, The Book of Simple Songs and Circles, and The Book of Tapping and Clapping are filled with the type of educational play parents and teachers crave! Rhymes, songs, and games bring our heritage to the youngest generation by connecting them to a rich repertoire of folk music while building their musical sensibilities, which can help in their appreciation and understanding of music later in life! Each collectible book is also delightfully illustrated to enhance the activities. Feierabend, an early childhood music specialist and professor at The Hartt School of Music, has spent decades compiling songs and rhymes that our parents and grandparents sang to us when we were children. In the same vein as classics like "This Little Piggy" and "Where Is Thumbkin?" the high-quality children's literature in these books has withstood the test of time, inspiring wonder, joy, and laughter in infants and toddlers for well over one hundred years!
