Item description for The Singing Year with CD (Audio) (Festivals (Hawthorn Press)) by Candy Verney...
Singing with babies and young children is one of the joys of being a parent. It is a lifetime gift from you that children love. This handbook will bring increased awareness of children's natural surroundings. Singing about the seasons creates a connection and helps children become aware of natural rhythms and cycles.
The Singing Year, which includes a learning CD and illustrations, is arranged by season and contains more than 100 songs. Some are traditional, and many are composed by Candy, with poems by Nicola Wickstead and Julie Tonkin. Included are songs about animals, plants, and seasonal phenomena that appeal especially to children. Each section ends with suggestions for seasonal crafts and games.
To emphasize the connection with the natural world, the book also includes lists of plants that can be grown easily in any nursery garden.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Singing Year with CD (Audio) (Festivals (Hawthorn Press))?
We are enjoying this Jan 4, 2008
We have been using this for a month and it is a hit with my 8yo and 13yo boys. We like it, but not as much as The Singing Day. Perhaps we will like it just as well in a year or two when our toddler is more aware of seasonal changes. Right now, the songs are not as applicable as the songs from The Singing Day, so I am not learning them as easily. I am pleased that holidays from a small variety of religions are included.
