About this Book What sets this new book of children's singing games apart? The sheer length of this worthy enterprise is just one of its many charms. Included here are many of the familiar games we often wish we had gathered together between two covers, but also a wealth of lesser-known, but equally worthy games. Both new and experienced teachers will be grateful to have so much material to choose from. This is an eminently practical book-the directions are clear, the drawings delightful and the keys singable. -Doug Goodkin Orff Schulwerk Teacher Anna Rainville animates an abundant collection of songs, some comfortingly familiar, others delightfully surprising, with timeless forms of dance. In her magical choreography, the circle, line, spiral, and square invite creative individual movement into joyful community expression of the dignity of work, the beauty of nature, the mystery of spirit, and the utter joy of moving together in rhythm and song. Practical and inspiring, this book is an indispensable resource for teachers who want to establish a strong sense of community, even family, in their classrooms. -Stephen Levy School Designer for Expeditionary Learning Schools This book is an essential resource for those seeking a way to connect children of the 21st century with their rich musical heritage. Let the singing games begin! -Crystal Olson, EdD Assistant Professor for Arts in Education, California State University, Sacramento About the Author Anna Rainville has been teaching in public and Waldorf schools for nearly thirty years and has been singing and dancing for more than that. Particularly dedicated to early childhood education, she brings great joy and inspiration to workshops for adults in this field.
