Silberg, Jackie; Schiller, Pam
Aside from being fun to do, singing songs, saying poems and rhymes, and doing finger plays with children helps them develop early literacy skills. The 700 selections in this compilation of songs and rhymes will help children ages 3 to 6 build a strong foundation in skills and concepts such as listening; colors, shapes, and counting; vocabulary; coordination; imagination; and humor. The selections are in alphabetical order, and are also indexed by first line, theme connection, and category, such as finger plays, nursery rhymes, etc. (HTH)
