Music Activities for "Mama", "Mama" and "Papa", "Papa"
Cardany, Audrey Berger
General Music Today, v25 n1 p37-40 Oct 2011
Jean Marzollo creates two beautiful texts using a child's first words, "Mama, Mama" and "Papa, Papa" as a recurring theme. Wildlife artist, Laura Regan, illustrates Marzollo's poetry with loving images of parents and children in the animal kingdom. Poetry and illustrations highlight the tenderness and care of Mama and Papa as they bond with their babies. "General Music Today" columnist, Cardany, provides a soothing melody for Marzollo's texts and suggests related music activities to enhance young children's musical development in a classroom music setting and in the home environment. (Contains 7 figures.)
