4.0 out of 5 stars A good book for teachers Nov. 25 2010
By Ssennim
This is an excellent book for teachers who teach young children.
There are a numerous variety of songs and the book itself is quite useful.
The music is also easy to play with piano with makes it more fun for the
teachers and children to sing along.
Next time I would like to find a music book like this,
only with Christmas Songs.
The one thing that I didn't like was that I purchased two books within the time span of 30minutes,
but two separate packages came through our mail, which made me pay the delivery fee once again
for the second book.
Besides this, the book is a great tool for teachers like me.

Not what I was expecting. Wanted nursery rhymes, but not for guitar, voice and piano. Sending it back as soon as possible.

3.0 out of 5 stars an okay book May 15 2010
By L. Giaime - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this about 8 months ago so that my husband and I could sing to our baby. We find it to be a little off target for us. There are some songs that are good -- many verses to Mary Had a Little Lamb or Camp Town Ladies. But then there are songs that only include 1 verse (Skip to my Lou or There's A Hole in the Bucket or the mockingbird song) or there is a tune put to mother goose nursery rhymes that we learned as poems not songs (Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat or Humpty Dumpty). There are songs that have lyrics that differ from the US traditional lyrics (A Ring-A-Ring O'Roses instead of Ring Around the Rosey). There are songs that have different tunes than the ones we learned as kids (My Hat It Has 3 Corners). There are a couple of real American traditional songs (Dry Bones, Yankee Doodle) but it is missing all of the old West songs like Goodbye Old Paint or Git Along Little Doggies (one of the yipee ki-yo songs). It's not a bad book and we use it almost daily. The paper and binding are good quality and are holding up even when the baby gets her paws on it. However, every song is listed as traditional and with only one or two exceptions the copyrights are all listed as Dorsey Brothers Limited, 2004. A cynical person might come to the conclusion that songs are missing verses or have slightly changed tunes or lyrics because the publisher didn't want to deal with rights and fees.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun with old favorites March 21 2007
By Learning Abilities Books - Published on Amazon.com
One hundred and sixty-nine songs offer lots of enjoyment. I loved finding old campfire songs and folk tunes as well as game and activity rhymes. It is a big book that is a bit hard to make lie flat but after being bent back enough times that problem is solved.

Some of my old favorites are Dry Bones, Pop Goes The Weasel, The Farmer in the Dell, and The Wheels On The Bus.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a great book for kids! Sept. 12 2005
By Mark Twain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My kids just love it, especially after our babysitter taught them the songs. The 5-year old one likes this book very much and always sings some songs from the book. The 2-year old one likes to hum along. I am sure in the future after they starts his music lessons and knows more about the notes. They will love it more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great selection; simple music April 16 2008
By Simbolina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a terrific book with all the classic nursery rhymes and songs, with very simple music to follow along on the piano or just to sing. Most other books I've seen have a much smaller selection of tunes and the music is more complicated. It makes a great gift as well - I found that a lot of new parents are looking for something other than 'Twinkle Twinkle' and 'The Wheels on the Bus...' to sing to and with their children :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Collection of Songs Oct. 15 2006
By A Reader - Published on Amazon.com
This is a nice collection of classic children's songs and nursery rhymes. Some of the arrangements could be a little more interesting, and I find the book hard to keep open when I play the piano for my son.
