Songs of the child world About This Book
Our experience and observation lead us to believe that songs dealing with the various phases of nature are not only most attractive to the child but also most stimulating to its imag­ination and we have therefore endeavored to make the nature side of the present work very broad in its scope. The fact remains, however, that a large proportion of Kindergarten pupils are city children to whom a wide acquaintance with nature is impossible; and as the child's education must unfold thru its environment, we have endeavored to supply songs which deal with the interrelation­ships of civilized society both in the home and the outside world. It must, however, be con sidered that there are many experiences in the life of a great city which are so involved or so forced away from the conditions of nature as to make their simple expression in any art form almost impossible. We have given much attention to motion songs, realizing that action, properly directed in play, is the basis of education. We have earnestly endeavored to make Jiese songs true not only to the lines and color of each picture presented, but also to its underlying and characteristic rhythm, hoping thus to lead the child to a comprehension of the unity of nature.
