One hundred New Kindergarten Songs with lyrics & sheet music About This Book
It is hoped that these One Hundred New Kindergarten Songs will prove a valuable aid to the Kindergarten and Primary teacher, as well as to the mother, in teaching the essential truths of Nature. The music is all entirely new and original, and was composed expressly for this work by Henrietta A. Halsey, with special reference to the rhythmic ex­pression of the thought suggested by the words. Great care has been taken that the harmony should be simple and correct, as well as melodious, and for aid in this part of the work the composer is greatly indebted to G. Waring Stebbins, who has rendered valuable assistance in its revision. With the exception of a few selections, the words of the songs and games are all new and simple, and will be readily comprehended by the child mind. The author, Rena I. Halsey, has earnestly striven to embody in each verse of every song some truth or thought of Nature, so that these song-pictures are also song-stories—each song a complete story in itself—and not a meaningless repe­tition of words- or rhyme. The songs not written by the author were selected by her with due regard to the universal truths presented by the Kindergartner. The majority of the songs and games have been readily learned and sung by the pupils of a Kindergarten and Primary School, whose keen appreciation and enthusiastic love for the words and music have emboldened the author and composer to present them to the public.
