Songs Games & Rhyms - shildren's songs About This Book
To parents, kindergarteners, and primary teachers, these songs and games are presented with the hope that they will in some measure satisfy the demand for a wholesome, elevating kind of music, and for words suited to the thoughts and feelings of very young children. The cultivation of the music sense should begin in earliest childhood, but like all begin­nings the task is both difficult and delicate. If 'it be neglected during the first few years, it is scarcely possible to re-arouse it. To meet this need in earliest infancy is the justification for the hand and finger games contained in this book. The infant's cry for suitable physical en­vironment adapted to his delicate organization, is no more imperative than his restless, ner­vous appeal for simple, intellectual and emotional means of self-activity. It is at this period that the bent of the musical nature is determined, a nature in which all the phases of being are in active efficient harmony, attuned to sympathetic responsiveness. The cultivation of the feelings at an early age, is therefore of the greatest importance, and no one agent is so eifective as appropriate music and suitable words.
