“This book reminds us of the beauty and power of living song and movement. It will nourish children and adults alike as they share the music together.”
Joan Almon, Alliance for Childhood

“What a delightful collection! The wide range of games is described so clearly that it’s easy to find something to play with a lucky child or group of children. And then you’ll want to play something else, just because it’s still so much fun to play and sing.”

Rahima Baldwin Dancy, early childhood educator and author, You Are Your Child’s First Teacher
