This was suggested to me by my sister, a veteran music educator for 25+ years. I love using these songs. The kids love them. It's a great series.

I selected this book because I already have "Chimes of Dunkirk" and "Listen to the Mockingbird" which are also made by this group. Both of those books are great. Plus, all three books are recommended for use by Randy DeLelles and Jeff Kriske in the curriculum series. I trust their recommendations.

I am a music teacher and learned some activities during a workshop, so I wanted to have my own copy.

Have loved the Amidon's recordings for years. They are quality recordings, good instructions, fun activities for classes of a variety of ages.
