A Musical Treat That's Fun to Beat
The Poetry of Dennis Lee set in the Orff style
By Judy Sills.  
35 pages  

This book is a collection of 24 selected poems by Dennis Lee from his books Alligator Pie, Garbage Delight, Jelly Belly and The Ice Cream Store. They have been orchestrated in the Orff style as speech pieces, songs, hand games or full orchestrations. Some pieces include choreographed folk-style dances. The subject matter is current using topics of interest to children. The rhymes are clever and catchy and the images he portrays are humorous and easily learned by children.

Why did you choose this?
West Music Store
I bought a copy of this a few years back and loved it. As a music teacher I lend out books to fellow teachers all the time, I guess I need a better system of tracking who has them! This is one worth re-ordering!!
