This collection is a songbook for the classroom to be sure, but it is so much more than that! It was created by a master-teacher and licensed music therapist and especially designed for use in a primary classroom which includes children with special needs, although any class would certainly benefit from the concepts presented through the songs. Included is a brief introduction outlining the basic concepts and strategies for successful interaction to promote therapeutic learning in children with special needs. The 28 songs in this collection celebrate children-their individual uniqueness and growth, their daily adventures, and their membership within a larger community. Also included is a helpful performance/accompaniment CD as well as suggestions for movement and/or rhythm instrument play.
