Don’t miss this delightful and practical collection of songs celebrating traditional holidays and familiar days, including Halloween, St. Patrick√≠s Day, and Earth Day, along with some less traditional events like International Talk Like a Pirate Day and The Snowiest Day of the Year. Written in a variety of styles, the songs include both original works and arrangements of folk tunes from several countries. There is also a theme song that can be used any time or throughout the year, as well as a mixed-media P/A CD with reproducible vocal parts and a fabulous chronological listing of international and national holidays and observances for all 365 days of the year! You’ll find everything from birthdays of U. S. Presidents, famous composers and children’s authors, to fun, frivolous observances like Happy Mew Years Day for Cats and National Chocolate Cupcake Day. Tons of information to share with your students, post on bulletin boards, or use as a cross-curricular tool!
