Children’s Songs From An Italian Country Town

Mussomeli is a small town in Sicily, and Rosella Diliberto’s home. This delightful collection of Rosella’s favorite children’s songs and game songs introduces your students to the culture and traditions of Italy in a fun, hands-on way.

With clear affection for her home and its music, Rosella introduces you to “La Bella Lavanderina” (and its dance-like movements), the hilarity of keeping track of the verses in “La Macchina del Capo,” “Ventiquattro Gatti Blu” (a game song about cats lined up in a row, suitable for the youngest children), and four other lively songs.

The set includes “The Armchair Adventurer”- special highlighted sections that offer links to relevant web sites in Italy and Sicily, as well as web sites and activities for building a friendship with the town of Mussomeli, which has its own web site, and for follow-up to history, art, musical instruments, customs etc.

Suggested activities through the “Friends and Flags” international friendship project culminate in a friendship box to send to sister classes in Italy and/or other countries.

Whether you are Italian by birth, are working with children of Italian heritage or on a unit about Italy and Sicily, are trying to learn the language, or just love all things Italian, this heartfelt introduction to the children’s songs of Mussomeli will enchant you.
