This delightful family songbook also offers suggestions for seasonal games and craft activities.

Candy Verney leads community choirs and runs voice workshops with families and teachers. She draws her inspiration from teaching methods used in Steiner/Waldorf education and wrote The Singing Day.

“… an invaluable source of material to help you develop your relationships with your child and your shared understanding of the wider world through singing.”
— Annie Davy, Head of Early Years and Childcare, Oxfordshire County Council

“… this delightful family treasury features songs about birds, animals, plants and other seasonal highlights collected from many traditions and cultures.”
— Kindling

“The book is attractively presented and would sit well on any nursery shelf without collecting dust! The bibliography is well laid out and easy to find one’s way around as are all the reference sections. The festivals section would be particularly useful to childminders who are keen to recognise faiths other than their own. There are not too many illustrations, a handful of line drawings, but those included are relevant and work well.”
— National Child Minding Association
