3. This book has 80 songs of all sorts of topics. This book is really interesting because it has the music notes on the pages along with the printed words. This book would be great for kids who can play instruments and wanted to sing along with the songs.
4. I thought that this book was pretty cool because it had the music written with the words. The pictures were very cute as well.
5. Rhyming, singing, transitions.

3. It is a book with eighty songs that includes a cd. Some of the songs are interactive, have the children play some of the roles. There is a new song on every page.
4. I like that there is a variety of songs to choose from. There are a lot of songs related to an animal, it could be good for children to learn about different animals. I like that it has birthday songs so that you can use them when it's a students birthday.
5.Transitions, rhyming, start the day off with

Delightful CD, lovely music book. Many fun - and sometimes haunting - songs from around the world. The piano arrangements are melodic & interesting, yet I can fairly easily sight read most of the songs. Very highly recommended.

An unusual selection of songs--I actually know very few of them, and the ones I know are not the norm (e.g. "Brother come and dance with me" from the operetta Hansel

All the songs sound the same and that's not what I was looking for. I was hoping the music would have some variety to it but that was not the case with this.
