The Book of Songs & Rhymes With Beat Motions
Keeping the BeatBook - 2004
Ages 3 to 9 years. All of the songs and rhymes in this book, passed down from generation to generation, are full of wonder, magic, and make-believe and encourage children -- and parents -- to move with the beat. This collection includes beat games in which the song or rhyme follows the child's preferred beat tempo, games in which everyone stays in one place and the beat is felt in hand movements, and activities where the beat is put in the feet as everyone travels around the room. Among the popular songs included are "We're Going on a Bear Hunt," "Rig-a-Jig Jig," "Did You Ever See a Lassie," and "Cobbler, Cobbler."
