Games Children Sing and Play
“Children learn with their bodies before they learn with their brains. Physical and sensory feedback derived from interaction with the physical world help to build the neural pathways necessary to form mental images of the world.” –Sally Goddard Blythe, author of ‘he Genius of Natural Childhood and What Babies and Children Really Need.
“This book reminds us of the beauty and power of living song and movement. It will nourish children and adults alike as they share the music together.” –Joan Almon, founder, Alliance for Childhood
Games Children Sing and Play is a treasury of thirty-four favorite, time-tested games for playing with three to five year olds. The magical weaving of rhythms, movement, songs, stories and imagination invite children into vibrant story worlds. Most of all, these games help children feel at home in their bodies and in building relationships with others. Includes CD of tunes.
“A lot has been ‘said’ about protecting childhood but this beautifully written and produced book will show you ‘how’. The authors have poured a lifetime of what works for young children into these pages for us” – Kim John Payne M.ED. author of Simplicity Parenting.
“A child’s game is a bridge built from the joy of joining. Play is one of the human beings greatest needs, and is simultaneously the trait that can help us learn to be social beings as well.” – Jaimen McMillan, Founder and Director, Spacial Dynamics Institute,
What They’re Saying
What a delightful collection! The wide range of games is described so clearly that it’s easy to find something to play with a lucky child or group of children. And then you’ll want to play something else, just because it’s still so much fun to play and sing.’
Rahima Baldwin Dancy, author, You Are Your Child's First Teacher
