An Early Start At Home - Eileen Diamond
An activity songbook for babies, toddlers and infants aged 0 to 5 years, containing a fun collection of 22 wonderful songs with lyrics and movement suggestions for parents to use at home. There's no need to be musical to enjoy this book because a CD is included which provides a demonstration of each song and a backing track to sing along to.
The very young make music naturally. Recent studies have proven that exposure to music can have a dramatic effect on children's social awareness and future academic performance. The catchy songs and approachable style of An Early Start In Music makes this a colourful and effective introduction to music for everyone involved.
The songs explore topics that are appropriate for this age group, such as the body, animals, the seasons and the daily routine. The songs and actions have been carefully designed to stimulate language development, creativity, co-ordination, memory, rhythmic responses and concentration. The material for 3 to 5 year olds covered in this book would help realise many of the early learning goals of the Foundation Stage. For each song there are suggestions for movement and follow-up activities. Photographs illustrate the activities at a glance.
