I liked the way this book broke down the age groups from 1-2 year olds, three to four and four to five. I also liked their layout and suggestions for how to make music & movement areas in a preschool or kinder class. However, I could use some more specific music and movement games/activities to use in class, and where they fit in the modalities of basic music and movement. Overall a helpful book

I like the suggestions for child-initiated songs (page 11), child-initiated rhythms (page 12), taking advantage of teachable moments (page 13), allowing children to choose songs (page 15), and taking cues from the children (page 20).

But with only a little musical training, a preschool teacher can do more for the children than is suggested in the activity plans. When I was a small child, I wondered what those symbols in the songbook meant, and I was frustrated because no one would tell me.

I don't want any preschoolers in my care to suffer a similar frustration. Consequently, my students have played simple songs on the xylophone and practiced reading simple rhythms.

And if they felt any undue pressure, they certainly didn't show it. Rather, they have thrown their hands up in the air and said "Me! Me! Me!" just as they have for any other age-appropriate activity. If you are imagining an adult dragging a child out of bed in the middle of the night, forcing him to practice the piano, and boxing his ears whenever he made a mistake, you are thinking of Beethoven's father, not me.
