The Book of Fingerplays & Action Songs: Revised Edition (First Steps in Music series) By John Feierabend Cover Image


From “The Wheels on the Bus” to “Eensy Weensy Spider,” these classic songs combine movement and music to create a high-energy, fun experience for children. At the same time, children learn coordination skills and the musical concepts of form and expression.

Easy to learn and fun to sing, fingerplays and action songs are a wonderful way to engage children, while at the same time plant seeds of musical sensitivity and imagination. This special book, for the first time, collects the most cherished of these songs (some in danger of being lost or forgotten), enabling your family to carry on the tradition of laughter and learning that fingerplays and action songs have inspired for generations!
