THE MUSIC IN ME AND YOU: A Busy Bodies, Busy Brains Book & CD

Item No: 7824


by Mari Shay. 

This playful introduction to music for ages PreK-K enhances literacy, listening skills, and social interaction. 

Four themed units—Getting to Know You, My Body, The Music in Me, Tea Time at My House—include singing traditional children’s songs, playing rhythm instruments and body percussion, movement, a suggestion for a music-based storybook (see Related Products).  CD includes sing-along audio tracks and printable resources on lessons, goals and national standards.  

Mari opens with an essay on why we need to teach music in preschool and kindergarten, identifies the elements of music and clarifies the intent of and how to use the book. Easy to use, even for a non-music teacher. 

Paperback & Enhanced CD
