A Treasury of Children's Songs: Forty Favorites to Sing and Play
An updated version of a classic songbook, with art from the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art
In this popular songbook, forty classic childhood songs are imaginatively illustrated with treasures from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here are songs that young children can act out, such as "London Bridge," "Pop Goes the Weasel," and "The Mulberry Bush." There are also work songs, such as "I've Been Working on the Railroad"; ballads, like "Shenandoah"; and nursery songs, including "Oats, Peas, and Beans." The selections are drawn from popular traditions around the world; some have been enjoyed and sung for hundreds of years. Throughout the book are insightful comments on the art and the songs. All of the selections include simple arrangements for musical accompaniment.
A Treasury of Children's Songs is an updated version of Go In and Out the Window, first published in 1987 and reprinted twelve times.
