Children instinctively love to sing and follow along with songs. Authors Paul and Jennifer Swender have collected 50 fun and easy songs in this delightful new book, a virtual songbag of children's favorites. Many will be familiar, some will be brand new to little ears, but all are well-loved. The songs are accompanied by sheet music, fun facts, games, activities, and additional lyrics.

The book is compact and easy to carry, and lies flat to keep the book open while at the piano, around the campfire, or playing guitar. Children's Songbag offers endless hours of music, entertainment, and plain old fun, with songs like ""The Bear Went Over the Mountain,"" ""Do Your Ears Hang Low,"" and ""America the Beautiful,"" and many more. You don't need to read music or play an instrument to enjoy this activity book. Just pick it up and introduce the joy of singing and music-making to children everywhere!

Paul DuBois Jacobs and Jennifer Swender are a husband-and-wife team living in Brooklyn, New York. Paul has coauthored three books with musician Pete Seeger. Jennifer is an early childhood education and curriculum developer. They are also the authors of the highly acclaimed My Subway Ride.
