The importance and value of music in the care and education of very young children is increasingly recognised. This book looks closely at early musical development and how this translates into ways of supporting the musical activity of babies, toddlers and young children, keeping in mind the diversity of preschool work.

Key topics include:

  • pre- and post-natal musical experience
  • musical parenting
  • lullabies and play songs
  • baby music sessions
  • toddlers' music play
  • songs, musical games and other activities
  • young children's singing 
  • music play with instruments
  • listening
  • working with adults to develop musical opportunities.

This text provides a valuable synthesis of recent thinking in this area, as well as practical suggestions for fostering creativity through musical activities. An original and inspiring book which will be welcomed by anyone responsible for the care and education of preschool children.

About the author (2003)

Susan Young has an extensive background in dealing with people and has a natural ability to connect with her audience and clientele. It did not take long before she realized that men loved to share their dating stories with her. She has a natural ability to listen and motivate people to see things they may not recognize in their relationships. Men wanted her to provide them with the answers to their questions about women. Having coached hundreds of men, she decided to reveal the secrets about dating that many men wished they knew. Susan has developed a system for men with step-by-step instructions to ensure dating success that will challenge the way a man thinks. Men will hear things they have never heard before: the secrets to what women are thinking. Susan's goal is to enlighten men, and her work in From Frog to Prince represents the culmination of this goal. It is her hope that men will use this as a tool toward better lives and more meaningful relationships.
