This is a book of 13 fingerplays. Songs and poems with actions, called fingerplays, are one of the best ways to teach young children. Using music and movement to express ideas is fun and in the process the children are learning to rhyme and, with repetition, begin to read. These are original text, using old, well-known tunes. There are also activities to teach colors, numbers and counting. Included also are several sight words from Baby Sign Language and American Sign Language.
