This treasure trove of an anthology is full to the brim with songs and seasonal verses that will delight children and encourage them to sing and play. Illustrated throughout with colour images, the Autumn Songbook features five thematic sections: “Animals and Birds,” “Farming-Harvest,” “Festivals & Related Themes,” “Weather,” and “Spooks, Riddles and Odd Things.”
Providing ample material for teachers and parents, the book includes selections of rhyming words, commentary on the significance of repetition, rhythm and beat, suggestions for incorporating movement and gesture, and practical teaching and parenting tips.
For years, teachers, parents, and students have requested that Sally Schweizer publish her collections of songs and verses—and here they are, presented in four wonderful anthologies to inspire the imagination and to celebrate the seasonal cycle.
Sally Schweizer grew up in a musical and literary family. Inspired by her uncle, the composer Benjamin Britten, she has loved music and language from an early age and has combined them with teaching throughout her life, filling her kindergarten with songs, poetry, and stories. Apart from being a singer and multi-instrumentalist, she is also an educational consultant, linguist, keen gardener, craftsperson, mother, and grandmother. She is the author of three books with Rudolf Steiner Press. Sally is currently developing her own Youtube channel.
