Amazon Review
PreS-Gr 3--This serviceable collection includes 35 songs, with musical arrangements and chords for a variety of instruments. Among the selections offered are typical nursery songs such as "Twinkle, twinkle, little star" and "The grand old Duke of York"; songs for older children such as "She'll be coming round the mountain" and "Yankee Doodle"; a few unusual choices such as "Cockles and mussels" and "Lewis Wedding Song"; and several holiday songs. The musical arrangements are simple, if uninspired, making them accessible for inexperienced musicians. Small figures decorate the pages, many of them illustrating the lyrics. For collections that already include such classics as Jane Hart's Singing Bee! (Lothrop, 1982) and Nancy Langstaff's Jim Along, Josie (Harcourt, 1970; o.p.), Amery's title is a secondary purchase. br Jane Marino, Scarsdale Public Library, NY
