This is a spiral-bound book with attached CD. The book contains the lyrics for each song on the CD (19 in all), and for some there are suggestions for games to play or ways to use the song in your teaching. Additionally, the book contains bonus music sheets for six of the songs as well as a reproducible color sheet depicting the four seasons.

A few of the songs on the CD are old favorites, such as "Jingle Bell Rock," "Fine Musician," and "Simon Says." The rest of the songs were written by the Tallons, some using traditional melodies but most with their own music. Here are a few of the original songs: "Skating," "The Hugging Game," "In My Backyard," "Fly Butterfly," "Come Alive," and "What Can You Do All By Yourself?"

These are all lively and enjoyable songs, and our preschooler loves to listen to them. She spends her "quiet time" every afternoon in her room listening to music on her CD player, and this CD is a favorite. We have also incorporated learning songs into our school day. I especially like "Come Alive," as it teaches us how to count in French. This book with CD sells for $14.95 and would be a great resource for your homeschool classroom.
