Illustrated Songbooks and Collections of Children’s Songs with Music

Posted on: August 15, 2012

Most of these collections are illustrated, but a few are not.  The ones that are not, however, offer printed music for sometimes hard to find songs.  Many collections here also offer movements or dances to go with the songs to help further engage the minds of active wiggle-worms with music.
