This second volume in a series designed to bring delightfully singable songs and practical pedagogy together is perfect for use in both home and school. Songbook Two also features extension activities for the classroom, historical references, pedagogical indices and suggestions for including these songs in the First We Sing! literacy-based music series available from Hal Leonard. This second volume comes with a Sing-along CD recording featuring Inner Voices, a group of 8-12 year old singers from The West Texas Children's Chorus. This enhanced CD also offers PDF songsheets for projection or print options. Songbook Two includes suggestions for Orff instruments and recorder, along with seasonal and holiday songs, singing games and songs. Ideally suited for teaching musical skills, this collection provides a “vocabulary” of music and play from which today's children can draw.
