DESCRIPTION 

One of Wynstones’ six books compiled for parents, homeschoolers and professional educators to use working with young children, Spring contains a variety of poems, songs, plays and stories for festivals and the seasons of spring.

First published more than twenty years ago, these books are in their third edition, now reedited and with much new material added. In addition, the music has been comprehensively edited, with most songs now in the scale of D-pentatonic, which is particularly suited to pentatonic lyres and may be played on any traditional seven-note or twelve-note instrument. Each volume includes an enlightening introduction by Jennifer Aulie on music in the "mood of the fifth."

The covers are all illustrated in watercolors by David Newbatt, with the four seasonal titles each depicting a different worker. Spring contains at least 50 poems, 30 songs, 9 beloved tales and music...all about the elements of the Spring Season from the British, Irish, Scottish and Welsh. 

This lovely compilation includes emphasis on

  • Windy, rainy March
  • Spring Flowers like the crocus and daffodils
  • The spring celebrations of Easter and May Day
