Bob McGrath, beloved by children and teachers for his performances on the popular "Sesame Street" TV series for more than thirty years, has worked with Marilyn Davidson, authority in the field of music education, to write this very creative music curriculum for children ages 4--8. Seven appealing songs recorded by Bob McGrath appear on the included CD, and these songs are the basis for the seven lessons. Four other songs appear in the book as well as the CD to illustrate various musical styles, and the long-time favorite "Sing," with signing gestures included, is the encore. Students have their own book also; it's in full color and includes punch-out puppets to use with music listening activities. These lessons were prepared to help teachers provide a conceptually balanced and meaningful, yet light-hearted, music class. All Music for Fun materials are correlated to the MENC National Music Standards for Early Childhood, K-4. The Bob McGrath Rhythm Instrument Kit is available from Rhythm Band Instruments at www.rhythmband.com.
