This treasure trove of an anthology is full to the brim with songs and seasonal verses that will delight children and encourage them to sing and play. Illustrated throughout with colour images, the Autumn Songbook features five thematic sections: “Animals and Birds,” “Farming-Harvest,” “Festivals & Related Themes,” “Weather,” and “Spooks, Riddles and Odd Things.”

Providing ample material for teachers and parents, the book includes selections of rhyming words, commentary on the significance of repetition, rhythm and beat, suggestions for incorporating movement and gesture, and practical teaching and parenting tips.

For years, teachers, parents, and students have requested that Sally Schweizer publish her collections of songs and verses—and here they are, presented in four wonderful anthologies to inspire the imagination and to celebrate the seasonal cycle.
