The 28 songs in this collection celebrate children and their membership within a larger community. Created by a master-teacher and licensed music therapist, the songs and activities are designed for use in a primary classroom which includes children with special needs (although any class would certainly benefit from the concepts presented through the songs.) Included is a brief introduction outlining the basic concepts and strategies to promote therapeutic learning in children with special needs. A performance/accompaniment CD as well as suggestions for movement and rhythm instrument play are included.
