The Book of Wiggles & Tickles (First Steps in Music)by John M. Feierabend
Synopses & Reviews
For generations, the songs and rhymes of American folk culture have delighted little ones and connected adult and child. These treasures were once passed on from parent or grandparent to child, but are now in danger of being lost and forgotten with changes in technology and family structure. This series helps to develop a young child's imagination and musical sensibilities, as well as create an intimate quiet time between parent and child. Here is the text and musical notation of 88 toe-wiggling and tummy-tickling songs and rhymes for adults to share with children, such as "This Little Piggy" and "These Are Baby's Fingers". Once there were many rhymes that evoked make-believe situations while wiggling baby's fingers and toes. Unfortunately, few are recalled today. Other rhymes that involved drawing a circle in a baby's palm or on a baby's tummy and then ending with a gentle tickle are also becoming extinct. Here, in one book, is the largest known collection of those songs and rhymes.
