Over the Garden Wall is a one-of-a-kind collection of thirty-eight traditional children's songs, rhymes and games from England, beautifully illustrated with rare photos from the past, along with the fresh faces of children from today. The enclosed CD contains authentic field recordings collected in the 1940s, 50s and 60s, along with new recordings of children from schools in villages, towns and cities throughout the UK. Second in a series of volumes designed to bring scholarly research and practical application together in one anthology, this book is perfect for use in both home and school. Parents and children will enjoy exploring past, present and future through England's rich heritage of musical play, while teachers will find activities for the classroom. Over the Garden Wall includes historical references for each song, pedagogical indices and suggestions for developing a literacy-based music curriculum. Ideally suited for teaching musical skills, this collection provides a “vocabulary” of music and play from which children can draw today. Available: Book/CD. Suggested for grades 1-6.
