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. Playing circle games and singing simple songs are the easiest of activities for very young children to take part in. This collection includes 58 songs and rhymes, such as "Hot Cross Buns and It's Raining", "It's Pouring", as well as well-known circles such as "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush".
