These much loved collections featured
children's songs from Australia, Asia
and the Pacific Rim.
As well as lyrics and music there were
simple arrangement ideas for tuned
and untuned percussion, easy recorder
parts and easy guitar.
AND - there were great activities across
the Arts and even "showstoppers"
(little concert item pieces).
Since then we are constantly asked
for songs from the series. Some have
subsequently appeared in other
publications, but many remained
unavailable - so - we have brought
together "the best of what's left of"
this wonderful collection of songs
and activities in one convenient package.
You can download each song individually
The complete package is available for direct download saving you about 10% on the purchase price and the postage as well - up to about $15 in savings.
Go to the Bushfire Press Download Store.
OR order the CD package
3 audio CDs of 27 great songs +
backings, arrangement examples
A CDROM data disc of lyrics, music,
arrangements and activities (singing,
harmony, instrument playing, moving
and dancing, visual Art) which can be
used to project the song lyrics directly
onto a wall or whiteboard!
We hope you enjoy revisiting these
wonderful songs - and, if you haven't
yet encountered them - well, you're
in for a treat!
