Description
 
A handmade song book with over 50 songs. The book has been divided up into seven categories: Traditional, Autumn, Winter, Spring, Animals, Special Occasions, People, and Games . The majority of the songs in this book are short nursery songs, such as 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star', 'Rock-a-bye Baby', and 'Rain, Rain, Go Away'. The book is made from construction paper which each page a different color. Pasted onto the page is the handwritten song, with the music and lyrics. Additionally, on the top right, the author has written the origin of the song. Adding even more charm to this book, relevant pictures or cutouts are added to each page. For example, a cut out of an umbrella on the page with the 'Rain Song' or an image of a church's steeple on the page for 'Glad Easter is Here'. At the front of the book is a page that lists all the songs found within. The book is bound together with two metal rings. Measures 9" x 6".
