Peter and Mary Alice Amidon are versatile and widely respected performing and teaching artists who for the past twenty years have dedicated themselves to traditional song, dance and storytelling.
$20. JUST RELEASED (March 2013): the companion book to the CD; a collection of Peter and Mary Alice's favorite songs for children, Music and lyrics with guitar chords, with artwork by Julia Zanes.
Mary Alice and Andy have drawn on their extensive experience in the classroom to assemble this collection: book/CD/DVD in one package, which includes fifty-four of their favorite movement activities for children in preschool, kindergarten and the early primary grades.
Some might say this is a collection of children’s songs, but we think of them as great songs that children happen to enjoy. Here are some of our favorites from thirty-five years of singing together and twenty-five years of recording.
The CD includes six songs not previously recorded as well as songs from the Amidon CDs: Faerie’s Gift, All I Really Need, This Pretty Planet, I’ll Never Forget, and Keys to the Kingdom.
The companion book ($20) includes written music to all the songs. You can purchase the book and CD together at a discount ($30).
