My mom and I were running errands today, and she mentioned she'd had a very hard time finding singalong books to read to small children (baby/toddler/preschooler). It's pretty easy to find ones where it's one book devoted to one single song, but what she's looking for is each page with its own classic children's song, to sing one after another. She'd like these for reading (singing) to children, but also for getting the songs into her head so she has them stuck in her head when there is the sudden need to sing to a child and she is scrambling to think of a children's song.
I bumbled around on Amazon for awhile, finding books such as the Priddy line---but some of them have no reviews or very mixed reviews, and they don't have lists of what songs.
We looked at Target and found Nursery Rhymes (yet another from that Priddy series), and I liked it from just looking at it briefly but you can see some complaints in the reviews: evidently it uses the version of the old woman in the shoe in which she whips them all before she tucks them in. Though, even though I am not crazy about that myself, I don't think I would have gone as far as the review-leaver, who used "shocked" to describe her reaction, and concluded that the book was "inappropriate for anyone." How are we going to describe actual shock or inappropriateness-for-all-of-humanity, if we are going to use it about things such as this?
Where was I? I guess what I am looking for are titles of children's song books you've found, the kind where there's one song per page.
