‘…You are a great team and I could listen to you all day!

I know your educational, child-friendly songs will assist many teachers, enhancing classroom teaching and learning.

The Outcomes and Suggestions in the accompanying Resource Books will make it so much easier for teachers to pinpoint the most suitable songs, and help them to 'think outside the square' when preparing their lessons.

May the teachers and pupils be inspired through and by your efforts.

Congratulations girls, work well done!!

They are learning a song for assembly in front of the whole school!

Miss Martha, Miss Grace and all the kids told me to tell you to say ‘THANK YOU!’

“I find the Lyrics excellent from a Literacy aspect and incorporate them into my library lessons whenever I can.

It is so much fun and the children love it! They used to ask why we were singing in library. I explained to them that we’re reading POETRY, and can learn a great deal from studying the lyrics.

This has proven to be true. Their reading has greatly improved and they just love singing along with the songs. Most importantly, I love it so this in turn enthuses them!!’

~ Cherie Wilkinson Teacher/Librarian
