Songs have a way of reaching inside us.
Like a close friend, they touch the deepest parts of our hearts
and memories. The songs and activities here are all favorites
from 20 years of writing and performing.
Educators and home schoolers will find connections
to everything from geography to art, math, earth science and
language arts. But beyond curriculum enrichment, the arts
are an essential part of our humanity. Music and stories are
doorways to the imagination. They foster creativity, passion,
curiosity and empathy... and more. (See Reflections
on the Arts and the Nature of Education.)
Each song link includes full lyrics and
credits. Some of the Suggested Activities are
specific to one song or subject. But most can be adapted broadly,
even though they may be described for just one song. Look
for Key Questions that can lead to teachable moments.
Once you light the fire of childrens natural curiosity,
theyre on their way to finding answers.

different chapters as they become available, please let us
