Printed in 1941 by The Willis Music Company in Cincinnati, Ohio, "Singing Games for Children" by Alice P. Hamlin and Margaret G. Guessford was dedicated to Margot and the Windsor Day School. The 51-page 11" x 9" oblong hardcover book shows the music and words for 25 old singing games and their wonderful accompanying illustrations, especially delightful with the children enjoying the activities. The book explains how to curtsey, bow, skip and slide in the game for the songs: 'Sally, Go Round the Moon'; 'Ring Around the Rosy'; 'I'm Very, Very Tall'; 'The Farmer in the Dell'; 'The King of France'; 'London Bridge'; 'Heel! Toe!'; 'This is the Way my Dolly Walks'; 'Squirrel in the Tree'; 'Little Tommy Tittlemouse'; 'Soldier Boy'; 'The Mulberry Tree'; 'Draw a Bucket of Water'; 'Little Jack-A-Dandy'; 'How D'Ye Do, My Partner'; 'The Thread Follows the Needle'; 'The Muffin Man'; 'Round and Round the Village'; 'Looby Loo'; 'Did You Ever See A Lassie"; 'The Snail'; 'Little Sally Water'; 'Yankee Doodle'; and 'Dance of Greeting'. As a former teacher of music, I was delighted to have the opportunity to purchase this book, not only for some of the games I was not familiar with, but for the unusual pictures of the geometric children. Book is in good, used condition with slightly bumped corners and reinforced endpapers. It is a real treasure to add to your library! Thank you for stopping by.
