Song Stories for the Kindergarten

Subject

Description

Though best known for writing "Happy Birthday to You" sisters Mildred and Patty Smith collaborated on hundreds of children's songs. With songs such as "Washing and Ironing," "The Waking Flowers," "Each Mother Loves Best," and "The Blacksmith's Song," the Hills explored important concepts such as emotions, the natural world, and occupations in relatable and memorable ways. In this songbook's introduction, Anna Bryan (1858-1901) writes, "In consecutive work with children, songs selected with reference to a leading thought and to its gradually developed details, are more educative than it is possible for them to be when made an end in themselves." The book is dedicated to the Louisville Free Kindergarten Association
