Product Description

About the Author

Elizabeth Matterson's interest in songs for young children arises from extensive and intensive work with the people who care for young children; as an NNEB course tutor, a playgroup course tutor and as a tutor to courses for childminders and parents; and from direct experience with young children as a playgroup leader and work with children and families who have special needs.

Her other writing projects include the book Play with a Purpose for Under-Sevens which was made into a TV series.

Format: Paperback
I have used the Little Puffin for almost ten years now and I have to say that as a nursery nurse I could not work with out it. I have used it with every age group of children from 0-8 years old. It is so easy to use with all the songs being in catagories e.g 'seasons' and 'sea shore'. It gives simple music for songs you may not know the music to and gives fun variations of simple nursery rhymes. I thoroughly recomend that all childcare workers invest in a copy and keep it with them at all times and particularly recommend it for people who are just beginning their training as it is really useful if you have a few minutes to fill and just can't think of a song. After all we have all heard " Can you sing me a song about..." With This Little Puffin you can quickly access a song about almost anything! 10 out of 10

I have used this book for about 15 years now, and is essential for all those who are bringing up, caring or working with children. It is not a big colourful book, for sharing with children - there are plenty of those already, and it would be just too enormous if it were, and impossible to read, and expensive. This is a -pop-in-the-pocket or handbag book, to take with you to refer to and get ideas from at any moment, and to improve your own knowledge. It is almost THE definitive book on childhood verses, rhymes and songs. I was introduced to it on a music course for children in the Early Years at school. I have bought it and recommended it so many times to people. A great addition would perhaps be a CD with the tunes to sing along to, but even if you don't know the tunes, why not make them up?!

I have just rediscovered this treasure thanks to a little boy I take to nursery at the moment. his elder brother (6) confided in me that their mother "knew some of the rhymes in there". the book belongs to the nursery teacher, but flicking through it the lovely illustrations stirred memories of having this book shared with me as a child and straight away i thought 'i hope amazon has a copy!'

someone bought THIS LTITLE PUFFIN for me when I had my first child. We both enjoyed the finger rhymes and tickling songs! the repetition helped my son develop his language skills and the book encouraged time together doing fun things. i have given this book to many people who are expecting/just had a baby and they have all enjoyed the book very much. i discovered a few years ago that THIS LITTLE PUFFIN is on the NNEB course book reading list!

I have worked with young children for over many years! This book has been at my right hand when preparing song and rhyme time for small children consistantly.
I first bought this book when my daughter was born( 40years ago) and have continued replacing it with every new addition since.
The recent copy is fabulous!
I even give it as a gift on the occasion of the birth of friends grandchildren.
A GREAT LITTLE BOOK!

Format: Paperback
As a child who was brought up on nursery rhymes from this book I believe it is a must have, including all your favourite rhymes as well some you may not have heard. It is a significant achievement that this book is still for sale having been published in 1969 and it is a testiment to its learning and entertainment value. I will ,however, admit to being biased as my Grandmother wrote/compiled it....

This is an invaluble resource for teachers and any adult who have young children in their care. Themed songs and poetry also conting rhymes for educational "five-minute-fillers".

This is to replace a copy that I bought 20 years ago. I use it all the time with children aged between 4/6. You will find a song or rhyme for every occasion.
