Naturally this book is to fit in with the waldorf idea of rhythm to the day/year and using songs to celebration key events, to transitions between, say, playing a game and tidy up - singing grace etc. The book aat the beginning also discusses the importance of song for young children - and it is indeed very important for language acquisition.. and as you, the parent, is encouraged to make up little songs too, so they are more personal - it also helps young children to begin to love storytelling.
Not all of the songs appeal to me, but there are enough that I like - I also have the Singing Day - which has the exact same introduction on the important of singing to children - which I do feel is a tad cheeky. But it is a small miff. And this book does have some lovely ideas for the seasons and I do like the birthday celebrations - which make birthday more special and meaningful; so it's not all about just getting presents and having a party and cake (although important elements too!).
