Hand Songs: Read and Rhyme with Me From Many Lands
by Kathleen Ermitage
Read and Rhyme with Me is an early childhood anthology that includes one song, two rhymes, and a poem in Spanish, French, Hindi, and Mandarin. All pieces also appear in English. Hand Songs are symbols built into the text that encourage movement, or "finger plays." The book is great for parents and teachers who want to introduce a second language, build literacy, and introduce diverse cultures.
