Resource: The Singing Day


Associated NVN member: Candy Verney


Further information:

A treasury of over 100 songs to sing at each stage of a child’s day, The Singing Day includes a learning CD and illustrations by Claudio Munoz.

It includes songs for getting dressed, going out, food and mealtimes, car journeys, bath time, lullabies, finger and toe games, dandling songs, and songs for birthdays, festivals and special occasions. The songs are a mix of traditional, unusual, humorous, and some are composed by Candy herself.

To create this book, Candy drew on 25 years experience of running singing workshops for young children and their parents. She also consulted parents, grandparents, nursery teachers, old people, about the role singing played in their lives with children.

The insights are quoted throughout the book – touching, intimate and sometimes funny moments in family life.
