The songs are separated into these sections: About Folks, About the Wonderful World, About Things That Sing, and Shining Hours. There is an Alphabetical Index and and Index of First Lines of Poems at the back.
The Kindergarten Book by Lilla Belle Pitts, Mabelle Glenn, and Lorrain E. Watters with illustrations by Joan Esley and Margo Pisillo. From Ginn and Company with 1949 copyright. This hardcover book measures about 12-1/4″ x 9-1/4″ and has 164 pages of songs with some full-color and black and white illustrations.
See photo above. Former school book with stamp inside. Covers show wear on the corners and library tape and top and bottom of the spine. The binding is “wiggly” and there are a few loose pages, but all pages are here. I found some check marks or other markings on some songs. There is also a listing of songs on small pieces of paper on paper clip at front. From clean, smoke-free home.
Generally sent the same day payment arrives. Unless you request otherwise, I will wrap the book in plastic wrap to help protect it from the elements, tightly sandwich it between pieces of cardboard, then wrap in brown paper to send via Media Mail with Delivery Confirmation tracking. See the shipping page for the cost to send a three-pound Media Mail package. Insurance is an additional cost as described. I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item. The second item may travel for free or just a few cents more — so it’s worth taking a look at my other items before you complete your order.
