Finger Plays for Nursery and Kindergarten by Emilie Poulsson
Finger plays and hand actions for children to be enjoyed individually or in groups, at home or in preschool or kindergarten. Some teach counting, some nature lore, some home activities. Each involves imitation of the shapes of objects and of movement. There is a simple song for each (written for voice or piano), diagrams for hand and finger positions, and lovely wood cut illustrations which add charm to this classic originally published in 1893.
The 18 finger plays will help children develop understanding, dexterity and fine motor skills. The saying goes, nimble fingers lead to a nimble mind!
Ages 1 to 8
