David Krosner has written a great new book called "Race Around the World." He's arranged folk songs from around the world and combined them with an elementary social studies curriculum to create a wonderful integrated learning experience for students. Each song has a full Orff instrument accompaniment written by Brent Holl and Michael Nichols. David has developed a web site to go along with the book that has tons of supplemental materials about each country "visited."
All of these great recorder materials are available NOW from Beatin' Path Publications.
