Singing is fun! If you don’t believe it, you should really try it out! Ideally, you should try out one of the 25 new children’s songs in this book. Here you will find something for everyone: songs with moves (e. g. “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”), animal songs (e. g. “On the farm”), playing songs (e. g. “Lots of Colourful Balls”), Christmas songs (e. g. “Baby Jesus is here!”) and many more.

All of these songs came from educational work with children in nurseries and primary schools (among others, early years’ music schools and interactive concerts).

On the accompaniment CD included you will find all of the songs recorded to give you an impression of the music. They give you an idea of how the songs can sound when you perform them in nurseries, primary schools or at home.


This book is available in German only.

35 new children's songs for every day

Oliver Ehmsen, active musician (pianist, keyboard player and singer) as well as a trained teacher, has written two books with interactive songs for children, created through his educational work with children (e. g. in early years’ music lessons). “The Green Frog with the Red Hat“ appears with the author at nurseries and primary schools and helps him out with lessons, and is also the title of the first book. The second book, “A Suitcase Full Of Songs” (AMA-No. 610429), offers 25 new children’s songs for the whole year round.

“Singing is fun“ and music promotes intelligence. In this context, the author has composed songs which invite you to sing, play and dance. There are separate playing instructions and sometimes the song text might require some actions. This concrete encouraging character is especially important for the author, as learning to express yourself and language are linked with listening.

The songs are energetic, lively, dreamy and full of feeling and offer a qualitative attractive music for all occasions: “Animal music“, “We’re making music“, “For each other – with each other“ or “Throughout the year“. The books are designed in a child-friendly way with pictures by Manfred Drechsel. While in the first book, the songs are only recorded on the CD with piano accompaniment in parts so that the teacher gets an impression of the sound, the second book includes recordings of the full songs.

The books also offer extra material for early musical education and gives teachers clear and descriptive material for working with children in nursery or primary school.
