A treasure chest brimming over with original songs and resources to educate and inspire children with or without additional needs, their teachers and their families…. Created by musicians and theatre practitioners Russ Elias and Kim Reuter of Shabang! Theatre Adventures with illustrations by Kath Stewart.

The resources in this unique book have been developed over years of hands on experience in special education settings. Using 2 themes – the sea and the garden we create songs to start and end your day, songs to build language and facilitate group sessions, songs to encourage participation and turn taking. Combined with Makaton signs the ideas come alive to enhance any curriculum, including mainstream nurseries, whilst having fun and enjoying music together.
