Collected and edited by Jennifer Aulie and Margret Meyerkort
Gateways is one in a series of six books which are an invaluable resource for any parent or teacher of young children.
Gateways comprises verses and songs for the Morning time, the Evening time and to accompany a variety of traditional Fairytales, together with poems, songs, and stories for the celebration of Birthdays.
Founded out of the Waldorf kindergarten movement, these books provide an indispensable selection of material for working with young children. Most songs are in the scale of D-pentatonic, particularly suitable for pentatonic lyres, but quite capable of being played on any traditional 7 or 12 note instrument. Each volume includes a most enlightening introduction to music in the Mood of the Fifth, written by Jennifer Aulie.
The covers are all illustrated with watercolour paintings by David Newbatt.
