ESL Songs 2 for Children Learning English
Teaching English Songs 2
Songs to go with Stories 11 to 20, or use alone.
I recommend getting Songs 1 if you don't already have it, and if you would like game ideas for teaching songs. A songs activity book is included with songs 1, and it includes games for songs that may be used with all songs, not just the ones on Songs 1.
