Do you have any of these materials/songs available as apps for iPad and iPhone?
I sure don’t but would love to some day:)
Just found your site – as an EC teacher in Australia was interested to look at some of the experiences shown from environments in USA. Just a thought to your CD, am always open to investigating new music ideas but was a little disappointed as the “snatches” of songs don’t really give a true idea of the content. Have been burnt too many times buying children’s music when I haven’t heard the tunes properly and the CD turns out to be not suitable. Is it possible to hear a couple of your songs full length on any other site? Thanks Lynette
This is my fingerplay and music website. You can listen to this song in its entirety. Most of my songs are very short and very simple so the first phrase just about demonstrates most of the song:) The songs I have on my fingerplay blog are mostly songs I have written and sing without the music background added but this link does include the instrumental. http://littlefingersplay.blogspot.com/2010/03/preschool-song-train-station.html I hope this helps:)
Love your music! Do you deliver to Bangkok, Thailand?
Yes – I do:)
How much does that CD cost? I am thinking of a very good gift from it.
$12.00 before shipping:)
I’ve just bought your CD. I love many of the other songs too. The songs are short and just right for my class of 30month – 3year kids. I have difficulty downloading the lovely graphics for the songs.
I will email you the pdf Daphne!!
Thanks Deborah for the CD and for emailing me the lyrics (pdf) earlier on and when I received the CD yesterday I tried to print the lyrics but couldn’t. I really love the songs and will teach the songs to my class when school reopens in January. Can you email me the lyrics again at my other email at gmail.com Thanks so much.
I sure can Daphne! I will send them to you right away.
Is there still a way to watch and sing the songs like last year> My children loved watching them as they sang especially the busy busy bee. I cant find them:(
Yes, my music blog is still available! Just go here : http://littlefingersplay.blogspot.com
Thank you Deborah! But these videos are not loading. They just keep spinning around the loading button. Is there another outlet or way to fix it? Are there any programs required to play videos? It didnt show any requirements. I would appreciate it! Each video is spinning and not loading, I wait a long time too. Thank you!! I hope it will work soon. They are so cute.
I went to your littlefingersplay blog spot and did download the latest version of adobe flash player and the video clips still do not upload. Do you know what I need to do so I can view the cute videos to your songs? Will someone be fixing it soon? I would appreciate it as my little ones love your songs so much and want to see the cute videos of the songs. thanks!
I think that slideshare (where my slide shows are housed) has changed their site so now I will have to spend time figuring out how to get the slide shows to work again. This is a project that I will have to do over the summer. I am so sorry about that!
Hi. I am a preschool teacher and would love to own your CD. I was wondering if you have some of your songs available for me to purchase and download online, instead of having the CD shipped to me. I am willing to pay full price, but I would rather receive the songs immediately, than wait for the CD to be shipped. Please let me know if there is a way you can work this out for me. I can pay by debit card. Thank you!
You know, I used to offer that but there wasn’t much interest so I stopped offering it. Perhaps I should offer that way again. Let me see what I can do and get back to you asap.
Just been put onto your website – Absolutely fantastic, as a Family Day Care Educator in Perth Western Australia. Always looking for great craft ideas for my littlies to do – thanks sooo much for all your endless hard work, and I will be buying you CD it sounds great.
Just wanted to say that it was great to meet you and I really enjoyed the ideas that you shared. It’s given me the motivation I need to continue helping “my” little ones to learn and grow. Going to purchase the CD so that I can share some of the new fingerplays as that is a big part of our circle time. Once again, thanks and have safe travels. Oh and stay warm.
Thank you Linda! I had such a wonderful trip and will miss that warm weather!! I hope to get my second CD out sometime this summer – I am a little slow on completing the process:)
Just ordered your CD will it have the lyrics? If not, can I find them somewhere?
I will send you the lyrics to Monika!
Bought your Cd and love the songs! you are blessed with such a soothing and beautiful voice for children’s songs! I’m looking forward to your new cd this summer. May you will make a music web site where we can download songs too. I would definetly pay the price to hear other children/toddlers songs. We be using your cd in my toddler class room 15months to 2 yrs old.
Thank you Mrs Susan : Toddlers
I have much to do to make my music available to folks Susan! I will definitely try to do some work on it this summer. Thank you so much for your very sweet comment and ordering the CD! I really appreciate that so much:)
I´d like to order the CD but before I need a confirmation. Could you send it to me in Brazil?
(please answer by email)
I am interested in your CD but I would need the lyrics. Does your CD come with the lyrics or does the buyer need to ask for the lyrics?
The lyrics are available online. It will take you to a link after you purchase the CD to download all the lyrics. If you run into any problems, just let me know and I can email them to you!
I ordered your CD last night after attending the workshop you did in Montgomery, Al. I was wondering how long it takes to recieve it? Thanks
I sent the CD out to you today! Should just be a few days:)
Hi I ordered a CD today, but I saw that paypal had my wrong address. Can you please send it to me at 225 Scenic Ave., Santa Rosa, CThank you!
Yes – I will send it to this address! Thank you for letting me know and for your order!
I would love to buy your CD but is it possible to download the songs online staright after the payment? I will start teaching 3 year olds in the end of August and I would love to prepare by listening to your songs before school starts. I would also like to have the song lyrics emailed to me as blogspot is banned in China, so I have no access to it.
Thank you very much for sharing your amazing work!
I can send you the words to the song via email but at this time the songs are not available by download.

Hi, I would like to purchase, do not have a visa/master card can make a EFT only… and I would like to purchase the cd
I just heard your song “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” and would like to purchase the cd but can’t seem to find the song on the Simple Songs for Preschool. So where can I find it and purchase it?
That is an old favorite – it isn’t my song unfortunately. You can find it on a Hap Palmer Holiday CD though:) It is one that has been republished by many over the years and is one I sing every year with my students.
Thank you for your help. We have a christmas program coming up and I have the 2/3 yrs. class and would like to preform this song and dance. Thank you once more. 🙂

This is Josephine from Malaysia. I love your songs very much, they are really cute! I would like to buy the CD for my preschool class teaching.
1) If we order today (Dec 18, 2013), how fast can we receive the CD? We need to have the CD by end Dec, is it possible since now is almost X’mas holiday?
2) Is there a digital format of the songs and videos for us to purchase and download, since we are in a bit hurry?
If you order the CD, I will mail it out to your the same day. I am not sure how long it will take for the mail to get to you. I will follow up with you by email as well.
I cant listen to the samples as they are not opening.:(
Excellent project! Thank you for sharing your talent. I can tell you know how to engage your students, and I love the thought that for the rest of their lives, every time they see a bee….
Loved you at the Lake City conference. You have a lot of great ideas especially the one painting with M&M’s. Loved your outside classroom.
I am so happy to see you found the blog and it was a pleasure joining you all in Florida! You can see how to make the M&M paint here and if you have any other questions, feel free to drop me a note! http://www.teachpreschool.org/2012/01/mixing-up-bright-and-colorful-mm-paint-in-preschool/
I just ordered your cd.
If you could kindly include the words to the songs I would appreciate that. Thanks so much.
I ordered under my husbands name which is John Clune Westfield Ma.
All the songs on the CD can be downloaded here: http://18.104.22.168/~skettyjo/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/Simple-Songs-for-Preschool-Book-master-pdf.pdf
Thank you so much for your order!!
Oh perfect, thanks again and thank you for all you do!
Can you sent the Cd to Brazil? Best regards
Great site!!! very hands on and inspirational.
Deborah, my Montessori early childhood classroom loves your songs. The best part? I have only introduced them to a few so far. They love One Little Hammer and There’s an Ant, especially! Thank you! ~ Marnie
Yay! I haven’t introduced all the songs to my class either! We do a lot of repeating before moving on to new songs so they feel more confident! Thank you for your message Marnie:) So sweet!
do you see the pic on the songs ?
I am not sure what picture you are referring to Kathy.
I received your CD a couple of weeks ago and due to illness etc. we have not introduced it yet. We will be doing so today and I noticed that you had emailed the lyrics to some of the others that had purchased the cd and would love for you to send them to me as well. I am sure the lyrics are easy but even though it is just my 2 twin granddaughters sometimes they get so loud I cannot hear the words.
I will send them to you by email Peggy!
I recently received the CD. I think my preschool class will really enjoy the songs! Was I supposed to receive a link so I can download the words to the songs?
I have received your CD so thank you so much. I will be trying out some of the songs this week here in Adelaide, South Australia.
Can you please send me the PDFs for the songs and lyrics.
I have sent them to you by email Michelle 🙂 Let me know if there is any problem at all.
very good and nice
these are very odd but I like them
Thank you! I think?
I love your songs! They will be a nice addition to my day care. We always have a great day if we sing in the morning. I will be at the conference in Huron, SD that you are the keynote speaker at, it will be a blast. See you in May.
See you in May Wanda!!
hi teacher deb..i really love your songs…i just wana ask if you could deliver here in the Philippines?
Yes, as long as you provide a valid mailing address along with your order.
Just purchased your simple songs for preschool cd and was wondering if you have a youtube or pictures of actions for any of the songs? Thank you!
Thank you for your order Lisa! I sure don’t have any video or photos illustrating actions for the songs. I should really take the time to do that as it would be a very helpful tool to have. Perhaps I can make that a summer project!
Thank you for such simple and wonderfully put classroom rules.
This august will be my first year as a vpk teacher do you have any other pointers on classroom management and effective teaching techniques on hand writing and circle time that keeps their attention. I would appreciate all the help I can get.
i loved ur blog and ur creativity. I m indian kindergarten teacher, i wish i could get some song related to phonetics so that kids could start to read english and speak too.
Hello! Darling music!
Does it come with activity ideas? Or lessons?
I am a Speech Language Pathology Assistant and travel to preschoolers homes for therapy. I need digital copies of your songs that I can store on my tablet for use with the children. Do you have an app or other means of downloading your songs to a device?
Unless you can find a way to record the songs from the CD to a digital device, I am unable to provide anything as an alternative at this time.
The songs are just amazing…. Is the Cd available for sale?
If yes, please let me know the charges and how to buy it.
