Thread Name: Lyr Req: Preschool solstice songs
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Preschool solstice songs
"To Drive The Cold Winter Away" is good though perhaps a bit involved and lengthy for that age. If you can get hold of a VHS or DVD of one of the "Little Bear" TV shows there's a simple song which goes, "The snow is cold, the snow is new. Little Bear loves the Winter and I do too." Just change the name each time around. Simple tune and a really lovely little episode celebrating the season without religion (these are forest animals doing the celebrating). I'll see if I can find a title for the episode. Off the top of my head I would think Vince Guaraldi's "Christmastime is Here" would work if you change it to "Wintertime." Good luck. I spent a lot of time trying to find childrens' books which dealt with spirituality without espousing a particular dogma and had little success.
