This Little Puffin Finger Plays and Nursery Games by Elizabeth M. Matterson, Claudio Munoz

No parent, teacher or nursery group should be without this classic treasury. There are songs, rhymes and games for every occasion, all chosen for their proven popularity with young children. Collected from all over Britain, the contents reflect the cultural diversity of the nation, making it an outstandingly rich and stimulating collection. Since the first edition of This Little Puffin was published over thirty years ago, it has been revised and updated, allowing it to remain the most invaluable book of its kind.

About the Author

Elizabeth Matterson's interest in songs for young children arises from extensive and intensive work with the people who care for young children; as an NNEB course tutor, a playgroup course tutor and as a tutor to courses for childminders and parents; and from direct experience with young children as a playgroup leader and work with children and families who have special needs. Her other writing projects include the book Play with a Purpose for Under-Sevens which was made into a TV series.
