This CD combines the music from two classic Nancy Raven audio tapes: Wee Songs for Wee People, and Thoroughly Modern Mother Goose.

Nancy Raven is a teacher and musician, a guitarist, and innovator in teaching involving personality, mental, and physical development in young children through music. Her experiences in folk music and working with children in a teaching situation have been combined to create effective aids enjoyed by all who hear and/or use them in school or at home.

The rhyme-songs are varied in content and presentation, displaying a myriad of subjects and events that attract and intrigue and expand awareness. The melodies are simple and direct, making it easy for anyone to learn the rhymes and sing along. Delightfully accompanied by guitar, dulcimer, finger cymbals, and even a kazoo, this is truly a “thoroughly modern Mother Goose.”
