Product overview

  • Mussomeli is a small town in Sicily, and Rosella Diliberto's home
  • This delightful collection of Rosella's favorite children's songs and game songs introduces your students to the culture and traditions of Italy in a fun, hands-on way
  • With clear affection for her home and its music, Rosella introduces you to "La Bella Lavanderina" (and its dance-like movements), the hilarity of keeping track of the verses in "La Macchina del Capo," "Ventiquattro Gatti Blu" (a game song about cats lined up in a row, suitable for the youngest children), and four other lively songs
  • The set includes "The Armchair Adventurer"- special highlighted sections that offer links to relevant websites in Italy and Sicily, as well as websites and activities for building a friendship with the town of Mussomeli, which has its own website, and for follow-up to history, art, musical instruments, customs etc.
  • Suggested activities through the Friends and Flags international friendship project culminate in a friendship box to send to sister classes in Italy and/or other countries
