This review is about how these song are great for children’s natives

By Chicken nugget

I think there’s songs are amazing for children and I would be great for there natives


Brilliant!

By Ally

Have used for the past 4 years in a variety of ways with Children's church nativity and also some songs adapt to adult praise singers. Great catchy songs and super to have backing tracks,


Outstanding!

By Marie

Love this so much! Such simple and cheerful fun Christmas songs for kids to learn for a variety of different Christmas events. We'll be doing 3 this year, 3 next year and there will still be heaps to choose from. Found an extra use as I will love having this on as background music in the house over Christmas!


Flexible options!

By Alison

I have used this in a variety of ways from creating a whole nativity story and production to using selected songs individually for a small singing group or for congregational worship. (We've even used it as a singalong in the car!)nEach of these has been happily accepted and enjoyed by a wide range of recipients. I happily recommend this - whatever your situation you can use it! Sing Celebrate and Enjoy!


Superb!

By Stit11

With one song you are smiling and laughing, with another it brings tears to your eyes. A fantastic collection of easy to sing, modern and thoughful songs which can be used in a church or a school to great effect. We have used one or two songs every year for our school carol service as well as singing a number of them chosen to form our school nativity. Suitable from reception to year 6 we love them all! A must for all Christmas productions.


Brilliant!!!

By Bob

We used 4 songs from this last year and they went down a storm, we're going to use it every year from now on. Songs are catchy, easy for the children to pick up and a couple are do-able in grown-up services.
