‘This book is an amazing resource for Cornish schools. At last teachers have a wealth of Cornish songs that they can use with their children, including cross-curricular links and musical ideas. This book provides the means with which our children can develop a love of the Cornish history and traditions’
Kath Matthews (Music AST)
‘The book is fantastic and we are really proud to see ourselves in print! Feed back from staff is that there is such a lot in the book and that it will be really useful.’

‘ITS AMAZING!! I really like the different coloured pages, the layout and the photos. The pages are so easy to get inspired by and all the website links are there! The book gives you a real sense of being able to use it to dig up so much more information and then at the same time, it gives you all you need if you don’t want to research more!’
