In addition to the songs in the Children’s Songbook, you may use children’s songs from your own culture. Make sure the songs meet the following criteria:
They are short and simple.
They use a narrow range of notes (5 to 8 tones).
The words are repetitive (the same words are used several times) and easy to learn.
The words describe things the children can see, hear, touch, smell, or feel.
The words are not contrary to gospel teachings.
