M usic-Driven! Children love lively music, and one of the best ways to teach God's Word to children is through music. "101 Songs Thru the Bible with Boot the Mule," each song written by Christian Attorney Terry Lee Hamilton, will delight as well as instruct children of all ages.

CD The Curriculum Notebook for each quarter includes a CD with all of the songs accompanying the 13 lessons. The CD contains each song sung by vocalists with the accompaniment. Also on the CD is an instrumental version of each song to be used if you do not have a piano player. Here is a list of the 1st Quarter songs.
Songbook The Curriculum also includes a bound volume of the sheet music for each year. Volume 1 for the 1st Year (84 pages) includes 32 songs. You can view the sheet music for one of the 1st Year songs entitled Before the Beginning Began to Begin.
