Marilyn Ward developed a wonderful, comprehensive list of the top 100 children’s songs she felt were significant. Many of them we may lose if they are not preserved and taught to our children.

Her resource is no longer online but here is a document with most of the 100 songs. Actually I just counted and they are all there. 🙂
