In addition to the information about the song and tips about how to teach the words and music - I love the pictures, simple black and white drawings, easy to copy (permission is granted in the book). It is often difficult to find free pictures to use to illustrate a song for junior primary. There are also great general ideas about music time in the front of the book.If I wanted to be picky I could say it would be nicer if the page numbers in the Companion matched the page numbers in the Children's Songbook, but surely I can do a little bit of the work.
Amazing help for Primary Music Leaders!
I got called to be the Primary Music Leader in our ward about 4 months ago and I had no experience. Right after I received the call I went crazy looking for resources to try to make my calling easier, and this was a great find! It has helps and ideas for every song in the songbook. The helps and ideas contain pictures that you can scan and enlarge to use for singing time. A lot of the songs have stories from LDS history that you can use to supplement your teaching of the song. I highly recommend this book. It's nice to have a hard copy of something that you can go to whenever you need help instead of searching online for stuff!
