For more than 25 years past the Editor of Sunny-Side Songs, Dr. W. Howard Doane, has been deeply interested in and actively engaged with the Song Service in the Sunday School.

Dr. Doane's experience as a Sunday School superintendent, as well as a popular composer of sacred music, has given him peculiar advantages in the compilation of a work which children will sing, and which will contribute to the spiritual influence of the singing.

Over two years has been consumed in the preparation of SUNNY-SIDE SONGs, during which time the opportunity has been embraced to test the songs and make sure that each page could be useá with pleasure, gratification and profit by all lovers of Sunday School Songs, old and young, experienced Christian and little child.

The necessity for songs on Praise, Prayer, Faith, Christ, Activity, Sunday School, Repentance, Salvation, Heaven, and kindred subjects, as well as for Missionary, Anniversary, Christmas, Easter and Special Days, has been recognized.

To aid in a hasty examination of the book, and to give a fair idea of the variety and character of the compositions and of the: popular authors and composers who have contributed to SUNNY-SIDE SONGs, attention is directed to the following pages: 7, 17, 25, 31,. 32, 38, 51, 56, 66, 79, 80, 82, 94, 99, 114, 116, 118, 126, 132, 131, 148, 150, 152, 153, 156, 174, 202, 203, 204, 208 and 213.
