Miss Melia would like to recommend these children's music CDs!
Literacy in Motion by The Learning Station
Recommended for ages 4 & up
The Learning Station does a terrific job of performing songs that get kids up and moving. Literacy in Motion is no exception. Each song complements a well-known children’s book and includes movements for kids to perform. My favorite is “Head to Toe Dance” which is based on Eric Carle’s book, From Head to Toe. The catchy tunes are easy to dance to whether kids follow the motions or just dance along. I like that you can read one of the books and then listen to the CD and dance to the corresponding song, which promotes reading and comprehension, and also helps kids remember the story.
Mother Goose Rocks! by Richard Snee & Robert Berry
Recommended for ages 2 to 10
Imagine Madonna singing “The Wheels on the Bus” or U2 belting out “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.” The Mother Goose Rocks! series of children’s compact discs give you just that! While the songs are not sang by the real artists (studio singers Mad Donna and ME2 perform these two selections), the tried-and-true favorites are revamped into catchy tunes with pop music beats. I enjoy singing these songs with toddlers and preschoolers because the songs are familiar to them, and are also a lot of fun to dance to! The series contains five volumes, although volumes three and five are my favorites.
