Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that all of the lyrics are child-friendly and educator-approved. There is a booklet included that contains lyrics and dance movements, so get ready to get movin' and groovin' with your kids.
What's the story?
If you haven't heard the music of The Learning Station, don't worry, your children probably have. This established, talented group of educators has won numerous awards for their music, including Dr. Toy's 100 Best Children's Products, and is often used in preschool and lower elementary classrooms across the country. Now fans can put on their cowboy and cowgirl boots and get scootin' to some knee-slappin, banjo-beats. KID'S COUNTRY SONG & DANCE includes 18 singalong songs, a 24-page booklet with lyrics, actions, and dance movements, and a whole lot o' fun to get you and your youngun's dancin'.
Is it any good?
The Learning Station is all about "healthy music for a child's heart, body, and mind." No doubt their latest release, Kid's Country Song & Dance will get fans on their feet, moving and singing to a fun country beat. This album encourages and teaches movement, listening, patterns and repetition, coordination, numbers, and vocabulary.
There are some old, recognizable favorites, like "You Are My Sunshine" and "Cotton Eyed Joe," and others such as "Shoo Fly," "Knees Up Mother Brown," and "Shake Your Sillies Out" that kids will absolutely love to shake, stomp, wiggle, and giggle to. There's even a song naming the 50 states, (to the tune of "Oh! Susanna") that will have your preschoolers ready for geography. Every tune is a dandy on this family album, and will have everyone dancing until the cows come home.
Explore, discuss, enjoy
Families can talk about the impact music can have on a child's development and education. Do you think music is necessary? Does music, singing, or repetition help you to learn an idea or concept more easily?
