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?

QUALITY
 

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.

Families can talk about...

  • 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?

Music you and your kids just can't stop singing!

This cd is full of great music that my grandchildren and myself sing all the way through every time we get in the car. I often find myself listening to it even when they're not with me. My grandchildren, nieces and nephews love this version of "You are my Sunshine" so much, they performed it for our entire family on Easter. I would recommend this cd to ANYONE looking for some good music and entertainment for their little ones.

I found this CD to be completely upbeat and fun!

This CD is absolutely amazing and the kids have so much fun --even the older ones! Our grandparents live in the country and so they even enjoyed this CD with us! WELL DONE! Even adults cannot grow tired of listening to this music!

Love, love, love it!

My daughter has loved The Learning Station since she was a baby. She's 6 now and we still sing along in the car and at home. The new CD is great fun. I'm so glad we got it. Have you seen their videos? They're so much better than anything on TV!
