Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this CD will take your kids on a musical journey through the seasons, learning new languages along the way. Great for preschoolers and younger grades.
What's the story?
SOMERSAULT SEASON is spunky artist Laura Freeman's third contribution to the world of children's music.Her 2005 release, Color Wheel Cartwheel, was included in Parenting magazine's, "Baby Must Haves." Somersault Season continues Freeman's unique way of creating an entire CD around one concept. In this case, Freeman takes listeners on a musical journey through each season, discovering new languages, interesting sounds, and ways to wiggle and dance along the way.
Is it any good?
It's hard to stand out when it comes to children's music, but Laura Freeman does it easily, through kid-silly, engaging vocals, simple lyrics, and great music. Her style is intimate but funny, and has just the right balance of goofiness while still being educational for your kids. She brings the seasons to life with vocal whispers and chorus tweets and rants, and encourages little ones to move, wiggle, listen, and think all at the same time. "My Brother's a Monster," "1,2,3,4," and "Can You Shake It" are interactive, easy, and super-fun. Somersault Season is a delightful breath of fresh air and a musical bonanza that's worthwhile all year-round.
