The magic of music is in the way it can reach us all personally in unique meaningful ways. Busy Kids Love Music is a competent crash-course in some of the infinite ways we hear and experience music. Along with many sound bites to support each idea, host Carly Seifert offers some of the history behind the pieces. She helps listeners interpret what they're hearing with greater perspective into why and how it was originally created, and how it may have been changed or re-interpreted over time. Carly skillfully introduces a range of music that may not otherwise be easily discovered, expanding listeners' exposure to world perspectives and sounds. Her curated playlists that accompany each episode further the educational experience and give listeners a chance to hear musical pieces in their entirety can be found free on her website.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
