I’m excited to say that volume 3 of Steve Weeks’ alphabet songs collection is just as great as the other 2!! This cd really rounds off the collection nicely, and provides the rest of the alphabet…so now you can get all 3 cds and have fun songs to learn the entire alphabet with! I really cannot say enough about Steve’s music…the stories and music are just beyond awesome!!!

Visit Steve’s website and hear clips of his songs!

Oh my, I can’t believe I didn’t review this awesome cd yet! I’m SO sorry Jennifer! This is just a wonderful wonderful cd!! I received it for review from Jennifer and I just LOVE listening to it! Jennifer has a lovely voice and such fun songs! I especially love the song “L-L-Lemons” which even my 1yr old enjoys trying to sing! It only has the names of fruits in it but is such a catchy tune and easy to pick up that we all really enjoy singing along to it in the car! Well, of course, we sing along to all the songs…that one is just our favorite! 🙂  This cd doesn’t have a bad song on it! The entire thing keeps me and my kiddos be-bopping and singing along! Very well written, very well performed…YA GOTTA GET A COPY OF THIS! 🙂

MUSIC REVIEW: Wee Rock-Silly Sammy Sings

This is another cd I was sent for review…This one is really fun! Very well done, I think! My favorite is the “Bubbles” song…My daughter adores “Harry the Tickle Monster” and has asked for it over and over again. I am always pleasantly surprised when I really like a new cd like this because I get sooo many sent to me and only a few do I really like. But mark this one up there as a keeper! It’s really cute! Everyone should check it out! 🙂

This is a piano lullaby cd that is just sooooooooo lovely! This was given to me for review and within the first 5 seconds I fell in love with its beauty. Its just very simply a cd full of lovely, soft piano music. No vocals, just piano. With over an hour of wonderfully quiet, soothing music, this is the perfect cd for putting your little ones to sleep! HIGHLY recommended for rest time music! 🙂

MUSIC REVIEW: John Lithgow-Sunny Side of the Street

I recently received this cd for review from John’s marketing coordinator and I have to say WOW!! I was a fan of John’s before, so I already expected this to be good…but was just really impressed with how different this cd is compared to the other one I have, “Singing in the Bathtub.” (He has another cd as well, Farkle & Friends, that I haven’t yet heard, but I expect to be just as excellent as the other two.) I love the other cd, but it’s always refreshing to find an artist that has 2 very different sounding cds that are every bit as good as the other!

Most of the songs on this cd sound like they are right out of an old black & white movie. Something in the era of Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers. And it seems that was his point. I really like my children to be exposed to a variety of kinds of musical genres and eras so this cd really very much pleased me in that sense! Not only that, but I hadn’t realized that I myself enjoyed this kind of music until now! After listening to this cd, I’ve decided to go in search of more music from this era, especially those famous crooners Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra (I was already a fan of theirs, I had simply forgotten, entrenched in kid music as I have been lately)…including getting some old black and white musicals.

The title song makes me dance in my seat (we usually listen in the car) and feel like life is a-ok…Same with “Pick Yourself Up.” My daughter can’t listen to “The Laughing Policeman” enough times (it makes us laugh!)  and “Getting to Know You” makes me have fond memories of watching “The King and I” as a child…and make a mental note to check it out from the library soon to show my daughter! (We’ll fast forward some parts that wouldn’t be appropriate for a 5year old…)

There are some other songs on this cd that sound more like the kids music on Singing in the Bathtub (and just as good!), but most of the songs are big band style music made to appeal to modern children…altering some of the lyrics to be appropriate to children…very very neat!

I HIGHLY recommend this cd! There’s a feel to it that I have yet to find in any other kids cd…check it out!
