Unleash the amazing benefits of music to aid in your child's physical, emotional, social and intellectual development! Little ones tend to want your keys, your wallet, phone: whatever you interact with! This book is designed with this in mind to become one you share. Each song is accompanied by an activity, made to grow with your little one for physical, mental, social and eco-conscious development - from newborn through childhood and beyond. These catchy melodies focus on different aspects of growth, including self-awareness, communication, exercise, and the environment. So, turn off the television and replace it with some music and sing along fun!!
This book is so unique, you have to see it to believe it. First, it has been made from recycled materials, which has allowed the cost to be much less than you would expect to pay for the quality... Second it is for all ages, beginning at the point where a child begins to listen to music and reacts to it. Most of all, the artwork is magnificent and features real-life children, plus animals from nature... The back cover says it all...The book is created to call all children of the earth...with a mission...Keep our Planet Alive. The book was published by Musically Grown, LLC and has a number of contributors who have added greatly to what should be, in my opinion, in every school in the world.
Take a look at the beautiful artwork on the front and back first. Then recognize that each page will be similar in qualify throughout... Then to add to that, each book provides original recorded songs.
A Small CD is enclosed in a small pocket on the front cover top!
The sing along songs are catchy, joyful and will easily have a child responding to the rhythm...then the songs can be song as the child begins to pick up the words... Each of the songs also appear in the book and is matched with children with instruments in a painting that is easily worthy to be showcased.
You may be sharing parts of this book with children, but, in my opinion, it is written for their caregivers, including those who are teachers, day care operators, and, of course, parents and grandparents. There is substantive materials regarding the topics presented which includes footnotes references of the research backing what is shared.
The book is divided into three parts. The first one presents the songs. Each of these have reason for its being written, such as "Be Nice" or "Earth Child" or "Yum" which, guess what, tells about eating fruits and vegetables and how they help you grow.
The second part is about Play, but here again, each is used to teach about the environment, and music and helping children learn important sound information in an easy fashion.
The final Part is to "Grow" and includes basics in developing routines, listening to bedtime stories and so much more. And, yes, several bedtime stories are included...
I couldn't think of anything that could be added to this book to begin helping children to happily meet and explore their world as they grow older...This book is one of a kind and exceptional in quantity and quality... It's highly recommended...perfect for gifts to child care givers, teachers and all others who wish to see their children begin to learn what is important right from the beginning!
Kudos to all who participated in creating this fabulous book!
