Three Little Mice Marched Merrily!

Say that three times fast!

Our car rides have become much more interesting now that we have Sing-along Animal Songs with us! She is obsessed with this book/cd combination. As a matter of fact, she chastised me the other day when I lost her place in the book and insisted that I find the page for Three Little Mice Marched Merrily, so she would be ready for it when we got back in the car. This is serious business for her! I love that she can follow along in the beautifully illustrated book and sing along with such fun animal songs. We also love Lullaby for My Sleepy Dog and Twelve Kittens.

Thank you to Sugar Mountain PR for my complimentary CD/Book in exchange for my review. This precious collection comes out today (6/17) and is available on Amazon.

Children’s Book/CD Review: “Sleep Softly”

book review

Thank you Sugar Mountain PR for my complimentary copy of Sleep Softly in exchange for this review.

My daughter and I are enjoying this music. We have yet to use it at bedtime, but have used it for afternoon relaxation and even some waltzing. At age three, she already has an appreciation for classical music and gets lost in slow, graceful movement. She recognizes the variations in the melodies and refers to one of the pieces as “the sneaky song”.

The book includes origins of the music, translations, and poetry. While it is not ideal for reading to a young child, the information can certainly be adapted and shared in language a child can understand. The illustrations are colorful and imaginative. My daughter liked them and had her own youthful interpretations.

“Mommy, this is The Nutcracker.”

 

book review
“He’s upside down. You have to turn the book around.”

 

book review
“Princesses. Blue princess. Green princess. Yellow princess. And that’s Jack!”

This book is an excellent gift for a baby shower, birthday, christening, and even for a mother during pregnancy. The soft and peaceful sounds would benefit both mom and baby. And it’s certainly never too early to learn the classics!
