I'll Be Alright
This CD is really great for all ages—especially school age children—but Baby Bear and I love the beats of the songs so much, we got an early start.
What’s nice is that many of the songs teach a lesson: “Twelve Months” teaches the twelve months of the year. “Musical Drill” (one of my favorites) teaches the different musical notes: quarter notes, half notes, and whole notes. It does this both with a definition in the song as well as demonstrates through the rhythm of the song. There’s also a rap on famous composers, and a song that tells the story of the three little pigs. The CD has a good mix of genres of music—rap, blues, etc., as well as instruments. In addition, some of the songs feature children singing, which Baby Bear especially enjoys.
Definitely check this one out: http://ax.itunes.apple.com/us/artist/dave-fletcher/id4106716
