Review:
There is no shortage of CDs designed to keep your preschooler busy in the car but when one comes along that we, as parents, can enjoy too, let’s spread the word. You will Ride ‘n’ Sing Along with sixteen very singable songs that reinforce important basic skills such as shapes, colors, rhymes, numbers and safety for your preschooler. And instead of telling kids the safety rules as many songs resort to, you will hear of a family of lambs who know all the important safety rules as they climb in to ride in “Mary’s Car.” The good news is that this recording is also written, produced and arranged in a way that is pleasing to our adult sensibilities. Most of the songs are clever, age-appropriate originals but you will also enjoy their innovations on traditional melodies. Great imagery comes to play when “Circus Comes To Town” borrows the melody and format of “The 12 Days of Christmas” with the last line becoming “in a yellow polka dotted minivan.” Great fun for preschoolers (and parents, too).
