Little Kids Rock

Preschool music is not only “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “The Wheels on the Bus,” although we love familiar, favorite songs during story times.

I didn’t know much about other preschool music until the four several years. In that time, I’ve heard concerts and dance parties geared toward ages 0 to 5, and parents, with some really fun music. Award winners like Alphabet Rockers, Alison Faith Levy, and Lucky Diaz come to mind.

We have new furniture to hold the CDs, so now they are in order, and easier to find. But it’s still always fun to browse what is here.  We have one CD by Lucky Diaz, call number J782.42083 DIAZ. And one by Alison Levy CD J782.42083 LEVY.

The mix tapes we use for Stay & Play also have a lot of other great artists and sources. Some include Party in my Tummy — about including fruits and vegetables in your diet. Another one is Pancakes & Syrup — it’s breakfast time. Also “Brush Brush Brush” about how to brush your teeth. And we end with a fun song about cleaning up, What a Mess What a Mess, What a Mess. I found out these songs come from Yo Gabba Gabba. We have several music CDs and DVDs from this program. One CD call number is: CD J781.546 YO

The Alphabet Rockers are also a lot of fun with a rap beat — I’ve heard them perform, as well.  According to our catalog summary, ” Alphabet Rockers is comparable to Yo Gabba Gabba and Choo Choo Soul in their hip hop style, beats, and catchy educational tunes” and include songs such as “Eat the Rainbow” and “Go!”…See CD J781.649 ALPHABET

We hope you enjoy our story times for preschool (January) or toddlers (November/December), and check out the fun music CDs we have for little ones.
