Monkey Monkey Music is releasing its newest CD titled What are the Odds? on August 31, 2010.
Monkey Monkey Music is a children’s music program developed by Meredith LeVande, an educator and songwriter who has close to a decade of experience working with preschool aged children. Meredith believes that learning and music should be a fun, joyous, experience for children, which is why her music and CDs are so successful.
Not only are her CDs enjoyed by kids, but adults can appreciate the songs and catchy lyrics as well. I found myself singing “What are the Odds?” on the way to work one morning. I should include that Baby Bird was not with me in the car at the time.
I really like the whole CD and the song “Air Guitar” is played in our house a lot right now. My husband plays guitar (used to be in a couple bands) and he has a wonderful collection. When he and Baby Bird get playing, they listen to music and play the air guitar so this is a fun song for her.
I also like “Wheels” which bares a slight resemblance with “The Wheels on the Bus” except it is more upbeat and “Hello” which is another catchy song. Okay, maybe I should just take all of that back and say I liked the whole thing.
What are the Odds? is listed as being good for children 2 – 7. Baby Bird just turned 2 and she really enjoys it.
Papa Bird and I try to be concious of what songs we play when our daughter is in the car and this is a great CD to have on hand. It stikes a great balance between children’s music and adult pop songs. You can tell by listening to the songs that Meredith loves to entertain children. She has a beautiful voice and all of her songs are just — fun.
