Groove Kid Nation "Music in Motion" Children's Music CD Review

 
   Jayden has always loved music.  He moves and dances to all kinds of music.  I like to expose him to lots of different varieties of music.  Recently I was sent the Groove Kid Nation "Music in Motion" CD.  This CD has some really fun kid's songs.  

      Music in Motion continues off of the success of the critically acclaimed first release, The Wheels on the Bus. This time around, Lee and his team of top L.A. musicians recorded an album designed to get children moving to the beat while simultaneously learning about musical concepts and instruments.
      Through groovy soul tracks, this mostly original set draws kids into the action with specific instructions on what to do from funny dances, to playing air guitar, to responding to musical cues, to simply nodding their heads to the beat.

      An entirely new band of feline characters known as the
Kool Katz guide the fun, and the enclosed 10-page booklet features colorful illustrations of each Kool Kat playing their own instrument.


     The CD features cats as the musicians.  All the songs have something about cats in them.  Some of the songs are remakes of popular nursery rhymes like Humpty Dumpty. There is the use of many musical instruments and there is mention in the songs about what instruments are playing.  Jayden and I listened to this CD in the car.  Jayden liked to look at the booklet that came with the CD while we listened.  The booklet features each cat playing an instrument.  Jayden liked to try and identify what instrument they were playing.  The songs are easy to follow along and the beat is catchy.  I found myself humming and even singing along.  Jayden was moving and dancing in his car seat. 

Ten percent of the wholesale price of Music In Motion will be donated to CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting poverty.  I love companies that give back.

You can purchase Music in Motion CD online for $13.98.  This would make a great stocking stuffer.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  3. I really love this CD ! Maysa has one of the most unique and incredible voices out there today, and this CD really highlights just how talented this true singer and vocalist is. Favorites of mine include "Flower Girl" , " Day N Night", "Motions of Love", "When It's Over", "I Try", and " Your Name's not on the List". Get this CD, you won't be disappointed.
