This giveaway is now closed and the winners have been contacted. Congratulations to the winner and thank you to everyone who entered!
DidiPop is a wonderful children’s musician. We’ve been listening to her for a couple years and I just love her happy sing-along tunes and the child like fun she has with her songs.
So when I heard that she had created a new lullaby album, Bunny in the Moon, I knew it would be good. It’s DidiPop! Of course it will be good.
I wasn’t prepared to be blown away.
First of all, this isn’t like any lullaby album you’ve heard before. It doesn’t start with slow, sleepy songs. Nope, the first song on this album is all about splashing and having fun in the bath! The idea here is to start the music before your child is sleepy and make it part of your night time routine. The first songs are about getting ready for bed: taking a bath, putting on your PJs, brushing your teeth.
As the songs continue they start to slow down just a little. The next songs are about saying good night, snuggling and reading a bed time book. By track 7 the lights are being turned off and the songs are slow, melodic and gentle. And, if all goes according to plan, your child will be asleep before the album is done!
We’ve incorporated this CD into our bed time routine and it works perfectly! I put the CD on when we’re getting ready: PJs and teeth brushing, turning down the covers and getting settled. Ivan is generally still pretty worked up at this point so his energy level matches the energy of the songs. But these songs are also signaling to him that we’re getting ready for bed. As the songs slow down, he does too! I’m both happy and a little sad to report that we’ve been listening to this CD for 3 weeks now and Ivan has yet to hear the last song, Little Star (well, mostly happy – a sleeping boy is a good thing).
