Learning to play well with other kids is a tough skill for any child. Throw a vision impairment in the mix and it can be really frustrating.
What's one thing that can help break down barriers and get kids together? Music, of course!
We're big believers in the universal nature of music. Everyone loves a good tune and songs about playing together can encourage social skills, too.
This month we're featuring two of our favorite artists and their new CDs about play time and get togethers....
Stacey Peasley's Together
Stacey Peasley is an emerging children's musician, a good friend, and a wonderful mom. Her debut kids' album is titled Together and all the songs are about playing and just being a kid. She sings from the heart and from the perspective of a mom, so her songs are full of love and sweetness, too.
Our favorite song on the CD is probably the title song, Together. The song starts out with upbeat horn flourishes and gets you ready to dance and hop along to the beat. The lyrics encourage kids to hold hands and dance together, play games together, and just be happy with each other. What a wonderful ice breaker!
Another great one is Dance Party. Yep, you can guess what this song asks you to do! Like Together, this song is upbeat and full of pep. It's a wonderful way to get kids to move and follow directions.
Charlie Hope's Let's Go Play!
Charlie Hope's first children's album, I'm Me!, was an instant hit with us and her follow up lullaby CD, World of Dreams, is simply beautiful. So of course we were excited to hear that she was working on another album for kids.
Charlie's newest CD, Let's Go Play, is a delightful compilation of both original and traditional songs for and about kids. Like Together, Let's Go Play follows the simple theme of playing and hanging out. One of our favorites is What I Like to Do where each child in the song sings about the type of things they like to do and they invite you (the listener) to join them. It's a sweet song that could be easily turned into a play date game.
Charlie's songs are playful and sweet and so much fun to listen to with friends. Best Friend is a nice song to listen to with that special friend, but so are The Wheels on the Bus, Ants Go Marching, and Robin in the Rain because these are songs we all know the words to.
