A Fun, Creative Children's CD to Prepare for the 4th of July!

Something that I am always on the lookout for are creative, engaging children's-song CDs to listen to in the car. We live in a rural setting, and so we usually have a good distance to drive when we run errands. 

I've taken a number of CDs out of the library, and often, when I find a really good one that I like, I purchase it so that we will be able to listen to it more frequently. The library is such a wonderful resource, and I've found that this is a great way to be careful with what I purchase so that I don't waste money on a CD or a book that I don't care for once I listen to it or read it with my children. 

My Mom recently gave me a cassette tape called Wee Sing America. It was a tape that we listened to when I and my sisters were young! I love the Wee Sing tapes in general. They are tremendously creative, engaging, simple, and entertaining without relying on heavy beats in their music--perfect for young children. I grew up on Wee Sing, and so I was extremely happy when I rediscovered this wonderful tape, especially with the 4th of July so near.



The CD Wee Sing America is available on Amazon--It is loaded full of a number of patriotic songs, including some pioneer songs and early American songs (like "Sweet Betsy from Pike" and "John Henry").

I love the fact that it teaches children the patriotic songs of our country as well as introducing them to some basic educational facts about America. My children, aged 3 and 4, love it. There is one song on the CD that is a little more "upbeat" than I prefer, but I like the fact that the song teaches children the 50 states, and so I try to overlook it.  

This is truly a wonderful CD to add to your collection, especially to take out and listen to around Patriotic holidays. 



I have also been extremely happy with the Wee Sing Bible Songs CD, the Wee Sing Nursery Rhymes CD (incredibly engaging and creative), and Wee Sing Silly Songs, minus one or two that can be skipped (images below). The CDs are accompanied by a songbook, which is a wonderful bonus. 



                                                                                        
                   

If you are looking for a great resource for your children, I strongly recommend these.
