I am a member of tomoson and they have teamed up with Groove Kid Nation "Music in Motion" -- Children's Music CD for this fun review. Since I am a mom of 2 school aged children who enjoy music and dancing, I took them up on this great opportunity.
Groove Kid Nation "Music in Motion" offers a great collection of kids songs. The first Groove Kid Nation release was the "Wheels on the Bus" album and the "Music in Motion" album that I am reviewing is their second release. The "Music in Motion" album contains an entirely new band of felines called the Kool Katz. While enjoying the tunes, the Kool Katz guide you and help your children to have more fun while experiencing the music.
The "Music in Motion" songs are mostly original and are all about getting children to interact with the music by drawing them into the action with the help of the Kool Katz. I love that each CD includes a 10 page illustrated booklet that features the characters from the songs and the instruments that they are playing. This illustration allows children to get more involved with the music that they hear. They can actually visualize each of the Kool Katz and pick out the instruments that they hear and place them with the character playing it. The booklet also offers a guide on what to do from silly dances, to playing air guitar or to simply nodding their heads to the beat. This added feature allows for both creativity and learning making listening to "Music in Motion" educational fun!
My children and I loved the fun and funky upbeat music of "Music in Motion". As we listened to the first song we looked at the 10 page illustrated instruction booklet that was included with our cd. Here we learned about the Kool Katz band and we picked up a few fun dance moves. As we listened to the next few songs we practiced what we learned and had a lot of fun giggly and spending quality time together.
If you would like more information on this cd, feel free to visit the Groove Kid Nation website and look around. Here you will find musical samples from the kids songs on both the "Wheels on the Bus" and "Music in Motion" releases. You may also meet Rodney Lee and his top L.A. musicians on the site as well. If you would like to purchase a "Music in Motion" cd you may do that on the website and ten percent of the wholesale price of will be donated to CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting poverty.
Disclosure: I have received a Groove Kid Nation "Music in Motion" -- Children's Music CD so that I may listen to it and provide an honest review of their product. No other compensation was exchanged. The opinions are my own.
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.
