Road Trips Sounds: These are a few of my favourite things...

Summer often = Road Trips for many families. There are many games you can play like I-spy or counting telephone poles or license plate spotting for hours on end. There are great songs to sing like numbers from The Sound of Music and albums by Raffi. And then sometimes you'd just like someone else entertaining your little ones so you can enjoy the scenery for a bit. Here are some tried and true favourites for your CD player or device (for downloaded material):

1. "Come Follow Me" by Lorraine Nelson Wolf. Simple and sweet and you'll be singing along before you know it. Most of the 25 songs are oriented toward nature and the changing seasons. Even the very under 3's love this one. Find the website for the Come Follow Me CD's here: www.comefollowme.org


2. "The Evergreens" by Odds Bodkin. Musical stories by a wonderful storyteller. This one is an all-time fave here with its title story. It's geared for the 3 and up age, but older children like it too. You can even do digital downloads from the Odds Bodkin website... in case you're leaving, like, now! Find lots more at www.oddsbodkin.com


3. "Mandy and the Magic Butterfly" by Ann Rachlin. Join Mandy on her musical adventure! This one is maybe more age 4 or 5 and up. I love all of Ann Rachlin's stories, and she has quite a selection on her website for all ages, including download info on her website: http://www.funwithmusic.com/index.php



Hope you enjoy the selections! Safe travels this summer!
