Product Description: (information taken from Tomoson.com)
Music in Motion continues off of the success of the critically acclaimed first release, The Wheels on the Bus. This time around, Lee and his team of top L.A. musicians recorded an album designed to get children moving to the beat while simultaneously learning about musical concepts and instruments.
Through groovy soul tracks, this mostly original set draws kids into the action with specific instructions on what to do from funny dances, to playing air guitar, to responding to musical cues, to simply nodding their heads to the beat.
An entirely new band of feline characters known as the Kool Katz guide the fun, and the enclosed 10-page booklet features colorful illustrations of each Kool Kat playing their own instrument.
Ten percent of the wholesale price of Music In Motion will be donated to CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting poverty.
My kids and I received a copy of the Groove Kids Nation CD to review. This CD of groovy kids songs are a mix of blues and soul. There is a total of 10 songs on the CD and each one is fun and energetic. Inside, you will find a colorful book that shows the listener what the characters look like.
The lead male singer kind of reminds me of the guy on Yo Gabba Gabba on NickJr. I'm not sure if it's him or not but it sure sounds like him. Either way the kids like the CD a lot.
I like the way the songs teach the kids about music and get the kids moving. We were able to have a mini dance party in the family room. We do that from time to time. My six year old seemed to be into the music more than my ten year old, so keep that in mind.
My sister-in-law is a kindergarten teacher and I think when the kids get bored with this CD, I'll give her the CD for her class to listen to. It would make a nice addition to school parties or for free time. The songs are all clean, which means no foul language and no suggestive materials. Just pure, clean music and fun.
I also LOVE the fact that they are using 10% of sales to help fight poverty. If we could all chip in maybe no child or person would go hungry again. Bravo to Groove Kid Nation for making a difference. If you would like to learn more about how you can fight poverty while grooving out, check out www.groovekidnation.com
