We all need a little groovy time in our lives. Something to get us shaking our tails and moving to the drum of a different beat. For some fun children's music from Africa, here's a 10 song CD with catchy lyrics and rhythms that will have your kids bebopping and wiggling like a happy hippo or wondrous Warthog.
With lyrics that range from funny, to touching, to sleepy (every good children's CD needs a lullaby), Beautiful Creatures is a wonderful collection of African animal themed music that is "uniquely South African with a positive global message." We love to listen to it during craft time and have found it to be a great energizer for clean up time. The kids seem to move just a little bit faster and with a little more enthusiasm.
So get your maracas ready (or any thing you want to shake) to sing and dance along with Alan Glass, Ed Jordan and Paul Choritz of Beautiful Creatures about a lazy lion, an over eating elephant, a lucky lizard, Imvubu the happiest (vegetarian) hippo and all their African friends. Head over to their website for a free coloring page. Get your copy of Beautiful Creatures (approx $11.90 USD) or download it $9.90 on iTunes
