Hi! I'm wondering if you all can recommend some children's rhymes and songs that are positive or at least free of ghastly, scary, and offensive things? [more inside]
My child memorized all the states through this song "Fifty Nifty United States" Are there other songs that where you can memorize useful/ education lists? you know, for kids...
Please help me thrill my 4 year old daughter with suggestions of songs that have the singer saying "Hey!" more than once. She told us awhile back that she loves songs that have "Hey!" in them, so I want to make a playlist of "Hey!" songs. The "Hey!" should be punctuated and repeated at least once - preferably more than once. The songs don't have to be songs for children, but should be at least semi-appropriate for 4 year olds (i.e. profanity is out, but innuendo that they won't understand until they are much older is ok). Some examples of stuff that we already have: "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" by the Beatles, "She" by the Monkees, "Get Off Of My Cloud" by the Rolling Stones, a couple traditional Greek songs. Any genre or time period is fine! ULTIMATE FOUR YEAR OLD HEY! PLAYLIST - GO!
Name that swingin' kid-appropriate tune! [more inside]
Any recommendations for songs for a Ukulele songbook to be used in schools in Kenya? A friend of mine got asked to to help make suggestions for the songbook.
Where can I find interesting versions (i.e. opera, acoustic, rock, etc.) of traditional children nursery rhymes/folk songs? Any language is fine. [more inside]
What do you sing to your kids? My six-month-old is thrilled with pretty much any song I sing to him, but "The Itsy-Bitsy Spider" gets kinda old after the 500th repetition... [more inside]
At least two English nursery rhymes (The Muffin Man and Oranges and Lemons) reference real, geographically precise locations. What are some non-English nursery rhymes that encapsulate an equivalent level of geographical (meaning, actual street names and/or distinct locations) detail?
