Music note and cd

The children’s department maintains a collection of music cds which are available for loan.  In addition to traditional songs and nursery rhymes, the collection includes Disney soundtracks, relaxation music, dance and party songs, and classical music.  Guides are included with words and motions for the songs.  (In our catalog, children’s cds are listed as “CD MUS E”)

 

Songs We Love

       

Children love nursery rhymes and songs.  They especially enjoy singing a rhyming song and clapping to the beat.  We incorporate many songs and finger plays in our story programs because they delight our families and introduce an important pre-literacy skill.  Research has proven that music, rhythm, and rhyme lay the foundation for later reading success because children notice different sounds and become aware of different words.  Featuring the same songs during programs provides predictability and routine that is comforting to children and encourages parents to sing to their children at home.  Here are just a few of our favorites!
