The monkey business continues here at ChiIL Mama's
A-Disc-Wednesdays. This week, one lucky winner will take home Meredith LeVande's latest CD, What Are The Odds, just released August 31st. Check out her web site at Monkey Monkey Music to hear some of the new tracks, order your own CD or watch her videos. There's even a Monkey Monkey Music game room, where your preschooler can play fun, simple games.
This CD does aim for the younger listener (listed as recommended for 2-7 year olds), and Du-Jay and Sagezilla both agreed five year olds and under would enjoy it the most. If you have a preschooler at home who is feeling a little left out as the big sibs head back to school, this 16 track disc might be a timely surprise.
What's more, this new release isn't purely entertaining, it's brainy and brilliant. With Meredith's monkey magic, your littles can learn right along with their older sibs, and have so much fun, they won't even realize how much they're innately absorbing.
Five years ago Meredith's debut album, Monkey Monkey
Music with Meredith LeVande, became an instant hit with
families nationwide, was a Parentingmagazine "Pick,"
and was in rotation on Sirius Satellite Radio, earning a grassroots
reputation as a classic children's recording. Meredith
LeVande has, since 2005, devoted herself to
performing for children in intimate settings, becoming a favorite
among NYC area families and creating a repertoire that has grown
organically due to her one-on-one interactions with children of
virtually every culture imaginable.
With the new Monkey Monkey Music CD, What Are the Odds?, Meredith has created something remarkable, finding the middle road between baby songs and pop band songs where kids' lyrics are simply added to music that would otherwise be played for adults. Meredith's music is not only child-friendly, it's truly child appropriate, developed with the healthy growth of the young child in mind.
