My kids love music. They love to dance. They always have. In fact, most kids I've met in my life love music. With my own children and when I worked in daycare, music is such a fun way to get up, get involved and have fun.

Cathy & Marcy's Song Shop has recently released a series of DVDs for preschool children that is engaging, lively, fun, interactive and a treat for children and parents to watch. The DVDs contain musical activities that feature instruments that are both common and unique. Cathy and Marcy are engaging and the format of speaking directly to the viewers is ideal for the preschoolers watching. My kids were laughing and playing along while I smiled thinking that they were learning without even realizing it.

Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer are Grammy award winning musicians who focus on the interests and needs of children and aim to teach through music. Their songs are catchy, their smiles are contagious and their hearts are wide open to the children who love them.

I am such a believer in the power of music and think it's a vital teaching tool. I highly recommend the "Meet the Instruments" DVD series from Cathy & Marcy's Song Shop.

Another new release from Cathy & Marcy's Song Shop is the adorable CD "Little Ditties for Itty Bitties". This CD is from grammy nominated Michele Valeri and is chock full of original songs that are designed to entertain while engaging children in fun learning activities. To further the experience, you'll find that the CD contains a full PDF with lyrics and activity ideas for each song. The CD contains fun songs about animals, songs that get a child playing and learning and even a bilingual song. This fun CD is just another amazing product from Cathy & Marcy's Song Shop that I definitely recommend to parents and any caregiver.

"Meet the Instruments" and "Little Ditties for Itty Bitties" would be welcome perfect additions into any home, daycare setting or classroom. Get those kids up and moving while they sing and learn! And, by all means, join in with them!
