We were sent a fabulous hardback copy (RRP £20.00) signed by none other than Cerys Matthews, the hugely talented singer AND author of this book! Youngest absolutely LOVES singing at the moment, he wants mummy to think up little ditties as we go about our daily business, so I am finding this book a great resource for keeping him entertained and introducing him to new songs he has not heard of before (such a diverse selection to be found here). He likes nothing better than snuggling in next to me for a jolly good singsong.
The health visitor when my two were younger was always piping on about the importance of singing with your children to help with language development, so am sure she would give this her official seal of approval. Let’s just say she scares me a little, so least I can whip this book out and flash it under her nose to show how hard I am working at bringing song to my children’s lives!!!
Not only is it useful for them I found it interesting too, I like that the songs have an introduction page, so I feel I am learning more myself. It’s fun and engaging having actions for many of the songs so you can get your children up and active, away from screens and embracing their creative sides!
Eldest found the morbid songs “too freaky”! But bless he is the more sensitive of my two children. Youngest could not get enough of each and every song regardless of the content matter. But given the huge selection of songs your children whatever their interests or personality will find something of interest here.
I would highly recommend this book! Cerys Matthews has done a wonderful job, I think having children herself she had a good idea what kind of activities children enjoy! She definitely brought cheer and happiness to my four year old.
You can find out more and make a purchase on the Penguin website. It’s no surprise the book is currently out of stock, I bet it’s flying off the shelves all those mummies thinking phew another idea to keep my children occupied and out of mischief. Remember the long summer holidays are drawing ever nearer…
