Music in the Children’s Room

I am usually recommending books for the children, so this time I thought I would recommend some music CD’s for children. Some we have in, and others I am planning to buy in the month of December. Music helps with child development, motor skills, learning new sounds, meaning of words, etc.

Music in the library!

How about a musical blast from the 1960s?  Aside from having musical CDs by some great girl groups (The Supremes, The Ronettes, The Shangri-Las) and some super boy bands (The Rascals, Lovin’ Spoonful, The Monkees), the library also has two specialty CDs that feature this era.  The first is a CD that is set up as if you were listening to a radio show from 1967.  It presents popular songs of that year complete with commercials and features Dr. Don Rose, the disc jockey from WQXL in Atlanta.  The other item is a series produced by Time-Life that each focuses on a specific year.
For example, 1966 contains:
California dreamin’ / The Mamas and the Papas — Good vibrations / The Beach Boys — Sunny / Bobby Hebb — Daydream / The Lovin’ Spoonful –Elusive butterfly / Bob Lind — You don’t have to say you love me / Dusty Springfield — A groovy kind of love / The Mindbenders — Bang bang (my baby shot me down) / Cher — See you in September / The Happenings — Message to Michael / Dionne Warwick — When a man loves a woman / Percy Sledge — You can’t hurry love / The Supremes — I’m a believer / The Monkees — Sweet talkin’ guy / The Chiffons — Cherish / The Association — She’s just my style / Gary Lewis and the Playboys — You didn’t have to be so nice / The Lovin’ spoonful — Georgy girl / The Seekers — Winchester Cathedral / The New Vaudeville Band — My love / Petula Clark — (You’re my) soul and inspiration / The Righteous Brothers — I’m so lonesome I could cry / B.J. Thomas and the Triumphs.
Check them out . . . at the library.
