Little Music Lovers Review & Giveaway

We love music here in our frogpond. There is a radio in the girls room that plays 24/7/365. They can't sleep without music. If it's dead quiet, forget about it; they'll be up for hours! During naptime for the youngest tadpole, I turn on the local classical music station and she's out like a light in minutes-that is if she's not pointing out that the music playing is from Nutcracker, Fantasia, or another cartoon.

Due to our love of music, you can imagine how pleased I was when I was asked by Role Mommy to review the new Little Music Lovers CD's.

Little Music Lovers

Little Music Lovers is a 4 CD series for children. The CD's include Smart Music for Activity Time (all Bach pieces), Smart Music for Story Time (all Beethoven pieces), Smart Music for Play Time (all Mozart pieces), and Smart Music for Bed Time (well known lullabies from various composers). Some examples of the music you'll hear are Beethoven's Fur Elise, Mozart's Piano Concertos, Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.4 in G, What Child is This and Ave Maria. (You can see a full track listing for each CD on the Little Music Lovers website.)

Classical music is believed by some researchers to cause "The Mozart Effect," a phenomenon that can potentially aid in the development of math, reasoning and memory skills, while also giving babies and toddlers a head start on learning language.

I received a sampler CD that included 2 songs from each CD. I played it in the car on a short trip out of town, and the tadpoles loved it. They enjoyed the peacefulness the music provided on our trip (okay, I may have enjoyed that more than they did), and recognized many of the songs. The music relaxed everyone so much, all the tadpoles fell asleep on the way home (Mr. Frog may have nodded off a little bit too:P).

Thanks to Role Mommy, I have been approved to offer one CD, of the winners choice, as a gift to you! Woot! This is a perfect stocking stuffer, or a great gift for a new mommy!
