Music Makes the World Go Round
First 5 California has launched a Kids Station on the online music service "Pandora." This fun new - and free - station targets parents and features music to encourage learning and physical activity. It includes not only children's music but also examples of other ways to engage and stimulate children's brains -- clapping, dancing, singing, humming! There are even more suggestions on the First 5 California web site's "Activity Center" geared towards babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
Your library also has plenty of CDs for you to check out and listen to at home or in in the car. Ask your librarian to show you.
