Happiness and Attitude (Set 5)
Manners and Character (Set 6)
It was easy for me to download the music and then play the songs while I worked around the house. The girls would listen to the music, sing along (loudly and enthusiastically LOL) and even dance a little.
Happy Kids Songs is a product that is truly aptly named, because the three downloadable MP3 sets I received, indeed, contain quality, upbeat music to teach social and emotional skills to children from three to eight years old. They have produced eight albums covering a variety of topics such as talking, listening, bullying, fears, sharing, happiness, attitude, and more.
Some of the songs are sung by grown-ups and some by children. Each is only a couple minutes along with clear, easy-to-sing along with lyrics. So my girls could understand the message of the songs while enjoying the fun of music. Since my little Princess Magpie is a thinker, it was fun to hear and be a part the conversations inspired by the songs.
The approximately 80-page workbook was really fun and had activities that corresponded to the songs to reinforce the lessons learned about character, friendship, manners, sharing, talking, and listening and more appropriate social behavior and socialization skills. The workbook covers all eight albums, including a total of 40 songs.
Overall, this was a success in our home, I loved that the tunes were catchy and stick in your head, I love the lessons and I enjoyed the conversations they inspired.
