I love music. It has always been a big part of my life with my family displaying amazing musical talents. Most often you will find me listening to Country music but I like all forms from Irish Folk to Raggae to Alternative Rock.
My kids, ages 5 and 2 1/2 have inherited my love of music. They both love to dance, "play" the piano and sing. Needless to say, when I was given the opportunity to download and preview the Beautiful Creatures CD I was very excited. The Beautiful Creatures CD features parent friendly South African children's music.
Here is a little blurb about the music:
Beautiful Creatures was formed in South Africa in November 2004 by Alan Glass, Ed Jordan and Paul Choritz who felt there was a need for ‘Parent Friendly’ children’s music. Using the best session musicians, actors and singers in the country, Beautiful Creatures prides itself on being uniquely South African with a positive global message.
The last five years have seen the release of seven Beautiful Creatures albums. BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, MORE BEAUTIFUL CREATURES and EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL CREATURES featuring fun educational songs about African animals. BEAUTIFUL ME, an album dealing with emotional development for children, tackling issues such as sibling rivalry, anger management, self-confidence and diversity. BEAUTIFUL BEDTIME, songs that take your children through the routine of getting ready for bed. Winding down, bathing, brushing teeth, putting your p-jays on and story time. And BEAUTIFUL CREATURES OF THE SEA, fun sea creature songs that deal with conservation. 2009 saw the release of BEAUTIFUL LULLABIES featuring 10 down tempo songs to get your baby to sleep.

My kids and I have been enjoying the music for several days now. My daughter, 2 1/2, asks me to play it over and over. She simply cannot get enough of it. The music has very catchy beats and rhythms that are sure to make Imagination Movers "Knit Knots" tap his foot! The lyrics are fabulously done. They are silly and fun, very kid friendly. The kids and I continue to have great laughs while listening to the CD. At the same time it teaches the kids simple lessons. For example, in Lorenzo the Luckiest Lizard the song talks about Lorenzo being small and hiding, that it's best to leave him alone. The songs are the perfect length. Long enough to get the kids up and bouncing around but not so long that they lose interest. There are a few slower songs that are perfect to help kids wind down.
You can go to Beautiful Creatures website to listen to a short snippet from each song by clicking HERE. I highly recommend it. The CD is available for download on iTunes. It would make a great gift for any of the little loves in your life!
But wait, there's more!
Beautiful Creatures is graciously giving one of my lucky readers a download of this CD.
