Little Ditties for Itty Bitties
...features activities, sounds and themes that babies and toddlers love best. Whether they’re bouncing, playing peekaboo, vrooming around the floor, moving their little diaper clad booties to the music, or being rocked to sleep, these little ditties provide the perfect soundtrack. Several of the songs are about animals, always a perennial favorite topic with wee ones. The song “My Dog George” was inspired by the popular book Bark, George, and “A Dinosaur I Am” will have listeners swinging their tales and roaring along. One song offers a bilingual activity: “Walking/Caminando,” in which both the adult and the child will learn new sounds and words.
“Early childhood teachers frequently told us they were looking for new songs to share with babies and toddlers,” explains Ms. Valeri, “I wrote these songs with their needs in mind, songs that they can learn easily and sing on their own even with the player turned off.”
“Once again Michele Valeri’s music makes our hearts sing! This CD is a celebration of our littlest ones and those who love them.”
