Dance the Winter Blues Away!
Do you and your family get that cooped up feeling from being home and indoors often this winter? Try dancing and jamming to some music at home! Here are some CDs available at your local library to help get you moving!
On the Move by Greg & Steve - Move, bend, stretch and dance to imaginative songs and guided musical activities. These songs make great warm-ups and transition activities for groups, or just shake your sillies out at home on a rainy day.
Under a Shady Tree by Laurie Berkner - Catchy and fun, Laurie Berkner is like folk-rock for kids. Under a Shady Tree is great to jam to on pots and pans, or as a soundtrack for play time. Songs like "I'm Gonna Catch You" will definitely get your kids moving fast.
More Singable Songs by Raffi - Raffi's familiar tunes are easy to learn and fun to sing along with. This CD includes "Shake My Sillies Out"; a dance party must!

Motown for Kids by Various Artists - This CD is sure to be a hit with everyone in the family. Moms and Dads, Grandmothers and Grandfathers and the kids will all love dancing to Motown classics. These are not covers, these are the original tracks performed by legends like Stevie Wonder and the Jackson 5. A great choice for a family car ride.
