Scripture Music for Kids: Hide ’em in Your Heart
This set of two CD’s has been a big hit at our house. We’ve listened to them for years, since Older Brother (7) was about two. As a result, we’ve all memorized quite a few Bible verses.
I must admit my skepticism when I first heard of these CD’s–how could anyone make Bible verses sound catchy? I was pretty sure they’d be lame, but due to my high regard for the individual who recommended them, I went out on a limb….and was pleasantly surprised!
Just the other day, out of the blue, Older Brother asked if I would load The Singing Bible onto his ipod.
[Note: He received a tiny ipod and docking station for his 6th birthday, in order to listen to quality literature during his rest time. Yes, it was expensive, but we considered it an investment in his education. He LOVES listening to his stories, and I love that he has an engaging activity to enjoy while Little Brother naps and I enjoy my “downtime.”]
Of course, I was thrilled to accommodate his request, which reminded me that I’ve never mentioned this fantastic resource here at Yankee Homestead.
“All music is folk music, I ain’t never heard no horse sing a song.”
–Louis Armstrong, one of the greatest artists in jazz history
Sadly, all music is NOT folk music, and some kids’ music is downright annoying. Tired of listening to Veggie Tales and The Wiggles? Need some great road trip tunes for a family trip? Looking for a great gift for a young friend or a family with kids?
