Happy Kids Songs is the compilation of eight award-winning albums that each include five songs dealing with character building and the emotional and social experiences children have at their young age. Although, the program is called Happy Kids Songs, there is a note of the following on their website:

No child can be happy all the time, but all kids can be happier with improved character, social & emotional skills.”

We had the opportunity to review three of their CDS in a downloadable version along with the workbook that provides the lyrics and a variety of hands-on activities that help promote the lessons that are taught. The book has coloring pages for children as well as other arts and crafts, drama and game activities.

I gave the children free range to choose songs and listen to what they wanted. Canyon and Lily used some of the coloring pages. All three children pretty much stuck with singing the songs. Lily liked have the lyrics printed for her to follow along.

The music is geared towards children four to eight years old. I thought that Happy Kids Songs would be a littlehappy_kids01 below Canyon’s interest, since he will soon be eight. After his sister Lily got to him, he was singing along. River, my oldest, even found some enjoyment in singing the songs.

Another reason I think they liked the songs is, because the song writer is Dr. Mac (aka Don MacMannis, Ph.D), who is the song writer and music director of Jay Jay the Jet Plane, which was a favorite series of all of my children when they were younger. Dr. Mac knows what he is doing when it comes to writing to appeal to children.

Children enjoy singing, so Happy Kids Songs may be something even children as young as two and three may enjoy and possibly older than eight years old. Most of the activities in the book are easier to complete if your child knows how to read, but it is not necessary. You can treat this as part of your bible and/or character training time with the fun of the songs and activities, while you and your child discuss the message behind what they are singing.

You may have noticed that this Is the second listening review item I’ve shared. I have another one coming up soon. They have been great additions for us, but ever since reviewing another product a while back, which is still stuck in my car CD player due to operator error (golly), we only get to enjoy these fun listening CDs when we are at home. I am gaining more of an appreciation of using CDs in the car and taking advantage of the fun and learning time we can have. Happy Songs, gives you a lot of happy tunes to sing along with your family and enjoy.

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
