Chocolate Choo Choo: And Other Activity Songs

By ages 2 & up, children can talk and make their needs known. They have dressing and eating skills, and they are ready to learn beginning basic concepts. This is an exciting period, but a difficult one. The signs and signals that children make can let you know about their confusions or fears. With understandings, an alert parent or caregiver can anticipate difficult situations and redirect behavior.

Music is very important during this period. Listening to songs helps children learn to follow directions and develop vocabulary. Developing a sense of rhythm is important to understanding speech and to learning reading. The songs on this recording are about activities that children will enjoy doing and that will help build skills for this age.

Designed for ages 2 % up.
