Beautiful Creatures-Children's Songs of Africa
I'm always on the lookout for great sing-a-long CDs for the kids to listen to in the car when we go on short trips. That's why I was so excited when I found out about Beautiful Creatures -Children’s songs of Africa by Ed Jordan and Alan Glass. It's the perfect CD for kids and parents too! Beautiful Creatures was formed in South Africa in 2004 by Alan Glass, Ed Jordan and Paul Choritz. They used South African artists, actors, and musicians to create this CD that resounds with awesome Africa drum beats.
What I love most about the CD are the songs themselves. Each song is about an animal that can be found in South Africa. Some of the animal songs include: Mufasa, an elephant that eats all the time, to Imuvbu the Happiest Hippo (my kids favorite) and also one of my Lion King favorite animals, Wallace the Wondrous Warthog. One other thing I really loved about this CD is the African lullaby. My kiddo (and my husband and me) is getting tired of the same old nighttime music for my son. The African lullaby is perfect.
You also need to check out the Beautiful Creatures website. It was here that I found a cute coloring page to download and print for my kids. I also found out about the other CDs and even books that are available. Perhaps the most interesting is the news of Beautiful Creatures Live on Stage. Right now I believe it is just in South Africa but maybe in the future they will come to the States or Canada!
