Developed for children from birth and up, 'Songs for Words Wiggles and Giggles,' introduces numerous musical genres - from folk to Broadway - and is bright with fun lyrics and upbeat music. Each track on the CD emphasizes particular English language sounds, such as the /d/ sound in 'Dance My Darling' and the /s/ sound in 'Smile When You Smile.' It follows on the success of Linda Stoler's, 'Lullabies for Language and Learning.' These songs are fun, varied, and directly focus a child's attention on the phonemes that are the building blocks of language. 20 delightful tracks! 'Songs for Words Wiggles and Giggles' offers more than simple musical enjoyment by incorporating elements of phonological awareness through hearing specific repetitive sounds of the English language. Babies and toddlers are provided with the opportunity to listen and respond to these recognizable sound patterns. With the help of the liner notes, young children are engaged in learning how to interact with their environment. Learning in this way is not only fun, but it enhances and accelerates early brain development. Suggested ages: Preverbal through 5 Years.
