This children's CD of nursery rhymes and sing-along songs set to acoustic Irish music is like Riverdance for toddlers! It encompasses the all important areas of rhyme, rhythm and repetition - so frequently the missing links for children learning to read. Courtney from California, USA says: "My 3 girls and I absolutely love this CD!! All the songs are so catchy and we love the Irish music throughout! Thanks for the great CD!" "Sing-Along songs from Glasses Island - Volume 1" was recorded by Ireland's first virtual band for children called The Speks. This six-piece band hails from a mythical island off the coast of Ireland called Glasses Island where everyone wears speks. In ancient times the island was settled by a clan of Myopians and today some people still refer to it as Myopia! Áine from Galway, Ireland says: "Our little man (only one year old) won't go to sleep without his nightly dose of The Speks! This CD is a life-saver!" Glasses Island is steeped in culture and the band members, Quince, Naymon, Tommo, Pete, Ed and Rafferty love singing and playing music for children. On this album they play fiddle, accordion, banjo, flute, tin whistle, mandola, guitar and their Irish music is magically woven through traditional nursery rhymes like Old King Cole and Humpty Dumpty. The Speks bring their music style to the rest of the world in the hope that glasses-wearing can be more fun for the little ones so sing along and sing loud!
