Review–Groove Kid Nation: Music in Motion

image

Product Description
Music in Motion continues off of the success of the critically acclaimed first release, The Wheels on the Bus. This time around, Lee and his team of top L.A. musicians recorded an album designed to get children moving to the beat while simultaneously learning about musical concepts and instruments. 
Through groovy soul tracks, this mostly original set draws kids into the action with specific instructions on what to do from funny dances, to playing air guitar, to responding to musical cues, to simply nodding their heads to the beat. 
An entirely new band of feline characters known as the Kool Katz guide the fun, and the enclosed 10-page booklet features colorful illustrations of each Kool Kat playing their own instrument.
Ten percent of the wholesale price of Music In Motion will be donated to CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting poverty.

My kids *love* music. Not an waking hour goes by where there’s not some kind of music, either coming a CD, Pandora, or one of them just making noise. When I saw the opportunity to review a kid’s CD, I jumped at the chance. It’s so hard to find good kids music among all the options available. This CD of kids songs comes from Groove Kids Nation, which is an educational children's music label whose goal is to introduce toddlers to the sound of real musical instruments.

Unfortunately, I would not classify this one as a good find. My kids really didn’t care for it. It sounded too much like adult music to them and too much like kids music to me. I wonder, however, if slightly older kids would enjoy it more. It does have a good sound to it, very jazzy.

The length of each song and the length of the CD was good. The overall composition was enjoyable as well. What can I say? If my kids don’t like it, we’re not going to listen to it. I’m going to shelve it for awhile and hopefully they’ll like it more at a later time…
