The albums were digital and we burned them to CDs to be able to enjoy them in the car as well as at home.
The workbook has the words to each song in the series (all sets), and an activity page to go with that song. In the back of the book there are also lessons to implement to go with each song. The workbook helps to turn these songs into great value/character type lessons for your kids. It takes it above and beyond just the song, which is a great addition to any homeschool, family home evening or dinner talk.
The Happiness and Attitude set is filled with some of our favorites of what we received. Songs about how you CAN do things, giving kudos to others, and being good to yourself. There are two other songs on this set that I don’t really ‘get’. The first is “I don’t understand”, it’s about asking questions when you don’t understand something, but I think the song is just a bit strange. The second is called “Better Together”, and I liked the song, but I didn’t realize it was about reading books until I went to the workbook, had a very catchy tune though, which we enjoyed.
The Manners and Character set also has some really catchy tunes that we enjoyed. Our favorites were the song about being honest, saying please and treating others kindly. The other 2 songs I found a bit awkward in some ways. The first is “Quirks”, while it has some good points, I found the examples of quirks to be off…for instance ‘my best friend always burps’, I wouldn’t consider that a quirk, that’s more ill manners but, the main idea of the song was great – Everyone is different. The second song “Six Little Kids” is about perspectives, but I just didn’t get the point. My kids even were listening along saying “what??”. They thought it was more silly than anything when they were singing things like “An elephant’s a rope”, “an elephant's a hose”. I don’t feel it really made the point. In my opinion, despite your ‘perspective’ an elephant is an elephant. I see what they were trying to say, but I don’t feel this song said it.
