Come right in

This track gives children time to hear and then carry out the actions.  It also uses different body parts.  This track supports concentration,

co-ordination and language acquisition.

Just suppose (Juxtapose)

Opportunities for language extension.  4 year olds would enjoy this.  It is rich with concept repetition..."back to face"



This is one of my new favourite tracks.  Children love playing with numbers and counting backwards.  Put rocket ships in the mix with a catchy beat and it will be a winner every time. 


Do like I do.

This track is rich with social concepts and promotes relationships and supports the acquisition of social skills.  It has a catchy beat and I think it would be well received by children.


The question song

Great original concept.  I have never heard a song about question words.  I love this and would buy the CD just to have this song.  Children are going to love the alliteration and walk around their centres playing with these words.

Is that it?

This will be fun to make our own actions to.  I will use this to promote imagination and support peer leadership and tutoring as children make their own actions and share these with other children.

What games shall we play.

The use of assonance and Rhyming in this track again promotes language development and acquisition among children  I believe rhyming should be used as a teaching tool more often.

“The music sounds great and I think the teachers and children will also benefit from the different tempos.”

Donna, Centre Manager, Rainbow Mangorei

“Tracks such as Shake A Shake will get children moving to the actions suggested in the lyrics”

“I like the clear melody and repetition for Jump up and Down and You’re the greatest in the world.  I believe these will be easy for the children to pick up and learn well.  Big Tick from me!

Catha Ritchie, Head Teacher, Greytown Kindergarten

The teamwork album contains a varied vocabulary.  It  introduces words such as constellation and detection (in context) presented through rhythm and rhyme. Children enjoy playing with the words and repeating these. This album is a useful tool for supporting vocabulary extension.

Deb Rewi, Centre Manager, Rainbow Inglewood

The tamariki have enjoyed this soundtrack, we have used it during play times and tidy up times with our teaching team singing along and the children singing along to the main lyrics.  Thank you for recommending your music to us, we look forward to growing our collection over time.

From the team at Community Kindy Papakura East

Kyla Hei Hei, Centre Manager

This CD gives Children the opportunity to dance, and move as various animals like giraffes, wetas, to dinosaurs--where children can stomp, jump and roar (which I think will be a favourite).
