This album takes many of the concepts (colors, numbers and the alphabet) introduced in Volumes 1 & 2 and moves onto more challenging levels. Learning is once again made enjoyable through imaginative movement activities.
Through active participation, children learn safety, vocabulary, parts of the body, forms of transportation, objects in the room, and kinds of foods. Songs teach forward-backward, inside-outside, high-low, and over-under-around.
These artful songs teach empathy toward animal life and nature and help to develop positive attitudes and feelings. This collection captures in song and story healthy attitudes toward animal life and nature.
