A few month's ago I bought the newest Adele CD. The first time I popped it in the CD player in the car, my 2 year listened to Rolling in the Deep and immediately said "AGAIN!" I was thrilled; what good musical taste my son had.
But then he kept saying "again" and as talented as Adele is after the bazillionth time through Rolling in the Deep I was going a little cuckoo!
So when I received Laura Doherty's new CD, Shining Like A Star, I was only cautiously optimistic. We'd tried introducing our little man to new music since he "met" Adele, but with no luck. But I held my breath, put on Ms. Doherty's CD and waited for "More Adele, mama!"
And it didn't come!
We listened to the whole CD and then we listened again. And then he started asking for specific songs. His faves are the "tomato song" (really called Vegetable Party), "snake Jake" (Jake the Snake) and "popcorn" (really called....well...Popcorn).
We have sung, we've danced and we are happy, because not only is this great kid's music, but it has been really nice for me too! I love Ms. Doherty's folky voice and her lyrics are so catchy that my 2 year has memorized several of the songs! In fact, we often hear him singing himself to sleep with one of her songs.
This is our first Laura Doherty CD, but it certainly won't be our last!
Oh, and Adele? It was nice knowing you.
Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this CD, but there was no expectation of a review and as always, all opinions are my own.
Have your say
