Sing Along Songs|
Music is an important part of our environment, and sing along songs are a wonderful family resource. We sing along to several familiar tunes as part of our daily routine, in the shower or while watching TV and hearing a commercial jingle. Kids songs are familiar to various age groups, easy to sing, and appropriate for small children. Singing is a fun way to learn, and children love sing along songs. Who doesn’t remember the kids songs Itsy Bitsy Spider (complete with hand movements), Wheels on the Bus, This Old Man, If You’re Happy and You Know It, and of course the ABC’s Alphabet Song. Many of these sing along songs mean something about being a kid, singing with your mom at home, growing up with your family, bringing up happy times and comforting memories. For new parents, kids sing along songs are an opportunity to pass on their childhood experience to another generation.
Whether you are in the car, at a party, at a sports event, or even in the shower, familiar pop music invites you to sing along. Drivers who sing along in their car are more likely to concentrate on the road and less likely to fall asleep. The recent advent of karaoke music invites participants to sing along to their favorite songs. Even if you can’t carry a tune, you can still sing along, and the most inept singer will ultimately sound like a famous pop star.
Sing along songs, usually upbeat and encouraging, provide fun and fond memories for kids of all ages, something to bring a smile to your day.
