Early Lit Bits: Music Minute

Rockabye BabySummer is here and that can mean road trips with lots of shared time in the car. Choosing music to entertain the whole family can sometimes be difficult or down right nerve-wracking for moms and dads who can only imagine dancing purple dinosaurs when they think “kid music”!

For older kids, disputes can be avoided by checking out songs available on Freegal and loading favorites onto their personal music players. From Alvin and the Chipmunks to Wonder Pets, kids can download songs that they enjoy. Then simply plug in the headphones and each enjoys their own music choice. But for those too young to use a device, parents might enjoy giving little ones a taste of their favorite bands with our Rockabye Baby collection. Instrumental versions of AC/DC, Metallica or even the Rolling Stones can soothe frayed nerves of all ages.
