Happy Baby, Happy Day!
Kindermusik’s Happy Baby, Happy Day! newborn gift set includes a CD, an 80-page illustrated activity book, a shaker, a storybook, a cloth scarf, and a chime ball, packaged in a purple bag with handles. The album and activity book, in combination, are a solid introduction to music; the recording includes 15 short, mostly traditional songs, such as “Mister Sun,” “Row, Row, Row Your Boat,” “Aiken Drum,” “Los Pescaditos (The Little Fishes),” and the always welcome “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” The music and vocals are all lighthearted, sprightly, and generally well-produced. The activity book includes lyrics, and baby-appropriate activities such as finger-play, peek-a- boo, and bath-time games, as well as good advice to parents on developmental stages, health and play.
