I may not like the toys or DVDs, but I do like to bring along music and stories for the kids to listen to. I subscribe to a podcast through itunes called Storynory. There is also a website called Stroynory.com. The girls love the stories read by a British story teller named Natasha. Most of the audio stories are classics and fables, but there are also some original stories about a frog prince named Bertie and some of his pond friends
I've also stored some music on our ipod for the trip. Elizabeth Mitchel is, by far, my favorite childrens' music artist. She has a number of CDs out, my favorite being Little Bird. CLICK HERE to listen to some of this CD on Amazon.
My second favorite children's music singer is Linda Yapp. She was Grasshopper's pre-school teacher and has made at least three children's CDs. I own her CD titled For the Love of Hawaii that was nominated in 2008 for The Parent's Choice Award. CLICK HERE to listen to some of Linda's songs.
Last, but not least, a bloggy giveaway! That's right. I'm giving away a book called Bedtime Blessings: 100 Bedtime Stories & Activities for Blessing Your Child. It is the second volume published by Focus on the Family and written by John Trent. It is a sweet little book and all you have to do to get it is enter a comment, any comment, on this post. I will draw names and announce the winner next Friday. If you are the winner all you'll need to do is send me an email with your address (see the side bar) and I will send the book to you for free. Sound fun? Then comment....I'm waiting anxiously.
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend!
