We have enjoyed Recess Monkey‘s music for several years now. So I was very excited to have the opportunity to review their new album, Deep Sea Diver, due out next Tues, June 18. This album has proven to be a great soundtrack for play, craft projects and dinner preparations. If it works for all three, it’s a winner in my book.
Elli squealed when she heard the first song’s line “I’ve got a license…to drive. And I’m only 5!” For this almost 5 year old, she was mesmerized. Then she danced enthusiastically the rest of the song.
Sammi’s response to the album was “I love it! Let’s tell the whole world I love it.”
And Scott bopped his head around while coloring, running around the kitchen with his sword and running in and our of the house. All pretty much in the length of the song “Beach Ball” (almost three minutes).
I love the ocean theme of this album. The songs make for great discussions on topics from submarines, to the beach, to ocean life. This is one we’ll definitely pull out again and again as we study the ocean this coming school year. In fact I think the song “Choral Reef” would pair nicely with this coral reef craft from Silly Eagle Books.
