Recess Music has another compilation CD out as part of their Best Foot Forward series. We had the opportunity to experience and review Share! The latest addition is all about gratitude.
There are so many benefits to being grateful that I try to focus on gratitude with our kids. If one of them gets particularly cranky, or upset over something not going their way, I send them to the table with paper and pencil and have them write or draw 10 things they are grateful for. This has helped so many times to break the negative cycle of emotions and to help us bond together again.
Long story short, I was excited to have songs all about a gratitude attitude to support what I am already trying to incorporate into our every day. Overall I would give this album four stars. It has not been my favorite collection put together by Recess Music. It does have several songs that are fun and upbeat and carry a great message about gratitude. None of the songs have really caught my attention or stuck with me past the time I am listening to it. The song I really don’t get is “There’s a Pea on My Plate.” I end up skipping it every time. Brent, however, said he found it humorous.
I think individual songs would be great for starting a discussion about why we’re grateful, how we feel when we’re grateful, and what we do to show we’re grateful.And with that, we are grateful to be able to offer this CD to one BBGU reader. I have three items to giveaway this week so there will be three winners! You only have to enter once to be entered for all three items.
