We were cranking these tunes in the car the other day and it made me remember what a lifesaver they were a few years ago.
Our dear little M passionately HATED being in the car. Between the ages of 4 months until she was almost 2, every car ride--even just the 10 minute drive to the grocery store--was filled with a lot of screaming. It was NOT fun. Trying to find ways to avoid the fits of screams or ways to quickly diffuse them tested every ounce of patience I had. Definitely a challenging time.
Anyway, one day we tried a Veggie Tales CD and she was hooked. Out of all of the children's music that we had, listening to singing vegetables completely captivated her. :)
Consequently we have quite a few Veggie Tales CD's. To name a few...
On the Road with Bob and Larry --where I learned the lyrics to Bicycle Made for Two
Christian Hit Music --Kind of funny to hear Mr. Lunt singing I Was Made to Love
Bob and Larry's Toddler Songs --I must point out the version of the Wheels on the Bus on this CD is different from the version on the On the Road CD and this caused M no small amount of concern. ;)
One of our favorites is Veggie Tales Worship Songs with Matt Redman. M was in love with Matt Redman--she always wanted to hear the "Matt" songs (maybe it's his accent). :)
