I had the pleasure of reviewing Dino O’Dell and the T-rex All-Stars new CD “Outer Space” and let me tell you IT IS FUN! My four-year-old LOVED it! He kept asking when we were going to meet Dino! There are 12 songs on the CD with the majority being around 3-1/2 minutes long. The tunes are catchy and the words are full of things to learn (for the most part). Some of what you will hear are: Polka, Rap, Reggae, South African Township Jive, Disco and Funk.
The CD starts with a song about waking up and ends with a song about going to sleep…VERY interesting CD – I’ve never heard anything like it. We really enjoy it. I do have to tell you that one of our FAVORITE songs on this CD is less than a minute long and is called, “Sugar Breakfast Cereal” – it is HILARIOUS! 🙂

We have a variety of musical styles playing in the background while we go about our day (well, except for when we are doing school work). We just got a set of Boomwhackers to use too. My husband was a music major in college, believe me, we have a lot of music in our home.

Sorry, hit the wrong button. We listen to music in the van when we are out and about.
We listen to music in the car or while cleaning the house. 🙂

We don’t include enough music in our days, for learning, or pleasure. I have several children who use music on their mp3 players to help them focus on their schoolwork, but that’s the best we manage.
We listen in the car – we live at least 30 minutes away from just about everything, so we have lots of time for it! We’ve learned a lot from songs – science and history mostly.
Cheryl Powell says
We listen in the car because it’s atleast 15 min to go anywhere LOL
We listen to music all day long pretty much. I used to sleep with it on till I met my husband 😉 Any songs that incorporate learning are always welcomed around here. My kids sometimes make their own tunes to help remember things they are learning. This CD sounds fun!
We listen during breakfast and at quiet time.
I grew up listening to music of all types…and we listen to everything!
