I’ve got a Teddybear

We followed up Rickety rickety rocking horse, with this great song by Julie Wylie from New Zealand.

Children start by dancing with their teddybear on their head, and then teddy does a great little jump!

Teddies go on each shoulder, and behind their back and pop out with a lovely BOO!  The music is fun with a good sense of beat.

This song is from Julie’s latest CD, Magical Musical Play.  I really find Julie’s work so appropriate for young children, and very enjoyable for all.  Even the big play partners were enjoying it.  The bears all went to bed with Rock a bye Baby.  I said who knows that song, of course Baby SOH did, because I have sung it to her since she was a baby.

The vocals are clear too in the teddybear song.  I know Baby SOH enjoyed it, and we had it on at bathtime as well, and she was grooving in the bath.  I had it on so I could learn the words of the other songs as well. 

We cant wait to do it again next week!  love from Nannyjay




About nannyjay

I am an early childhood music specialist, with a passion for music, music for singing, music for children, classical music, contemporary, good quality folk recordings, moving to music that comes from a feeling within. Having recently become a grandmother, the months are flying past too quickly!! I have decided that I would like to record the musical journey Baby SOH and I will take together. Music enhances my own life, and I have seen the contribution music makes to family lives, and children's lives from their youngest days. I am also interested in the contribution music makes to family relationships. I love to sing myself, and so the Kodaly philosophy of music education sits very well with me. Zoltan Kodaly was a Hungarian music educator and composer, and believed that singing is the foundation for all music education. I will soon be attending the early childhood music seminar of the International Society of Music Educators in Beijing, China, which is very exciting. People from the world over meet to share the latest research in music for children 0 - 8 years. So the journey begins.
