An original compilation of delightful songs for kids
The must-have album for kids follows hot on the heels of the successful
Under African Skies (an album of traditional African stories set to music), comes Singalong Kidz also crafted by renowned singer/songwriter Wendy Oldfield.
This very special collection of original children's songs was written by Oldfield for her own children to provide enjoyment, entertainment and variation from their traditional children's fare. They have been tried, tested and approved by nursery school children nationwide!
Written for the children between the ages 0-5 years of age who are singing as part of their language development and as a social game, topics like animals, nature and of course...mud, can easily be related to by African children and children around the world.
“I’m always inspired to write children's songs as I am a mother, songwriter and a singer. There are just not enough fresh, original and interesting children's songs. We seem to get replays of all the old traditional songs which sometimes have very little to do with what our children can identify with," explains Wendy. So, she "tested" her kids to identify which songs grabbed their attention, which ones they had the most fun with and which ones they started singing themselves. Then the next step was to take them to a nursery school to gauge a wider reaction. Wendy was thrilled to discover that her songs were a resounding success wherever she played them.
Singalong Kidz was the prestigious 2009 SAMA (South African Music Award) winner for the Best English Kiddies Album.
