Now that Manini is a little over 3 years, we’re experimenting with different kinds of books and music. You know, not just rhymes but real songs with real words that mean something. So, when Daria approached me with a review request for her CDs, I jumped with excitement.
Music for Kids that Has Meaning and Purpose
Don’t get me wrong, I love singing classic and new nursery rhymes with Manini but as she’s growing I want her to experience differences in culture, learn about tolerance and absorb the immense beauty that this world has to offer. Yeah, I know she’s only 3 but one can start early, right? So, what I loved about Daria’s music for children is that it’s not all candyfloss and cuteness. It’s got meaning, depth and has the wonderful ability of exposing young children to different cultures. All from one little CD.
Toddler Music That Grown-Ups Enjoy
and like listening to it as I work. Some of the songs are so beautiful they’ll bring up that lump in the throat. Ask me how I know that!
Empowering Kids Through Music
The second CD I received is titled I Have a Dream and yes, the title derives from one of the most powerful speeches ever made. The CD includes songs in English, Spanish, Hebrew , Zulu and other languages. Amazing! All the songs are accompanied with lovely music and words that encourage a child to live his dreams , stay inspired and be empowered.
Daria’s dream and passion is to empower children across the globe, by enabling them to “explore music in a way that unlocks the amazing talent and inner beauty they naturally possess.” Winner of several awards for her CDs including Parent’s Choice Award, NAPPA Award and a Children’s Music Web Award, her music has been used in classrooms and curriculums across the world.

In fact, her website is a virtual treasure trove of fun stuff for parents, teachers and kids. She also has download links to several of her songs, words for the songs and lots more. So, do check it out!
