Do you have a little one who is finally old enough for small doses of tv time? I remember that period of life. Frankly, part of me was excited to introduce the television because I was so desperate for something that could hold Darah’s attention for 5 solid minutes (and at first, that’s how long she would watch before wandering off!). On the flip side, I wanted to make sure that what she was watching wasn’t complete and total garbage. And finding quality programming for little ones can be surprisingly difficult!
As I type this, Darah is downstairs watching a DVD that I would highly recommend to parents of toddlers and preschoolers. It is from the celebrated children’s singer Hap Palmer, and it’s called Read & Sing with Hap Palmer, and it retails for $14.95.
Basically, this DVD is a collection of songs that are brought to live with illustrations and photographs (but not with live motion). I actually prefer still images for younger kids, as it doesn’t overwhelm them as quickly. The songs are catchy and the words are provided on the page, to help with sight reading and vocabulary skills.
Darah frequently asks to watch her “singing DVD” and I feel confident that Layah will enjoy watching this when she is old enough, as well. Since the DVD is broken up into 12 songs, it is easy to pause the program and take a break from watching television after just a few minutes.
