From the time he was born, I knew Monster was addicted to music. He has constantly had to have some sort of music to fall asleep to, and he "sings" in his own way to the music on the radio when we're in the car. I've always introduced my kids to different kinds of music, when PJ was small, he was a big fan of Andrew Lloyd Weber and could even tell you which songs were what at age 4, his favorite song was "Memory." So, when I got the opportunity to review Beautiful Creatures, I was ecstatic! I've always believed in introducing my kids to different cultures and different music.
I was contacted by Paul from Beautiful Creatures and was instantly hooked from my first listen of Imvubu The Happiest Hippo. Of course, I wanted to do a review and listen to the rest of the great music. So, I got my copy of the CD and listened to it, THREE times!! This was after Monster went to bed of course, it's when I do all my work. So, the next morning, I played it again with Monster here...he LOVED it! You can tell because he was smiling the whole time. Monster's daddy liked it too, you can tell this because he didn't ask me to turn it off like he does with all my other music. How two people with such different tastes gets along so well is beyond me...LOL!
I have to say that the song Monster sings to the most is "Lucas the Lazy Lion" ROARRRRR!! And, I really can't say I have one favorite because they're all great songs, but I do like "Mafutha", because I LOVE ELEPHANTS! Also, I must mention "Beautiful Creatures" song, it's a great song with a message to "share this planet" and preserve our planet for "future generations."
My take on "Beautiful Creatures"
I love the variety of music
The songs are quite catchy, not sure if that's a good thing because I have woken up with the songs in my head!!
The songs teach about nature and the wild animals of Africa
The songs have just the right amount of education to them!
I'm going to have to buy more of the CD's to build Monster's music library!
