I wanted to tell you about our favorite podcast. It's from the CBeebies - a BBC radio station for small kids. You can listen to them online or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
Each of the 30 minute podcast includes a song, a rhyme, silly jokes, "count out loud" game, and an action game like "musical statues" or "follow-me". We've been really enjoying listening to the CBeebies in the car and dancing to the CBeebies beat.
Little N. learned the silly ending to the "row your boat" and she even wants to tell it to her friends and teachers at school (she does not like to be in the spotlight, so this IS a big deal). It goes like this:
Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream.
If you see a crocodile, don't forget to scream AAAAAAAAAAA!
I don't know, and could not find, any online or radio shows for small kids here in US that are fun, educational, simple and appropriate for preschoolers. So, if you're reading this and you live in UK, know that we envy you. Because you have some really good stuff.
