Patty Shukla CD Review - Wiggle It

Remember when you were a kid and you listened to Raffi non-stop... over and over and over again? Well, I have found the new Raffi. Patty Shukla is a singer and songwriter whose music is absolutely addicting for kids. My boys are addicted, my neices and nephews listen, and I am trying to spread the word. She has a fun mix of nursery-rhyme type songs and then a whole plethora of music she created... songs about superheroes and trains and pirates, songs that get you off the couch and running around the house, songs that make you dance. She's got them all.

I recently got her newest CD, Wiggle It, and LOVE it. Definitely a 5 star album. It's her fifth CD and is geared toward a younger audience, perfect for Jake and Oliver. There are classic songs, like "Mary Had a Little Lamb" and "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" and new songs, like "Wiggle It" and "Choo-Choo Train" that get Jake giggling and racing around the house every time they come on.

One thing I love about these songs is how Patty enunciates every word. I'm trying to get Jake (1 1/2 years old) to speak clearer, and hearing songs he adores and having the words be sung clearly is a wonderful thing. Another great thing is how lively and exciting the songs are. They get Jake so wired up dancing that after music time is over, he crashes. Wonderful, wonderful nap time.

Wiggle It (2013)
Go out and buy this CD now. It's available on Amazon and at Miss Patty's website and worth every penny you spend.
Oh... and if you want to listen before buying, check out Patty Shukla on Youtube. Her music has some great videos to go with them and I promise you won't be disappointed.
