Let's All Make a Circle with Meredith LeVande DVD Review and Giveaway!!

A few years ago I was privileged to review Meredith LeVande's CD What Are the Odds?  This DVD brings all those songs to life!  Meredith has a very engaging smile, voice and story telling by song.  Each video is very unique.  Meredith plays the guitar, drums and shares the stage with a wonderful group of children as well as some eye-catching scenery.  The music draws kids to interact by copying the movements of what they see on the DVD.  Kids learn so much about social skills, gross motor movements, fruits and vegetables, wheels, bubbles, silly animals,funny knock-knock jokes and more!  My kids enjoy spinning around the room and watching all the fun that is happening in each video. I can even hear them singing the songs when the DVD is not even playing.  They are very easy to catch on to and remember!   This is a great DVD to pull out for those rainy days and playdates for kids to get up, moving and being silly!

What I really enjoyed the most was the Teaching Guide attached to the cover.  Each of the songs has a great teaching point for your kids to get more enjoyment, learning and growth all while having fun and being goofy.  There are some great early learning skills attached to the songs on this DVD.  So pick it up today and start your journey of imagination and wonder!

Here is fun video trailer of the DVD.  Stay tuned for the giveaway at the end of this post!
