Music is a great way to help children relax and cool down from vigorous recreational activity. They need a good balance of activities during the summer vacation. Music is ideal as they will learn new words and melodies to be more receptive to music when school starts again. Children need to hear music at home and reading aloud and doing a variety of arts and crafts. The more music experience they have at home the better equipped they will be in school.The preschooler is an enthusiastic learner. They enjoy music and action. Here are two great choices for the preschooler in your family.
