Hi my name is Harriet! I am Creative Director at Boogie Mites UK and I wrote the songs on this album. This collection of songs was put together with input from UK Early Years Education Specialists. The aim was to create a CD of songs that families can enjoy together AND that support the development of speaking and listening skills. Here's what some of our fans are saying:
The songs are catchy I often find myself humming the tunes. Children love the songs and join in singing, clapping. We have progressed on to making our own words for Chocolate Cake and sing it when we are lining up at lunchtime. If you haven’t boogied, give it a go! (Sandra Manktelow, Morelands Primary School, Waterlooville, Hampshire, UK)
The CD is on in the car so it encourages my son to sing to the older children which help him with speech and language and general interaction. (Mum, Barnet, London)
My child enjoys listening, singing and doing the actions to the CD (Mum, Sharps Copse Infant School, Hampshire, UK)
The children in our pre-school setting are benefiting immensely with the wide range of music and songs on the CD and which the children and adults love, joining in with great enthusiasm and the content of the music fully engages the children. If you have not heard of Boogie Mites then I strongly recommend you give them a try.

If you want to start off with one or two songs, try Clap Clap Clap (action song), Shakey Shakey (percussion song) and 5 Litttle Fish (a rhyming story song). If you go to You Tube and search Boogie Mites you can watch videos for all of these songs plus a video that shows you how to make a shaker. (That's me in the videos!)
HAVE FUN AND LET US KNOW HOW YOU USE THE SONGS ON THIS ALBUM!
