Miss Carole's infectious enthusiasm makes kids and grown-ups sing, dance and do along with her as she sings through the whole year: 2 songs for each month plus a sweet Hello and Goodbye Rap. A must-have CD for kids and those who care for them.

Album Notes
2004 Parents' Choice Award Winner for this CD, and now Best Recording for young children AND Best Song - "Black Bat Farm" from the Children's Music Web!
Carole Peterson has been the Pied Piper of children's music in Chicago for the past 15 years. Her concerts have everyone singing, jumping and wiggling...and smiling til it hurts! Her clean sound and age-appropriate tempos are easily understood by even the smallest child, encouraging everyone to sing along and dance along.
"Miss Carole" speaks directly to the kids - and we hear the kids talk back to her! A pre-school teacher writes: "When you sing, magic happens with my class! Your directions are easy to follow, your voice is so clear - the kids always sing with you. Their favorite is "The Black Bat Farm" - it's spooky without being scary. Thank you for H.U.M." A music teacher agrees, "The orchestrations are creative and engaging without being too complex for young listeners. The singing parts are in just the right range for young singers. The children never get bored, as each new song is a completely new sound and activity. And the songs do not treat the children like babies - kids know this is for them!"
Carole's study of current brain research shows in the educational values reflected in her music. Carole says, "All styles of learners benefit from music exposure - add movement and they retain even more."
Be a pirate, float a snowflake, quack and waddle like ducks in the rain. This recording is fun for the whole family! Lyrics and prop-list included!

A must for all preschool teachers.
What a great and fun CD. The kids love the PIRATE SONG.
ALLIGATOR PIE a great chant and transation song. Kids love their ALLIGATOR PIE. The whole CD is another must for preschool teachers collections.

Steve Blunt

I've been teaching music for preschool-kindergarten classes for over 5 years. This CD is the single most useful resource I've come across during that time. For each season of the year, there are songs kids happily learn and repeatedly request. All teachers will enjoy learning and sharing these songs.

Nancy Davis

This CD has just what the title says - Highly Usable Music
I love this CD. The songs are great, engaging and fun. I am a preschool music teacher and am always looking for songs to teach. I have used several of the songs on this CD in my classes and the kids love them... plus they are fun for me to sing with them!

Jonette Burk "Emary's Mom"

A must have for moms and teachers!
HUM is better for home or school so that children can use props. We are using this CD in the car because we like the tunes. The songs inspire many fun conversations with my imaginative 3 year old.

Dawn DiCarlo

H.U.M. is the best CD I have in my collection. My preschool kids absolutely love it. We have so much fun with Black Bat Farm. I purchased some bat rings and we fly them around and my class enjoys shouting "Boo" Perfect CD for all seasons. A must have!! I would highly recommend to any Pre-K and Kindergarten teacher.

Lisa Krueger

We love this CD!
My daughter and I enjoy singing along with Carole. The lyrics and melodies are easy to remember and it's fun to dance or pantomime.

Anna Cech

Great CD!
I love this CD! Love the seasonal aspect and the artist's voice is upbeat and entertaining! I use the CD almost daily in my preschool classroom and "I'm a Little Snowman" song is being sung by our preschool in our winter concert.

Shirl Rogers

Many favorite songs are on this CD
We use this CD in our preschool and love The Mitten Song, Black Bat Farm, and many others. When one of our children was very sick, we bought the CD for them to listen to at home. This is one of our favorite CDs that is used over and over in music and movement class.

My daughter checked this CD out of the Ballard library in Seattle. She (a former grade school teacher)and our 5 yr old grand daughter enjoyed it so much that
they asked me (gammy) to buy one for them and send it to their home away from home in Spain. It should arrive any day now!
