It is easy to understand why Vered's Good Morning My Love waschosen by kids' music superstar Laurie Berkner as one of her top album picks of the year in USA Today. Vered has taken children's music to a whole new level by making a CD that is first and foremost for the parent. She has not only created a collection of enchanting songs that are perfect to accompany the earliest years, she has touched the heartstring of what parenting is all about.
What is perhaps even more impressive is that the CD's content is solidly grounded in infant psychology, music therapy, and attachment theory.
Beyond being a composer, performer and mother of two young sons,Vered is a music therapist who has pursued advanced studies in clinical psychology and has put her extensive training to good use, leading more than fifty parent/baby workshops each year. For ten years she devoted days to her studies and clinical practice, while singing by night. Her beautiful voice has been compared to Norah Jones.
Good Morning My Love celebrates parenting and early childhood in a profound way that assists parents in connecting and communicating with their babies. Through her songs, Vered helps parents become aware of ways they can use music to establish routines, organize playtime/learning time, soothe, and build security.
The songs on Good Morning My Love are ordered more or less chronologically according to a baby's development and are composed with both novice and experienced parents in mind. Throughout Good Morning My Love, the music illuminates emotions of both baby and parent during the first years of parenting.
GOOD MORNING MY LOVE TRACK LIST:
Good Morning My Love
Hands in My Mouth
When You Smile
Don't Leave Me
Good Morning My Love is a nice twist to the traditional lullaby music for infants and toddlers. It has delightful lyrics and the melodies are very relaxing. Perfect for night time bonding with your little one, or helping them to fall asleep at nap/night time.
My favorite songs were When You Smile, Bathtime and New Words. Although my children are older, we have used it for daily quiet time and both my girls love the CD.
Its a great way to see the philosophy of attachment parenting put into music and encouraged.
Good Morning Love would be a perfect gift for a Baby Shower or for the upcoming Christmas season.
I highly recommend this CD and give it a huge thumbs up.
BUY IT: Good Morning My Love in its original version is available online at www.veredmusic.com, amazon.com, and iTunes. The new version will be available at these outlets on October 23.
