I was sent the following email:
After seeing this video, I wondered if I could offer you something to make car journeys less hellish? (I'm listening.... go on....)
I think your son and daughter are the right age to really enjoy The Land of Sometimes CD, and importantly as a parent, it's not like other kid's music CDs. It won't drive you bonkers like 2 hours of nursery rhymes will.
I clicked the link to their website and at that moment, my 3 yo daughter walked in. She was seriously excited. So, being Mother of the Year and all that, I accepted the offer.
And I'm glad.
It's true - The Land of Sometimes is not like other kids CDs. It's like your kids having access to a mini orchestra... a mini orchestra where you control the volume, I hasten to add. It's a wonderful introduction to different styles of music, from disco and jazz to reggae. The story is lovely, the voices are perfect and the songs catchy. The whole thing is beautifully done. It also comes with a wonderful little picturebook and this is how my daughter, who is now a huge fan, listens to it... with the book on her lap.
There is a downside though. At FIVE O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING she comes into our room. "Let's listen to The Land of Sometimes!"
Ummmm.... let me think.... no.
You can buy the CD directly from their website, which is www.thelandofsometimes.com. They are also on Twitter @landofsometimes.
I have a copy to give away to someone very lucky. To enter, all you have to do is like the Mums Away UK Facebook page: www.facebook.com/MumsAwayUK. Can it be any easier?? No. I think not. The winner will be drawn at random on Friday. Good luck!
