There Is a Reason for Rhymes!
Rhymes are one of the most enjoyable ways to give our children a rich and robust vocabulary. Not only that, rhymes help our brains recall words and facts, a perfect workout for developing brains. And because actions, movement, or dances are associated with children's rhymes and songs, your child's gross motor skills will flourish!

180 Engaging Songs, Fingerplays, Rhymes, and Games
The Music Box uses songs, rhymes, finger plays, and movement to invite young children into music, language, and imaginary play. This collection of 180 engaging songs, finger plays, rhymes, and games is the perfect resource for homeschooling parents. Inside the sturdy hinged box are laminated cards with the words, instructions, music and chords, and delightful illustrations for each song or rhyme. Organize the Music Box cards the way you want: by subject, alphabetically, or numerically with the included tab cards.

A Bright Spot in Your Toddler's Education
Once you understand the importance of songs, rhymes, and finger plays to your child's education, you'll realize the handful you know are sorely inadequate for the task. The Music Box's wealth of options will make this part of your toddler's education fresh and enjoyable. Do you like the words of a song, but are you unfamiliar with the tune? The Music Box also includes a list of high quality recordings available online, so you can listen to most songs before teaching them. As parents, we want to give our children every opportunity to excel. The Music Box not only makes it easy, but fun as well.
In the Music Box you will find:
  • Developmentally appropriate material
  • All words, instructions, music, and chords
  • An index to help you find songs for a chosen theme
  • Planning suggestions for singing with children in groups
  • Extra Cards to add your own songs to the collection

    Also Included is mp3 location guide!

    Reviews from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team:

    "... I find the card presentation to be especially guitar-friendly, with clear print and no worries about keeping a book open to a particular page. There are extra cards included in the back of the box, so that you can add any favorites that arenít included. My kids ADORE The Music Box. I have actually even hidden it once or twice, they love it that much..."

    Maybe for groups... May 9, 2013
    Reviewer: MomDENL  
    I would not recommend this product to just have at home to teach your little ones songs and rhymes - it definitely is not very effective for that. Rather get CD's from the library and use your own imagination on moves etc. This product could probably be useful if you are planning to host music classes or get-togethers. I am disappointed I spent the money.

    Almost overwhelming! January 15, 2013
    Reviewer: Mama to 5  
    There are so many songs that I almost don't know where to start! Thankfully there is an instruction/tip sheet for how to put together a "lesson" for your kids. Suggestions for what kinds of songs to start with, and end with, etc. I love that the cards have music on them so even I, a novice piano player, can plink out the notes for my kids to sing along with. I wish I implemented it more!

    An endless box of fun and learning June 1, 2012
    Reviewer: C Arthur  
    I bought this product for my son when he was two. We decided to homeschool him starting at the preschool level and I was finding it difficult to locate a good variety of rhymes, songs and fingerplays. After many books that were falling short of my expectations we found "The Music Box".Timberdoodle nailed it by offering such a great product! This collection has exceeded my expectations and is jam packed with fun. It is well organized, I love the divider tabs.Each week we will pull one or two cards out to focus on, I tie them to the weather or upcoming holiday/event. If your older child is able to play an instrument the written chords are great as they can practice the music while the younger child can learn the words to the song.
