For infants/toddlers - many people have used the recordings or book/recording sets as baby gifts. The 2nd side CD has music accompaniment alternated with voice-only, which is very soothing. ? Pre-school age - home daycare centers or preschools can play a story/song set for music time, Bible time or before rest time. Pre-school children can learn many of the songs. For more lengthy songs, the pre-school children can sing the refrain in response to the older children singing the verses. ? Kindergarten-first/second - some of the music might be used in the classroom, in a cherub choir, Sunday or church school. The above would be the more common uses, but there are other possibilities as well... ? The material can be used to aid in teaching reading, language or voice. ? The written music can be played by older students learning an instrument. ? Babysitters or older brothers and sisters can use it in their babysitting bag. ? Parents can use one or more of the themes to deal with certain issues. --For instance, if their child seems to be feeling very lonely and lost, they might play the 'Jesus Is My Friend' theme and talk about it together. --If their child doesn't feel like feeding the family pet or has lost a pet, it might help to play or read the 'God Loves the Animals' theme. ? Grandparents and Great grandparents often like to give the set to their grandchildren in order to pass along their faith. ? A play or presentation can be created with the stories and songs, with easier and more difficult parts being assigned according to age and ability.
