Kid's Music Series: Songs In The Shade Of The Flamboyant Tree CD and Book
Bring some new cultures to your little one's world with the beautiful Songs In The Shade of The Flamboyant Tree CD and Book. This set, released June 2012, features French Creole lullabies and nursery rhymes that will have your child gazing with wonder or the foreign tongues and indigenous instruments.
The album includes 30 songs which feature music inspired from Haiti, Guadeloupe, Martinique and Reunion Island. The album tends to lull my little ones into a trance, though I would not really categorize the songs in the "lullaby" category due to their somewhat upbeat nature. I did find that I loved listening to the songs in conjunction to the storybook, and the illustrations really helped my kids to have a better understanding of the French Creole lifestyle.
