  1. A World of Music
    review by Kimberly on 8/16/2016

    Paired with history and art, music helps a child discover the world and the variety of music that complement the various customs, cultures and traditions. I love music time and singing and dance with my children as the learn various rhythms and sounds in the songs of the world.
