Music Review & Giveaway: La Bella Stella

La Bella Stella, fifth in the “Celebrate Earth series” by award-winning company Recess Music is a great earth friendly collection of songs to teach children about the environment. This CD is out just in time to celebrate Earth Day 2012 and I’m excited about using it with my children during our homeschooling time.

Found on La Bella Stella are  songs covering lots of great information about the solar system, galaxy, planets, gravity, the dark and more that are sure to delight any listener. The songs are mellow and feature styles such as percussion, country, strings, jazz, to name just a few. The tracks all meld wonderfully together and feature well know children’s artist such as Rocknoceros, Charity and the JAMband, and AudraRox.

One of our favorite songs on this CD is “I Love the Dark”. This song is great to share with children about not being afraid but to embrace it in all it’s beauty of listening to crickets, being mesmerized by the fireflies, admiring the twinkling starts, and to enjoy the light of the moon. It teaches children to be more curious and aware with the world in dark around them. I like this song very much and all of the others on La Bella Stella.

La Bella Stella is the perfect collection to listen to at anytime but my daughter specifically likes to listen to it at night before she goes to sleep. It’s a great mood setter as she drifts off to sleep, I believe. This CD’s total runtime is 41 minutes featuring 15 tracks, and best suited for children age 4-11 years old.

A portion of the proceeds from “La Bella Stella” will benefit the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center in Concord, New Hampshire, which is dedicated to educating learners of all ages by actively engaging them in the exploration of astronomy, aviation, Earth and space science.
