Disney and Hal Leonard teamed up to create an innovative Disney Learning book series that incorporates your little one’s favorite Disney characters into learning and music. These beautifully illustrated picture books don’t stop when the last page is read. Each one of these books includes online activities. You and your little one can participate in a video read-along as well as use your own voices in an audio sing-along.
Disney Learning introduced a new book for you and your little one to explore music with Moana: The Beat of Your Heart – A Musical Exploration Activity Book is a fun way to teach kids how important the beat is for any music. This story does a fun job of having kids realize the beat is all around us. Simply patting, clapping, and tapping with rhythm will have you hearing the music in no time. My kids love discovering the different sounds they can make with just using their hands and changing the tempo.
Mickey’s Found Sounds – A Musical Exploration Storybook features a fun story with Mickey and his friends using every day items to create musical instruments. Each activity is pictured and explained well so you and the kids can create your own musical instruments as well! Then go online to play the audio sing-along and you can play your new handmade instruments along with the rest of Mickey and his band!
Tangled: It’s Better When You Sing It – A Musical Exploration Storybook explores your voice. Kids will see how different their voices sounds when singing low or high, whispering, and much more. Explore this fun story with Rapunzel and her friends. This book also asks questions throughout the story which helps expand kids exploration and understanding. It creates great conversation and my kids giggle over the different ways they sounds. Tangled: It’s Better When You Sing It, truly makes reading an experience!
The Disney Learning Explore Music Series combines the fun of Disney, reading, and adventures all into one. These books were designed and created with kids ranging from 4 to 8 years of age. Explore Music books would make great holiday gifts! These books are available in both music and bookstores as well as online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
