If you have turned on Disney Junior lately, you have probably seen the fun and cool Genevieve Goings singing or dancing across the TV screen. My kids love her and have watched her on "Choo Choo Soul with Genevieve" for a few years now. Whether she is singing a Disney classic from Mary Poppins or singing about "Animals on the Farm", she puts a funky and soulful spin on all the songs.
Besides having a great voice ... so important to a parent who has to listen to hours and hours of children's entertainment stars, Genevieve's songs are always catchy and have a toe tapping beat that gets my daughter up and grooving to the music.
Now this singer/songwriter is unveiling a new project, she just released the first single from her upcoming solo album, "Do You Know" called "My Telephone Number is..." on April 22nd. The full album is coming June 3rd, 2014.
Teaching preschool FUN-damentals
This may be her first solo album, but this entertainer has been a fixture in children's entertainment for the past 10 years. This new album will help preschoolers learn their phone number, tell time, and even explore more personal topics such as hygiene and potty training. These inspiring and educational songs will help both parents and teachers as kids sing and dance along.
I watched the video for "My Telephone Numer is" and having taught EFL to young children in Japan, I know this song will be a great teaching tool for many. My daughter doesn't have our phone number memorizes yet, but this is a great place to start making learning fun.
"Doot, doot, doot", anyone?
