My 5-1/2 year old likes listening to quiet music while she falls asleep. Unfortunately, we only have a couple of lullaby-like CD's and they are not great. I was thinking of getting her 1 or 2 new CD's for Christmas. Any suggestions?
Bedtime music for a 5 year old
It's old, but I kinda like http://www.amazon.com/Return-Pooh-Corner-Kenny-Loggins/dp/B0000029FW Pooh corner for relaxing.
I absolutely LOVE this one. Various multinational artists and songs. It was a baby shower gift, so we've been listening to it since my son was a baby. I've never grown tired of it and it's sooo peaceful and pretty.
Edited to add:
I haven't heard this one, but the reviews sound great. Just ordered it from my library. :)
Thanks for the suggestions. I looked up the Starry Night one and unfortunately, I couldn't find it available from a Canada dealer so I went with one that was recommended by people that liked that one. I will need to check out Elizabeth Mitchell too. I found a Puff the Magic Dragon CD kicking around yesterday and she liked falling asleep to that one last night.
A good variety of songs, very soothing; I listen to this one myself sometimes!
We've listened to it every night for months and I never get sick of it. I would also recommend Elizabeth Mitchell.
DD is very calmed by Angel Bear Yoga which is not so much music but very calming bedtime stories with good visualization exercises.
