ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With her crystal clear voice that sounds like a bird in flight, Bollinger gives us old favorites straight-up the way we expect them, then dishes up unique arrangements and melodic, memorable originals that expose children to new words, sounds, instruments and musical styles. There's a saucy rendition of "Patty Cake," with a sassy, jazzy swing. African log drums thunder through "Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed." The men's acappella group, Hullabahoos, from the University of Virginia, accompany Bollinger on "The Muffin man." An Irish fiddle lilts through the original "Uh Oh," and a dreamy calypso rhythm makes singing, "Please and Thank You," anything but ordinary. Cathy Bollinger is no run-of-the-mill singer-songwriter.

She's a trained music therapist and developed Toddlin' Tunes so children would have some fun, engaging songs to sing as they grow from infants listening to lullabies into toddlers getting active and singing along. Thanks to Bollinger's special magic, the music and songs on Toddlin' Tunes intentionally repeat a toddler's linguistic skills and reinforce appropriate developmental steps and concepts. She skillfully uses the classics and classic originals to count to ten, do some ABCs, learn a little French and Spanish, scout around for specific colors, imitate animals, clap hands and practice taking turns-politely. Although Toddlin' Tunes is designed for toddlers, Bollinger has gently woven in plenty of first words and simple sounds so even the littlest singer isn't left behind. And because children love children, their voices shine through on Bollinger's sixth CD. Toddlin' Tunes will turn any dreary car ride into a rolling sing-along filled with ABCs, simple sounds, numbers, letters, colors, animals and downright great music. Bollinger also introduces a unforgettable new anthem,"On the Day You Were Born," that will make each child feel special and each mother remember. Before you know it, you'll be giggling and dancing and singing along-and so will your child. Cha-cha-cha!
