The Music Game

Do you ever listen to instrumental/classical music with your kids? I’m a big fan of Andrew Bird, whose music conjures up all sorts of mysteries and beauty, particularly of the natural world. This song is one of Emil’s favorites. He listens intently and calls it the “tiptoe mouse” song, because the plucking of the strings sound to him like a mouse tiptoeing around. I love to guess what animals represent what parts of the song. Let your child listen with you and see if you can identify the mouse, hummingbird, bumblebee, and spider we picture throughout this song. It’s such fun to see what they imagine!
