Smart Tip: Listen to the song as you read through "Down at the Sea Hotel" and point to the words which helps to increase your child's' site vocabulary.

It's always nice to listen to nursery music that doesn't necessarily involve squeaky voices, that is pleasing to both parents and their kids, making singing along more enjoyable for the entire family. The Secret Mountain, with three new books each accompanied by a complimentary CD, accomplishes just that. "Down at the Sea Hotel" is a book about getting ready for "nite nite" as we say in our house. "The tuna is tired...The seahorse is sleepy...They've eaten their minnows..." and it continues the story of nigh time at the "Sea Hotel" deep in the ocean. The song, written by Greg Brown, a two-time Grammy nominee, is one this mom must admit to listening to all by herself, no kids in sight. Set to beautiful illustrations by Mireille Levert, you can read along or point to the words as you listen. The words to each song on the "Down at the Sea Hotel" CD are written in the book, perfect for reading and learning together. Others in the series include "Dream Song-Night Songs: From Belgium to Brazil" and "A Duck in New York City," a cheeky story about a duck hoping to make it big on Broadway with his ducky dance. All three books and CD's are worthwhile additions to your book collection, and none will make you cringe with "not this song!" as your son or daughter wants to hear it again and again. What other children's songs do you actually enjoy listening to?
