Contemporary children’s music is not something I’m so familiar with, when it comes to children’s music I tend to think of old songs. So it was a happy moment when I stumbled upon ‘When I Look Into The Night Sky’ by Lori Henriques via Zooglobble . It seems to have been released just now.
We enjoyed this beautiful song and a very sweet music video by Joel Henriques from Made by Joel. Wonderful brother and sister! Visit Made by Joel to enjoy the music video. There is a coloring sheet and tutorial for creating your own night sky theater as seen in the video (above). The song has a calming, dreamy, floating-in-space like mood based on ‘St. John’s Infirmary’ and when children get to learn about the universe and grow to develop those curious wonderful feelings about it, they will completely relate to the lyrics.
For lots more sophisticated music for children, check out Lori Henrique’s site. We’ll be waiting for her new album!
And a couple more things to try together:
