What colour is your t shirt Review



Like all little girls my girls love 'shaking their thang' the minute music with a catchy beat comes into ear shot, whether we are at home or out, in the street! And YES they have done that!
So when the lovely people over at Monkey and Bo asked me if i would like them to review a fabulous new collection of children's songs i jumped at the chance, i mean who doesn't love watching mini people hit the dance floor!

So heres a little background on the CD we where sent.

What Colour is your t-shirt?
Music for the under 6's- a collection of 10 original songs for children written and performed by Nick Cope.

The former lead singer of the Oxford band The Candyskins has returned to the music industry and now devotes his time to writing and performing engaging folk-based songs for children.

Nick writes songs about rings that really matter to little ones; jumping in the mud, colours, counting along with monkeys and exploring their surroundings. There's lots of chance for kids to join in!

'What colour is your t-shirt?' is an enjoyable collection of songs the will be loved by both children and their parents.

Now I'm not one for taking the word for all press releases, but this CD does really hit the spot! Its a refreshing take on children's song CD's, believe me we have hundreds and i really didn't feel like my ears would bleed if i sat and listened to it all.
Nick has a lovely voice and the kids really took to it straight away, getting in their and having a good old boogie!
Emma took a particular liking to 'As i lie here in my bed'. She has slight OCD when it comes to brushing her teeth and this really seemed to tickle her.
All the songs where lovely to listen to and the lovely guitar accompaniment was a refreshing change. I would happily recommend this for anyone going on regular car journeys, i can see myself singing along in no time!

Nick now runs popular music and movement sessions weekly for early years in Oxford and he is currently putting together a songbook to accompany the lyrics on his first CD and more. Creating a children's book that is not only a companion to the CD but will also be able to stand alone to read and enjoyed by both parents and children.

He is also putting the finishing touches to his next CD which will include many of his other popular songs such as ' Think of an animal' 'Let's take a walk and 'My socks'.
