Thanks to the US Family Guide, we were introduced to The Juno Company! We received The Day The Music Stopped DVD to review. Bunny presses the big red button on Murphy’s Shush Machine, and accidently silences the town of Harmonia Springs. Juno realizes that, in order to bring life back to the town, she and her friends have to create their own music through melody, harmony, rhythm and friendship.
I love how this DVD adds so much information on music, the dvd was too young for my children but I gave it to my friends grandchild and he LOVED it, you should have seen him dance. It had some great tunes and beautiful scenes in it. The story was very cute and also included activities that the child could do like find the picture like I spy.
Our goal at The Juno Company is to inspire a love for beautiful music. That being said, there is a significant amount of research that suggests early exposure to music has many benefits. For example, music skills were found to correlate significantly with both phonological awareness and reading development in preschool children. In addition, music has been shown to play a significant role in language and cognitive development. For example, you might notice that a toddler can only speak in two or three word phrases but has the ability to sing long phrases of familiar songs. We feel it is very important to expose children to music.
If you have a preschooler that LOVES music you have to try Juno!
Thanks to Juno for supplying the dvd and bag for my honest review!
