We’ve been sent a copy of The Land of Sometimes to review, The Land of Sometimes is a CD which combines a story and songs aimed for children 2+. It tells the story of twins Elise and Alfie as they go on a journey to the Land of Sometimes.
“Over the ocean, far away, there is a magical place called ‘The Land Of Sometimes’ where four seasons pass within one day, and everyone who lives there has a song…”
“As the story unfolds, children all over the world will be enchanted by this collection of deliciously eccentric characters and their original songs. Catchy, melodic, somethimes hilarious – ranging from reggae to disco, Irish folk, poetry, New Orleans jazz and just simply beautiful tunes, these songs have a universal appeal and are a mesmerising introduction for children of all ages to the eternal power of music and story telling”
I originally put this on to play to myself before letting MissB listen to it. It really is great to listen to. I love the story telling element in between each song and the songs are varied and enchanting. I particularly love The Ballad of The River Slouch Sling and Mr Smaller Than Smaller Than Smaller Than Small Thing.
I’m not usually a huge fan of childrens’ music (let’s face it what parent is?) but this is actually quite easy to listen to and draws you into the story too. MissB who doesn’t have the greatest concentration span in the world (well she is only 2!) did like listening to the CD, I’ve been putting it on in the car whilst driving around and it makes her smile (after a couple of plays I end up singing along to the songs which MissB finds hysterical ) MissB loves The Chant of The Chameleon Catcher
Pop over to The Land of Sometimes website and meet the characters and listen to clips of some of the songs. The Land of Sometimes CD Booklet package can be bought on Amazon for £10.97. The CD case is in the form of a booklet with beautifully illustrated images of the characters and songs.
