About the DVD
Award-winning children’s musician and public television star Meredith LeVandehas announced the July 1 release of her second children’s music DVD: Monkey Monkey Music: Let’s All Make a Circle (Monkey Monkey Music, $19.99, run time 45 minutes, for ages 2-5).

Let’s All Make A Circle is the highly anticipated follow-up to Meredith LeVande’s award-winning first DVD, and brings to life songs from her acclaimed CD collections through a uniquely creative set of dynamic, imaginative music videos. These 15 colorful, high-energy videos construct a series of playful worlds full of children and animated characters, popping bubbles, telling silly knock-knock jokes, springing up in gardens, spinning circles, and much more. It’s all made to get kids moving and learning as they dance, shake, and sing along.

On Let’s All Make A Circle, Meredith LeVande combines bright vocals, smart lyrics, and whimsical videos to offer a fresh take on children’s music – one that’s wholesome, fun, and designed entirely with the child in mind. That doesn’t mean parents won’t find themselves dancing and singing along! But with Meredith’s music, it’s truly all about the kids.Let’s All Make A Circle engages and entertains them at every turn, with kid-friendly, kid-appropriate themes and an emphasis on child growth and development. The inside album cover also includes recommended activities to help parents assist children in key areas of early learning as they experience each song.

Children everywhere already know and love Meredith LeVande as a public television star. She is one of the few children’s artists in the country who is regularly seen on TV, with an established presence on hundreds of PBS member stations airing across the country on broadcast, cable, and satellite TV. Viewers from coast to coast can catch Monkey Monkey Music – often multiple times per day – alongside such favorite shows as Thomas the Tank Engine, Curious George, Sesame Street, and others on stations like WETA Kids (Washington DC), Kids 13 (NY/NJ/PA), NJTV, Idaho Public Television, KCET (Los Angeles), and many more.

My Take on the DVD
My girls have been a fan of this group for some time and they were excited to see that a DVD was now out as they had only listened to the music in the past. On this DVD you will definitely be seeing your kids get on their feet and start boogieing around the living room if my youngest is any indication (my oldest did watch and enjoyed it, but is almost 9 so a bit old for the dancing I guess). 

The music on this DVD is contagious and will get in your brain. I found myself humming one of the tunes from the DVD unconsciously during the day and my youngest was singing a few of the songs after the first time hearing them.

All-in-all mix in some silliness with great lyrics and music and you get a great DVD chock full of fun! I encourage all families to check this out today!
