SING TO YOUR BABY® is designed to empower parents to be the first and most important voice their baby can identify with, regardless of singing talent and experience. Anyone can sing to a baby, and even those who are shy about their singing will build confidence singing along with the recording. Each song is presented in two different keys, making it easy for people of all vocal ranges to join in. Everyone in a new baby's circle—parents, grandparents, caregivers, aunts, uncles and siblings—will enjoy this experience, creating bonds and memories that will last a lifetime.
"Cathy & Marcy have, once again, enriched the world of children's music. Here, they begin at the beginning, expertly guiding new parents to sing to their infants as a way to lovingly connect and teach via song."
- Claire S. Green, President, Parents' Choice Foundation
"Cathy & Marcy, two of our most cherished family musicians, have done it again. Communicating with our children is critical to their learning and development. With their usual creativity and style, and consistent with their emphasis on sound principles of early childhood education, they provide parents and caregivers with important information and resources to help them to connect and meaningfully interact with their baby through song. SING TO YOUR BABY® will bring joy to both you and your baby."
-Mark R. Ginsberg, Dean of the College of Education & Human Development, George Mason University
"Music is one of the most powerful tools for reaching out to young children. As an educator and grandparent, I applaud SING TO YOUR BABY® as a joyful collection of song to sing to form positive relationships with babies. The melodies, rhythms, and accompanying activities provide a fun and loving way to express important messages for all babies. I highly recommend this for all family members."
- Linda Shevitz, Educational Equity Specialist, Maryland State Department of Education
"Using SING TO YOUR BABY® has been really fun. When it's just me and my baby, I sound as good as Barbra Streisand!"
- Kim Garey, new mom
