It’s road-trip season! Keep the kids happy and watch the miles fly by with new (to you) tunes that are perfect for a road trip, hand-picked by VAPLD Librarian Heather Blake. Also check out our list of Audiobooks, several of our writers swear by them for great car trips with kids.
Road trips need a soundtrack. Visit the library or whatever source you have for your music and check out these fine jams to rock away the miles!
Up to Something Good by Sunshine Collective
You and your family will definitely have a good vacation with the wind in your hair and this CD blasting through the speakers! It is upbeat and fun and full of sunshine!
Heart Beats: Feel Good Songs for Families by Assorted Artists
Warning: family bonding is bound to occur when listening to this compilation CD from artists like Caspar Babypants, Joanie Leeds & the Nightlights and Laurie Berkner. It will soon be your favorite.
Parker’s Place by Parker Bent
No one will tire of these tunes by artist Parker Bent, I promise! You will laugh, sing along and maybe keep the jams playing long after the kids have zonked out from all that fun.
In a Pickle by Dre Towey
Every song on this CD is a delicious romp through new songs and fresh takes on older ones too. Yum!
Rocksteady by Josh and the Jamtones
This CD has everything – it’s a little bit reggae, a little bit big band, a little bit rock. But whatever it is, it will get your little bits up and dancing. And even if you are stuck in the car, that car ride will be hopping!
Here at the Vernon Area Public Library, we use the five early literacy practices — TALK, SING, READ, WRITE, PLAY — as the foundation for all of our storytimes. It’s never too early to start on these five activities to set the stage for reading readiness.
We offer storytimes beginning at birth, and all are welcome to stop by and visit — no library card required. But if you are a resident, you can sign up for your library card while you are here! Find our calendar of storytimes and other events.
If you would like more information about early literacy, what is happening at the library, and a printable calendar, subscribe to our quarterly Early Literacy eNewsletter.
