When I got the email with the subject “Trout Fishing in America” I thought, “Hmmm, this may be a stretch to connect trout fishing with the under 5 crowd. But maybe they have something cool planned for this young group.” Well, did they ever! Trout Fishing in America is a fun kindie music group (not limited to trout fishing, no ma’am!) with clever lyrics and upbeats melodies.
The title track of the album, Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers, was right up Sammi’s alley. We had fun with the tongue twisters and then that conversation morphed into jokes we know. She had just checked out a book of jokes from her school’s library so we had fun learning some new ones. I just love when songs inspire our activities!
Elli’s favorite song is “My Sister Kissed Her Boyfriend.” She has been wandering the house singing this line softly, slowly, quickly, and at the top of her lungs. It really allows her Southern drawl to shine!
From kisses to insects to “not mud” this has been a fantastically enjoyable album. I see many fun projects in our future inspired by these songs.
