Giveaway & Review: Kids "Coconut Groove" CD [CLOSED]

Meet Nick Deysher . . . the man and the talent behind In The Nick of Time Music. Nick recently sent my 3 monkeys a copy of his most recent music cd for children titled "Coconut Groove."

This Massachusetts native is both a teacher of preschool and music. After listening to Coconut Groove, I detected influences from folk music, reggae, and even a little classic rock. I would definitely describe his songs as feel-good music. In my house, this would not be considered dance music, but it is perfect for listening to while drawing, building with Legos, and cooking a gourmet dinner in the play kitchen.

Here's what my children thought about the Coconut Groove CD . . .

1) My 5yr old son said his favorite songs on this CD were Dinosaur Song and If You Build It.

2) My 5yr old, who prefers more rock 'n' roll type music that let's him dance and lose control, thought some of the songs were too mellow.

3) My 2yr son who loves all types of music smiled and swayed from side-to-side to many of the songs. He also danced slowly in circles.

You can listen to samples from Coconut Groove on . If you are looking to add something fun to a child's Easter basket this year, this CD (as well as the MP3 download) is available for purchase on CD Baby.
