Shushybye Review & Giveaway

"It's bedtime boys."
"NOOOOO!!!" Let the crying begin!

That's how bedtime starts every night at my house! They DO NOT like the word 'bedtime'. I believe they think if they go to sleep, they are going to miss something very important. Which is never the case. So, when I got the chance to review Shushybye: Sleepover Surprise and Close Your Eyes CD, I was very intrigued and excited!

My boys and I enjoy reading together. The only problem is, even though I use different voice, they get tired of hearing the same voice. With Shushybye, they get to hear a lot of different voices, and I still get to be there and share that time with them! Last night, we popped the book CD into the player and cuddled up on the couch with the book. Well, that is until the music started playing and they got up to dance! Once the reading began, they sat there and listened to the whole story! Never once did they get bored! The pages are very colorful with wonderful illustrations. They really liked the fact that the cover would glow in the dark when I held it to the light for a minute! And, the cover is safe and nontoxic! After it was all over, they were excited to go to bed! They wanted to go make their Dream Wishes, and maybe even dream about going to see all the Shushies! They have already asked me today if we can read it again tonight!


The CD I got was also great! I put it on earlier in the evening while I was here on the computer. As soon as they heard the music, they came running! *INTERRUPTION*
Ha, my son just saw the CD cover here on my post and starting pointing and bouncing. So, we are listening now as I type! I really do love children's music. You can't help but sing along and dance! The CD is all about going to sleep, and why it's a good thing. So, I play it during the day and get them excited about going to bed. Isn't 'jammin' out' great!? Our favortie song is 'The Shushybye Bues', which is also featured in the book!





Shushybye is also on tour! The Shushybyes SUMMER DREAMIN' 2010 tour kicks off in June! They are starting off on the East Coast. For more information and ticket ordering, head on over to the website.

I've been desperate enough to tell my son to go to bed because his batman costume he loves to wear was tired. It was a rough day haha.

In reading I learned that a 4 year old was so impressed with the program that she wanted it to take naps too. This might be a fine thing for my grandson. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.
