Gerry Rhymes {Review and Giveaway}

What’s Gerry Rhymes? Well, it’s a different kind of children’s album. The song titles are the typical children’s rhymes and songs such as Yankee Doodle, ABC song, This Old Man but these have been given a snazzy makeover.

That’s why it’s for kids 1 – 92. 🙂

The songs in the children’s pop album, “Gerry Rhymes” were composed and arranged by Geraldine Png together with her husband, Bert Lindsey.
She was a singer/songwriter in Singapore, as well as a flight attendant. Today she is a children’s music education executive with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra.

The appeal is great because it’s such a refreshing (and definitely welcomed) change for parents who listen to the normal versions of these children’s songs day in day out.

I have found the arrangement unique, and of course, it’s totally atypical of children’s songs but watch how the kids immediately start grooving once they realise that hey, this isn’t the usual beat of this song! It’s indeed “a refreshing twist of nursery rhymes and pop, jazz, fusion, classical.” (Source)

My kids have been requesting to listen to this CD a few times a day since the album arrived last week – when they wake up in the morning, during mealtimes and random pockets of time throughout the day. Yeah, it’s on most of the time. Our family favourite is the first song of the album – Yankee Doodle, and thanks to Gerry Rhymes, my almost 2.5 year old has also taken a keen interest in children’s songs and sings along!

The album is available online at CD Baby and in Popular book stores and HMV Singapore. And there are “Gerry Rhymes” music videos on YouTube. You can listen to the most recent song and download (it’s free!) their rendition of Wheels on the bus.

Here’s the good news! There are THREE copies of Gerry Rhymes up for grabs, with compliments from Geraldine.

As usual, participating is easy. You can win by simply leaving a comment on this blog post (tell me which is your favourite nursery rhyme!) and remembering to click ‘I Commented’ in the Rafflecopter widget to qualify. The rest of the options are optional, but would render you more chances to win!
