In Vancouver, British Columbia
In the 70’s I helped the “play therapists” in what was then the kids ward of the Vancouver General. Before the Children’s Hospital was built. I brought my guitar and voice and played to the kids of all ages in all conditions. It was heart touching and memorable. For the young teens I played what was on the radio!
Looking back at the Mother who grabbed me and wanted me to know that her baby hadn’t slept for days….but fell asleep while I was singing! I am reminded of another time on the ranch…when I created my nursery collage and songs and recorded them to play in a bedroom without me! It worked too! Maybe better because I wasn’t present to stimulate.
So I created a web site where people could go and play my recording if they needed a voice in the room for their little ones to fall asleep to.
You might surprise yourself at how many of these tunes and rhymes you already know!
Here are the Mother Goose Rhymes I recorded.
Did you notice how I changed the “Old Woman In A Shoe”?
Here are the nursery songs I recorded as a collage.
Katie sings Mother Goose has its own website. Hear the continuous loop of rhyme and song at this site and see if it helps to put your little one into happy sleep!
Let me know how it goes…
