4 Stars Out Of 5
Sweet and Playful
April 29, 2011
Integrity Music has produced a series of fun, topical music CDs for the pre-K crowd under the name God & Me. Featuring a children's chorus and adult vocalists, these bright, upbeat songs are drawn from scripture surrounding a specific topic. God Helps Me is filled with short age-appropriate songs that lead children into a deeper dependence upon God to help, protect, sustain, enable, and sanctify them. There are also some general faith-building songs that celebrate the guidance of God's Word and belief in the risen Lord.
Drawn from a variety of musical styles, some of the songs sound jazzy, some are marching songs, others have more of a calypso rhythm, others are lullaby style - this is quite a diverse collection of children's music. Some of the songs feature children and an adult, others are only children, some are rounds etc. Some of this collection's songs are upbeat while others are relaxed and contemplative. Some are even goofy!
Just this afternoon my little ones were marching around the living room exclaiming that they could do "All things!" through Christ along with the song "I Can Do All Things". It is exciting to see this kind of discipleship by music taking place even as they sing and dance. This is a sweet album to have on hand for dancing in the living room time.
