A Sing-A-Long Book that Celebrates Diversity and Abilities
My Body’s Special was originally released with a full album of music.
When you purchase the book you will be given an URL (link) and QR code that will take you to 35-minutes of music specifically designed for young children. Jennifer Buchanan wrote the songs for over her first decade of directing music therapy programs.
Music has always been an important influence in children’s lives. From their first lullaby to songs in games, children are educated, entertained, and moved to creativity through music. Music therapists springboard off these early experiences and introduce new melodies, tones, and sounds that will add to a child’s positive memory development to promote communication and other non-music goals.
These songs came out of her clinical work aimed to develop motor skills, language acquisition, and the imagination process.
In My Body's Special, you will meet so many new friends including George, Mika, Mason..just to name a few.
Just like EVERY body is different, EVERY family and life circumstance is also unique.
