35 Minutes of Continuous Kids Songs with Miss Nina!

I’ve been meaning to make one of these compilations for a long time now.

Below is a video of 35 continuous minutes of Miss Nina videos – edited and trimmed so that we go from song to song to song without intro after intro from me – lol!

You can feel good knowing that the children will be engaged in 35 minutes of interactive music – singing along, moving along and reading along – and you can, perhaps, get something done or simply take a little break. 🙂 Below the video is the list of songs included in this compilation.

SONG LIST:

1. I’m Bringing Home A Baby Bumblebee
2. Wheels On The Bus
3. Snuggle Puppy (Song) by Sandra Boynton
4. Five Little Monkeys Swinging In A Tree
5. On Top of Spaghetti
6. Five Little Monkeys Jumping On The Bed
7. Miss Nina’s Clean-Up Medley
8. Baby Shark
9. Are You Sleeping, Brother John?
10. Ba-Rump Went The Little Green Frog
11. The Pirate Song
12. The Little Turtle
13. Zoom Zoom Zoom!
14. Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney (song by Nina Stone)

Enjoy! And please share with any adults or children or families or teachers or librarians who you feel might also enjoy!

Have a wonderful day and a spectacular week!

He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands

Hi there! Welcome back to my blog (or I guess it’s more of a vlog, huh?)

I had a purpose for choosing this song this week.

The world is feeling pretty tense  to me these days. Especially here in the USA. Whatever side of the political fence you fall on there’s just a lot of tension, stress all around, anywhere you look. And our kids feel it too.

So – I chose a song this week about having faith.

In my most stressful or darkest moments, I find solace in remembering there’s something greater than and more powerful than me that I can have faith in, rely on, and rest in – if I choose to.

This is the thing that all religions and faiths have in common.  Which is also a great jumping off point for discussing tolerance and acceptance – looking for what we all have in common.

And so, I thought that today we’d sing this song “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands” to just take a pause and practice a little faith. Even if it just helps us all to feel good for just a few minutes. 🙂

Because at the very least, when you feel good, you do good!

And at the most – we remember that there is a greater benevolent force at work, and we can tap into that for help and guidance any time we want to.

Have a wonderful week!

I’m A Little Snowman

Happy New Year!!

So happy to see you here. And you know what, there’s one more reason to celebrate:

It’s  5th Birthday of the Miss Nina Weekly Video show!!
I’m AMAZED!
In five years I’ve gone from just me in my office with a little desire to reach children with engaging, interactive content – to a YouTube channel with over 12,000 Subscribers & a Worldwide viewership!

India, South Africa, Spain, New Zealand, England, Tokyo, Canda and from all over the USA and beyond I receive emails, videos and photos letting me know that your kids are enjoying these videos and my music.

 I feel so blessed and grateful for the internet and the platform of YouTube for making this possible. And am so happy and grateful to be connected to all of you.

In the meantime – if you’re on the East Coast I am looking forward to seeing you this week and next – all the info is below the video. But let’s get to that video! Here is “I’m A Little Snowman”:

It’s officially Winter time, so time to embrace it and sing song Winter songs.  This is a cute, simple, fun little sing-along & move-along song about a snowman to the tune of “I’m A Little Teapot.” 

The lyrics are:

I'm a little snowman short and fat,
here are my buttons; here is my hat.
when the sun comes out I cannot play,
I just slowly melt away.

Enjoy the video! And if you're in NJ or PA, I can't wait to see you this weekend and next. See below for details. And have a wonderful day!

Tappy Holidays! A Jingle Bells Tap Dance for You

Happy, Tappy Holidays to you!

You know I love to dance – and I’ve been toying with the idea of incorporating a little bit more of it into my weekly videos. 🙂

So, I broke out my black patent leather tap shoes, did a little choreographing and – voila!  A little jingle bells tap dance for you today.

I remember from my own Life, and now that I have a a three-almost-four-year-old how exciting it was to watch someone tap dance, and how totally fun it was to realize that if I shuffled my feet around a lot, they made some pretty cool sounds too – even without tap shoes!

So – I encourage your little ones to get up and “tap along”. You don’t need to know how to tap dance. Just find the rhythm in your feet and and joy in your heart and you’ll do just fine. 🙂

Wishing you a very fun and festive holiday whatever you celebrate! With Chanukah beginning on Saturday and Christmas on Sunday – I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a great weekend for everyone!

Much Love to you all! xoxo

Wild Things! And Ode to Where The Wild Things Are

I know – I thought I’d be posting a Holiday song, too – LOL!

But I was thinking about holiday gifts, and how much I love giving classic children’s books as presents – and this book came to mind. And, of course, my song did too!

And I realized that although I’d done this song for the video show before –  it was a long long time ago.

In fact, nearly five years ago!

It was the very first song/video of the Miss Nina Weekly Video Show!

So much has happened and changed since that video.  That was even before the song had made it onto an album. (You can find “Wild Things” on my album, Sha Doo Be Doop.)

Seems like enough time had passed that I’d be ok to repeat it. 🙂

So – no – it’s not a Holiday song. But it’s FUN! After reading the story with your kids, click play on the video so they can  Roar their terrible roars and gnash their terrible teeth with me. And get ready for a lot of jumping, too.

Oh and hey – if you’re in NJ, be sure and come see me at the Jolly Jingle Jam this coming Saturday, 12/17 at The Woodland in Maplewood , NJ.

Here’s a little Miss Nina  video about it: CLICK HERE  and you can get you tickets HERE.

Enjoy! Thanks for watching and I’ll see you soon!

xoxo
