Any kids who has heard Yellow Submarine probably loves it. There are a few Beatles songs that kids just instinctively love. Other songs- not so much. Songs like Dear Prudence and Here Comes the Sun aren't songs that are normally expected to be hits with young kids. But, there are several special arrangements of Beatles songs that make this music more accessible to babies, toddlers and young children.
For parents who want to introduce heir kids to the Beatles as early as possible, or for parents who are sick and tired of hearing the same three kids' songs over and over, there is a way to combine kids' music and the Beatles. Several arrangements have been created with the very young in mind.
Some are instrumental versions that are recorded much like lullabies. These albums are recorded to be used like baby CDs and played to help babies fall asleep faster. There are also a number of albums that have been created to make the songs sound like the traditional songs played for young kids. Some of these feature gentler versions of the songs that are then sung by groups of kids.
For the kids who listen to this music, the kids' versions of the music may make them appreciate hearing the real versions of the songs later. This instills a love for the Beatles in kids early. They can also be played near the stomach of a pregnant mother for a little Beatles music in the womb. That way, a new baby may be born with a healthy appreciation of Beatles music, as nature intended.
Beatles Hits for Kids features The Bingo Kids singing Beatles songs in a kid-friendly way.
Beatles for Babies is much less annoying that most other baby music.
