We’ve been using the iPad as an educational tool for the kids, and one thing they love is watching their favorite videos on it (as well as games, of course, which we screen well). It’s been really useful so far, especially with homeschooling KM. I am able to teach him the songs we need to learn, especially for Sibika and Filipino with the help of YouTube.
Anyway, MJ is so into the song-and-dance numbers right now and her current faves are the Backyardigans. At a little over 2 years old, I’m amazed at how she is able to operate the iPad to watch her favorite videos and ABC games. One particular song got my attention and a quick research tells me it’s from Strawberry Shortcake. It’s a really nice song about friendship and I’m glad that there are wholesome shows out there for kids to know that true friendships are really treasures. I hope you enjoy the song as much as we do 🙂
I’ll Treasure You
A friend can be worth her weight in gold and more.
More precious each day than the day before.
The time you choose to spend together with a friend is all it takes
A few treasures found down in the deep blue sea
May sparkle and excite both you and me.
But putting trinkets first would have to be the worst of all mistakes.
Can treasure hold me close? Can treasure comb my hair?
Would treasure laugh at all my jokes? Does treasure really care?
Do trinkets sit and chat? Do trifles swear their truths?
Do golden baubles make me laugh?
They shimmer and they glimmer
But I think I’ll treasure you.
To all my best and sweetest friends,
You know I’ll treasure you.
Do you have other songs for kids that you like? Do share 🙂
