Tune In Tuesday

Welcome to Tune In Tuesday! What is Tune In Tuesday? It's a monthly round up about music-favorite songs, favorite albums, and favorite ways to use it in the library! If you have a Tune In Tuesday post this month, be sure to share it in the comments so I can add it to the round up-and let me know if you want to host next month.

The Pop Ups: Appetite for Construction 

I recently discovered The Pop Ups-a fantastic kids music duo from New York and I've become the biggest fan. I've been telling everyone I know about them and trying to get everyone to listen to their music. This is fantastically fun music that kids and parents will love!

The Pop Ups have three albums out, with Appetite for Construction as the latest just released this year. I love all three and they are great for background music for programs at the library or play time at home. But I've also used several of their songs for programs.

Check out a preview for Appetite for Construction.

Robot Dance: I've used this one in my dance party and as part of my geeky storytime. What's more geeky than robots? It's a lot of fun and a great imaginative and pretending song.

Block House: A song about blocks? It's the perfect opening song to kick off my block parties.

Airband (from Outside Voices): I used this one in storytime and we jumped around like rock stars-tons of fun!

Be sure to check out The Pop Ups-I'm sure you'll become addicted to their music like I have!
