Why is music such an effective medium for building new skills in children? It provides an environment of motivation and reward to make challenging tasks seem easier for children and to provide breaks in the task to prevent frustration. Music also initially creates and then later triggers additional neural pathways in the brain that enhance the ability to “hold on” to acquired information.
Busy Bitty Bee Books™ are written by Brenna T. Beecroft, a board certified music therapist in private practice. The books utilize music to teach and/or practice new skills, both pre-academic and academic, to children between the ages of 3 and 10. Look for the seal on each book cover to determine the age group for which a particular book is best suited.
