It comes as no surprise that children love reggae. The genre's mix of rhythm and blues, jazz and rocksteady with hints of African and Latin American influences is naturally suited to dancing. And we all know that kids love to dance!
If you're ready to introduce your child to the wonderful world of reggae music, a great song to start with is "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley & The Wailers. Originally released in 1977 on their album Exodus, this song has become timeless. The song is thought to be inspired by birds that would visit Marley's home when he was a child.
This is a fun song to move to and its theme of "every little thing is gonna be alright" is a wonderful message to help calm a young, worried mind.
