This Month’s Picks
Two brand new interactive releases this month!
3, 2, 1, Beatbox!
The Beatbox Collective
First up, bringing a burst of beatboxing brilliance, is 3, 2, 1, Beatbox! Two world champion beatboxers from the Beatbox Collective teach you how to make music with your mouth on this fun and interactive music card.
Meditate With Me
For the second new release, we’ve got a gentle, clear, and fun step-by-step guide to meditation and mindfulness by Mariam Gates. Perfect for helping little ones (and adults, too!) relax during the bustling holiday season, kids will learn how to focus on their breath, the sensations in their body, and the sounds around them to settle their busy minds and understand their emotions.
This Month’s Swaps
As always, you can swap out these Cards for something else if you wish! We’ve got eight options to choose from, with snowy classics, brilliant albums, timeless adventures and more…
A New Kids Album
Our first swap features twelve fun and inclusive tracks by Grammy-award winning music therapist, Jon Samson. With musical therapy, mentorship and inspirational life lessons that encourage emotional growth and development weaved into each track, A New Kids Album is an essential Card for any Yoto library.
Our second swap is an atmospheric sound effects and lighting Card that turns your Yoto Player into a crackling fire, perfect for wintery nights! Gather round and use Crackling Fire as a prop for storytimes and creative play - and it’s the perfect occasion for s’mores.
Mog the Forgetful Cat
A timeless tale for younger listeners up next, featuring everyone’s favorite forgetful family cat! Mog always seems to be in trouble, and is always forgetting things. But one night, her forgetfulness comes in very handy…
A Family Christmas
A delightful confection of Christmas texts: the story of The Nutcracker told with Tchaikovsky’s immortal music, Dylan Thomas’ A Child’s Christmas in Wales, and more. An enchanting collection for those family Christmas evenings!
Lost on Infinity
Rockford's Rock Opera
A heartwarming musical adventure with an ecological twist that will have children enthralled and adults singing along! Lost on Infinity, the first adventure from Rockford's Rock Opera, is a hopeful story that shows that even the smallest creatures, and humans, can make the biggest difference.
Embark on a charming alpine meadow adventure with Swiss orphan Heidi in this abridged version of the 1880 classic. When Heidi goes to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps, she befriends both the animals and children. But she’s soon sent to work at Clara's stern house, where she longs to return home!
The Snow Queen and Other Stories
Hans Christian Andersen
For slightly older children looking to get into the winter spirit, you might want to choose this collection of Hans Christian Andersen tales. Alongside the Disney-inspiring classic are four other tales: The Leap-Frog, The Old House, The Snowman and The Daisy.
Ladybird Audio Adventures: The Frozen World
Even if you don’t get much snow this Christmas, there’s still frosty fun to be had! Budding scientists can join explorers Otto and Missy on an exciting journey to the Arctic and Antarctica, where they’ll discover penguins, orcas, seals, and snow.
We hope you enjoy your Club options this month, and we’ll be back in the new year with a whole new selection of Cards to choose from. Happy listening!
