TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The University of Alabama’s Child Development Resources invites parents and children to its fourth annual lullaby concert Feb. 8 from 5:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. at the Child Development Research Center on the UA campus.
This year’s concert will feature Shawn Brown’s “The Super Fun Show.”
The free community event, which is sponsored by the PNC Bank Foundation, provides opportunities for children and families to experience music in a fun, family-focused way.
Brown performs children’s songs in an interactive and educational style, said Dr. April Kendrick, director of Child Development Resources.
“It should be an engaging and joyous event,” said Kendrick. “Shawn encourages everyone to get up and join in. There will be lots of whirling, twirling and singing at ‘The Super Fun Show.’”
Brown has performed at numerous conferences, schools and childcare centers across the country. Children will interact with Brown and each other throughout the evening. Songs like “I’ve Got Five Senses,” “Opposites” and “Born to Win” will get everyone moving and learning.
The event is designed for parents and children from birth through 5 years old. Refreshments will be served, and families will also receive a free CD.
