maxiPraise continues the tradition of fun, themed music with a message. ‘Way 2 Grow’ takes you on a journey through a young child’s day, teaching that Jesus is there and interested in every minute. Lively and full of fun, the music is further enhanced by the addition of a printable songbook and 45-page puzzle book packed with activities - available on the maxiPraise website. ‘Way 2 Grow’ is an invaluable resource for parents and teachers alike.
Many of these songs were written by a mother having fun with her toddler, trying to get him up and dressed in the morning, engaged in the day’s learning activities, enjoying healthy meals, then off to sleep at night, all the while being aware of the very real presence of Jesus.
Begin your day with “Wake Up Sleepyhead” and kneel down to talk to Jesus with “Dear Jesus.” Grab your clothes and “Let’s Get Ready,” not forgetting that no matter what fun things you do, “Take Jesus Along.” Boys and girls alike enjoy making train noises and chugging actions to “Peep Peep Puff Puff.” The traditional favourite “Oh Be Careful” has been given a subtle change in meaning, reinforcing the aspect of choice children have in behaviour, and the love of our creator God as intrinsic motive – check out the new lyrics!
All preschoolers love songs about animals! They’ll take any opportunity to make animal noises, wave their arms to fly like birds or wiggle like fish. “When I See a Fish,” “Cockadoodledoo,” and “Animal Thank You” are essentials if you like that kind of fun.
‘Way 2 Grow’ includes the chorus from “Tell Me a Story,” originally recorded on the album “My Friend Jesus,” making this shortened form an ideal introduction song for story time, at home or school. The album encourages service and sharing with “I Have a Loving Heart” and “All That I Am” and healthy eating with “Yummy Yum Yum.” Start your meal with the “Grace” or add an international flavour with “Mexitalian Grace.” Introduce counting with “Count With Me” and leap into physical action with “God Made Me to Move.” “Time to Go” is an ideal ending song for any children’s program, beginning as a prayer, then clapping to end with joyful applause.
If you’re looking for a song for Father’s or Mother’s Day, “God Gave Me You” is your perfect choice. “A Prayer Away” is the dreamy lullaby that reassures your child ‘He sends His angels to watch and to keep you safe while you dream, He’s only a prayer away…Tomorrow’s another day...’
