Volume 2 Shake, Rattle & Roll – Let’s Dance! DVD

MP4 Video

It's been proven that a child's brain development is profoundly affected by being involved in music. Exploring Music was created by Lisa Adams, a piano and voice teacher who has a BA in Music Education and 30 years of experience.

Lisa’s vision for Exploring Music developed from her own observation of the positive effect music had on her students and she felt called to share those effects with other children. From research she discovered that “…early musical experiences can dramatically enhance a child’s ability to acquire language, vocabulary and sensory motor skills, spatial reasoning, logic and rhythm skills” to quote Elizabeth Stilwell from the Early Childhood Center at Cornell University.

Designed for children ages 2 through early elementary, this is not a baby-sitting tool; it is an educational tool that uses fun and games to help develop a child's brain, body, and spirit. and their bodies and their spirit.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
