Music from around the world

You remember me telling you about Global Wonders, right? It’s all about introducing kids to cross-cultural music and broadening their horizons. Did you know that they have their very own Global Wonders iTunes Store? It’s true! You can download tunes whenever you want ’em, and keep the little ones happy with a variety of musical delights.

I love the idea of kids listening to something beyond “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” And I can think of no better way to get them digging music from Ireland, Africa, India, Argentina, and beyond.

So here’s the deal—two lucky Want Not readers are going to win some Global Wonder musical goodness. The grand prize winner will receive both the Around the World Music CD and the Around the World DVD for their listening and viewing pleasure. A second winner will receive just the CD. That’s two chances to win, and two chances to get your kid to listen to something beyond that one CD they want to hear over and over and over again. Sound good?

For a chance to win, first go read the contest rules and regulations, then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, July 19th, 2009 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random drawing and ability to yodel. (Just kidding. Pretty sure there’s no yodeling on the CD.)

Ready? Go!
