No whining allowed, unless you’re singing the Blues

My personal favorite road trip amusement item: All-American Car-i-Oke.

This is way better than ordinary music. It’s full participation music!

It has a CD with the music, and all the lyrics in the spiral bound book. It also includes several smaller lyrics booklets – one for the back seat, the way-back seat, and another for anyone who doesn’t like to share.

I bought a copy of All-American Car-i-Oke for my kids a few years ago (Ok, I admit that I probably bought it mostly for me – the biggest kid in the car).  We never tire of it, and use it at least once every trip. We have the most fun with the backseat drumming, and the “make up your own Blues” song.

In fact, it helped evolve a rule in our car — “No whining allowed unless you’re singing the Blues!”

I wish I could get my 7-year-old to tolerate my singing voice. He doesn’t mind it when his dad — who REALLY can’t carry a tune — sings, but when I start belting out “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” he acts like I just got naked in an amphitheater. This sounds good, though; might have to try it out.

Liz, you may have a secret weapon on your hands! I admit that I have been known to use the mere threat of my singing as a way to get antsy children to stop fighting!

You are a genius mom or may i say the biggest kid in the car. I would like to purchase one of this. Who knows, with practice i may improve my singing style. Before that my kids would have to be patient with my voice. Its fun though with children.
