May Club Card picks are here!

Hello, listeners! It might be April Fools’ Day, but this isn’t a prank: your May Club Card Picks are really here! This month, we’ve got a wide selection of classic childhood tales, animal-tastic music, inspirational stories and more that the whole family is sure to enjoy.


This Month’s Exclusives


Peter Pan

Author: J M Barrie

Age range: 5-8, 8-12

Running time: 2 hrs 12 mins

When Peter Pan flies through the Darling children's nursery window one night, he is nearly captured and makes a hasty escape, leaving behind his shadow. Returning with the fairy Tinker Bell to reclaim it, he wakes up Wendy, John and Michael, and whisks them away to the magical shores of Neverland. 

There they meet the Lost Boys, befriend Tiger Lily and her Braves, swim with the mermaids in the lagoon and have a host of wonderful adventures. But danger awaits too, for the terrible Captain Hook and his pirate gang are determined to make them walk the plank...

JM Barrie's timeless masterpiece is introduced by Michael Morpurgo and read by ten star actors: Kit Harington, Martin Jarvis, Alex Jennings, Alex Kingston, Joanna Lumley, Helen McCrory, Jennifer Saunders, Juliet Stevenson, David Walliams and Zoë Wanamaker.


Laurie Berkner’s Animal Songs

Artist: The Laurie Berkner Band

Age range: All ages

Sing, dance and play along with these songs about animals and the fun times they have. Laurie says: “I find animals incredibly fun to sing about. Perhaps it’s because I love making animal noises! Here is a collection of songs about all different kinds of animals – from bugs to baby rhinos, and dragons to dogs to dinosaurs. Have fun acting them out together!”


 


This Month’s Swaps

As always, you can swap out this month’s picks for some Card Store favorites. We’ve got eight options to choose from, from musical collections and sleepy songs to classic stories and inspirational football tales.


My First Ballet Album

Artist: Various Artists

Age range: All ages

Running time (music only): 1 hr 13 mins

A bird dancing, an ox on a roof, flowers doing a waltz, a swan twirling about…what world is this? This is the magical world of ballet. The stage is full of people in colourful costumes, but nobody speaks. Introduce your child to ballet with this wonderful album.



Sounds for Sleep

Artist: Yoto

Age range: 0-2, 3-5

A collection of soothing sounds to help your child fall asleep.

We are by the sea, and can hear the gentle sound of waves breaking on the shore and the clink of boats bobbing about on the water. In the jungle, all is at peace for now; the frogs croak gently and the crickets play their chorus.

As well as sounds of nature, there is a collection of melodic musical arrangements that will soothe and relax, as well as some of the quirkier ways to help bring sleep such as white noise, pink noise, and the gentle hum of a distant vacuum cleaner!


Play All Day!

Artist: London Rhymes

Age range: 3-5

Running time: 24 mins

'Play All Day' is all about songs that might help you get through the day – from dawn till dusk! Written together with parents and tots on our projects around London, they are written in response to the realities of modern-day parenting, the highs and the lows. We've turned nappy changes, hand washing, bathtime, potty training and more into theme tunes to your day!

Happy Families: The Audio Collection

Author: Allan Ahlberg

Age range: 5-8

Running time: 1 hr

Families come in all shapes and sizes, big ones, small ones, funny ones and even silly ones. In this first ever audio collection you can discover the story of Mrs Wobble the Waitress, Mr Biff the Boxer, Miss Dirt the Dustman's Daughter and many more of Allan Ahlberg's beloved Happy Families.

This audio collection features 11 classic tales brought to life with original music and dazzling sound effects, all read in Alexander Armstrong's unique style.


The Enormous Crocodile

The Wind in the Willows

Author: Kenneth Grahame

Age range: 5-8, 8-12

Running time: 3 hrs 22 mins

First published in 1908, The Wind in the Willows belongs to a golden age of children’s books. These charming tales of the riverbank, describing the adventures of Ratty, Mole, Badger and their irrepressible but conceited friend, Toad of Toad Hall, have become classics loved as much, perhaps, by adults as by children. This is an abridged version of the story.



Little Leaders: Exceptional Men in Black History

Meet the little leaders. They're brave. They're bold. They changed the world.

This incredible volume educates and inspires as it relates true stories of Black men in history. This illuminating book brings to life both iconic and lesser-known figures.
