Juno’s Rhythm Adventure presents a world of giggles and imagination. Starting from a historical quote, from Plato:
"The whole of man’s life stands in need of a right rhythm"
This becomes the theme of the entire video focusing on the rhythm aspect of music in a way that can appreciated by children. The recommended age is from 12 months to four years and you might even want to introduce it to your six month old because to me that’s when they really start exploring. Music is a great way to get them into touch and sound. One important key to remember in my opinion is that children learn with interaction. They are too young to be sat in front of a TV and expected to pick it all up on their own.
Classical music has always been well received as a way to stimulate higher thinking levels in children, and the orchestral works by Dr. Takahashi the creator of Juno, provide the perfect backdrop to Juno, her friends and all the other creative visuals. Juno and her friends are interactive. They talk directly to your children to get them clapping, snapping and playing along. They encourage running, walking to dressing silly and invent a world of discovery waiting for your children.
Dr Takahashi is passionate about her work on Juno:
“As a classical composer and mother, I believe that music has the power to inspire and nurture us creatively, intellectually and emotionally. Music allows us to feel and express ourselves more completely than words often can. My wish is for all children to be surrounded by beautiful and interesting sounds, and for them to keep music forever a part of their lives.”
I found Juno Baby to be easy to watch. I wasn’t left annoyed like some of the other cartoon characters my children like to watch leave me. Classical music is so much easier to listen to than other things. My kids wanted to watch it again and my daughter asked me a lot of questions. She’s at the stage where everything is a question. My son, loves to bang on everything he can anyways so he of course loved it.
