Let’s Take the Bus

Did you have a favorite record when you were growing up?

Did you have one that you played over and over?

The record cover is in very bad shape and is in two pieces.

The songs are of course all educational and have a good message.

Disney, record player, math, educational recordThis afternoon I also listened to another favorite that was all about Multiplication and Division. I already had my times table down by the time I got this record, but perhaps it helped my younger siblings learn a little bit about math. Walt Disney did have some good educational records long ago.

I have a stack of records I plan on listening to in the days ahead. More than a few of them will be taking me down memory lane.

What were some of your favorite childhood records?
