High Five: What A Beautiful Day by Benny Time

Each week Kinderling gives a HIGH FIVE to music, artists, albums and other stuff we think is awesome!

Who better to write music for kids than someone who spends their day laughing, playing and caring for a horde of little humans.

Benny Time is a rad dad and a talented teacher who, over his years working in early childhood education, has developed a repertoire of songs that are informed by, and speak to, the toddler massive.

Benny - or ‘Mr Time’ to his L-plate peeps - has a great turn of phrase that captures what it’s like to be an Aussie kid with big dreams and a huge imagination. Like There’s A Tree In My Street which sees Benny pairing up for a duet with Frente!’s Angie Hart, capturing the simple joy and possibility that a child finds in a neighbourhood tree. I Can Be Any Animal sees Benny calling in the big (actually little) guns to help him sing about all the animals they could pretend to be. And it’s not all imagination and dreamy lyrics. If you want to hear Benny turn it up to 11 then go no further If You’re Not Looking At Me which cranks up the guitar and gets the kids rockin’.

An awesome High Five to get your kids dancing over the holidays!
