Earlier this year I bought a CD with 25 scriptures set to music called LDS Scripture Rock. It is intended for high school seminary students learning their scripture mastery. I bought the Book of Mormon version because I remember my seminary teacher back in 2003 playing the songs for us and I still remember those scriptures and the tunes!
So I was frustrated when the CD I bought was not the CD I remembered. I like the CD well enough but it is a little weird. The words are not always clear and easy to understand, which I find frustrating because I specifically bought this CD for Sparrow to listen to. And if he can't understand the words, what's the point? This is the debate that I go through in my head, because I was considering getting the Old and New Testament CDs, but I don't know if it's worth it.
For what it's worth, Sparrow does like the music and he did memorize the scripture in about a week. But 2 Nephi 2:27 is also one of the clearer sung songs on the CD, so who knows what results we'd have had with anything else. So I can kind of recommend this CD if you want a fun way to teach your kids scriptures. As long as you are listening too and correct and explain when they get the lyrics wrong, heh.
I'm sure this CD is probably helpful for all ages, but I do wish it didn't take itself quite so seriously. The singers all sing like...they're serious. The CD I remember had a sense of humor - they knew they were being a little cheesy but they didn't mind, and that made it fun. This one is just a little awkward because they're trying to be all American Idol-esque and it gets painful.
So I'll keep you posted if we decide to get the rest of the CDs. You can listen to samples at the website too. In the meantime, here is Sparrow reciting 2 Nephi 2:27, which is kind of a long scripture for a brand-new 4 year old to recite in front of a large room of children! (He didn't need an ounce of help either, wow!)
