Dr. Anne Meeker Watson


Dr. Anne Meeker Watson developed the  SING.PLAY.LOVE.®  program for one important reason: to help all young children love learning. And as a music therapist and early childhood specialist, she’s made it her mission to figure out the best ways to help youngsters fall in love with learning.

What she discovered from working—and playing—with thousands of toddlers and preschoolers is that music and play are powerful and important teaching tools.

SING.PLAY.LOVE.®  products incorporate equal parts science and MAGIC to make learning so fun that children will never know they are learning important things.

Colorful, creative, whimsical and unique, each book and accompanying song inspires children to learn essential early learning skills through play, exploration and discovery. And, importantly, our products foster connection with the important people in a child’s life. What could be better than singing, playing and snuggling with the child you love?
