Parents have reported back to us that they are very tired of hearing these songs; their kids LOVE the music and are playing it non-stop. What a great testimony! Classroom teachers have reported that their students ask every day if there is a new Cool Kind Kid song to go with a lesson that day. And, they want the songs to be played over and over in class. Kids have been heard singing the songs in the hallways and cafeteria. Many have told us about creative hand and dance moves that they have developed to enhance the music.

It is also endorsed by KIDS FIRST! Coalition for Quality Children’s Media. Their adult review said: “This CD is a 17 set of character-affirming songs that present children with options to make positive choices in their daily existence of life, school and home with special attention paid to peer pressure. The songs are well produced and performed with a mix of adult and child performers. An array of musical styles from rock to pop to folk infuse the messages of manners, respect and making a stand with an accessible immediacy. The collection is a valuable teaching tool for parents and educators to integrate into their bag of tricks. The structure is sound. Every song has a behavior that ideally should be modeled - manners, standing up for what is right, following rules, kindness and similar. The content is age appropriate and, of course, emphasizes that it is "cool to be kind."
The Cool Kind Kid CD has won more than 15 national awards, including Parents’ Choice, Teachers’ Choice, The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval, and numerous Creative Child Awards.
