Holiday Gift for Children
With low self-esteem being such a huge issue nowadays, any gift that helps to boost confidence is a wise choice, especially for school-aged children. Empowering children through music is the mission of the Recess Music Best Foot Forward series and the two discs in the collection, Big Bully and U R Some 1, are a great way to encourage positive thoughts and actions for children.
Big Bully features 15 songs that deal with interactions between children. I really appreciated all the songs about how to deal with negative people and situations. It’s a sad fact that every child will eventually encounter another child who will make them feel bad about themselves, but having positive information so that kids are ready to deal with the problem can be so important. Just knowing why a bully acts the way they do and being assured that telling an adult is the proper decision can be hugely beneficial to a child.
U R Some 1 is the newest CD in the Best Foot Forward collection and contains twelve songs that emphasise children valuing themselves. From songs about their senses to ones about their brains, the focus of the CD is very much on the fact that everyone is different and that’s what makes them special. Children can sometimes feel very discouraged when they feel unimportant and the CD is such a fun way of reminding children how valuable and special they truly are.
Both CDs have an upbeat folk-rock style that kids are sure to enjoy, and parents will certainly appreciate the useful subject matter of the songs. Either of the CDs in the Best Foot Forward collection would make a great gift or stocking-stuffer for preschool-aged children and older. The albums can be purchased at Amazon.com in either digital or CD form. Check out the discs for yourself and give the gift of empowerment and music at the same time.
