Thousands of parents and teachers worldwide have learned how fun and helpful it can be to have Happy Kids© Songs in their lives. There are 10 different albums to download in the Happy Kids’ Songs series, each with 5 songs. Dr. Mac’s latest album, Gratitude and Kindness, helps kids value their connections with others and learn about positive thinking, kindness, gratitude, and bullying prevention.
These full production songs are both highly entertaining and age appropriate—adult quality music, but with words and themes that tap into the most common issues confronting young kids. The variety of adult and child soloists, children’s chorus, and wide range of instruments and styles of music easily hold children’s attention, and parents’ too.
Music has been shown to be an effective, almost magical medium for teaching character and social and emotional skills--a fun way to “make the medicine go down.” Most of us still remember the words to songs from our childhood. Don’t you still sing the ABC song in your head when you’re trying to remember alphabetical order? This is the magic of music. It lights up over a dozen areas in the brain, reinforcing concepts across multiple intelligences.
There may be no more powerful method of learning than through music, and no more important lessons for children than those that focus on character and social and emotional skills.
