PreS-K—Part of the award-winning series of "Happy Kids Songs," both of these albums feature terrific professional vocalists (adults and children) and instrumentalists. Each album includes five songs in rock, hip-hop, rap, jazz, pop, polka, yodel, and show tune musical styles. "In the Same Boat" explains that retaliation for perceived wrongs is not a good solution. Kids are urged to speak out against bullying in "Stand Up." Listeners are also encouraged to be "More Kind" and treat others the way they want to be treated. "Attitude of Gratitude" explains that happiness comes from inside each of us. "Who Gives a Hoot" rounds out the selection of the first album. With "Welcome to the Parade," Greatest Hits introduces listeners to several band instruments. Listeners are encouraged to use the "Magic Word"—"please." "Clean Up Time" can be fun with everyone helping. "A Totally Yodeling Day" and "Together" bring this album to a close.
VERDICT These offerings will help listeners build better social and emotional skills.
