Listening Lounge: Recess Music Wild Child Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

“Recess Music, a company that strives to awaken kids to the magnificence of our planet through albums of earth-friendly music" has recently released Wild Child, the fourth in its award-winning "Celebrate Earth" series of CDs.
The Wild Child album features a collection of various artists singing about animals and Africa. My children and I received a copy of the album to review and were very impressed with the upbeat nature-inspired sounds found throughout the CD. The songs were all very unique and made us want to venture out to the African savannas ourselves… well maybe just Disney World’s Animal Kingdom… or better yet, why not our local zoo!!!
Regarding the inspiration of the CD, Recess Music’s founder, Nancy Doan stated, “Of all the creatures on Earth, the animals of Africa are some of the most threatened in our world. When I think of the children of future generations, I’m struck by how sad it will be if they never have the possibility of seeing an elephant or a tiger or a hippo in its natural habitat. I believe that Mother Nature intended for ALL of Earth's inhabitants to share our green planet with one another.”
Knowing and appreciating the power of music, Nancy encourages all to use the Wild Child CD and the other “Celebrate Earth” CDs as educational tools to help teach families about the wonders of our planet.
The “Celebrate Earth” series includes-
The fourteen songs on this disc display quality and commitment to making our planet a better place. Celebrate Earth is sure to entertain and educate kids of all ages. The album also has special features for your computer, including a sing-along, profiles of the musicians, and more!
The thirteen songs on this disc were picked for a focus on educating kids about gardening and sustainable farming practices. Like the first disc, Growing Veggie Soup is sure to entertain and educate kids of all ages. Put Growing Veggie Soup in your computer to access exclusive content, including a digital sing-a-long booklet, artist bios, a recipe for veggie soup, and more!
The thirteen songs on this disc were picked for a focus on educating kids about the ocean’s life and habitats. Just like the other discs, Ocean Motion is sure to entertain and educate kids of all ages. Put Ocean Motion in your computer to access exclusive content, including a digital sing-a-long booklet, artist bios, and more!
This album of children’s music highlights the importance of the earth’s rainforests and wildlife, as well as how parents and kids can think about sustaining this vital ecosystem.
Recess Music also has a “BEST FOOT FORWARD” series of albums on their website which encourage social empathy and that helps us realize all human beings can be equipped to appreciate a world that is wise and fair, and generous hearted.
