Listening Lounge: La Bella Stella Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Sunday April 22nd is Earth Day and just in time for the celebration, Recess Music has released the fifth installment in their "Celebrate Earth" CD series-- La Bella Stella.
La Bella Stella is a wonderful addition to the Celebrate Earth series of albums which explores the magnificence of our great planet through music.  The La Bella Stella album allows children to explore everything from Earth to the galaxies beoynd.  The joyous songs pay tribute to all of the wonders of our universe through great kid-friendly rhythms, beats, and lyrics!  Not to mention that a terrific mix of musicians and bands contribute to the La Bella Stella CD including Rocknoceros, Charity and the JAMband, and AudraRox--with each artist adding their own muscial renditions to encourage kids to think about their surroundings.
I really enjoyed listening to the album, teaching my kids more about our earth, the different planets, and galaxies.  I like how the music is uplifting, unique, and this wasn't your typical children's album.  La Bella Stella delivers education, entertainment, engagement, and value to young ones.  Oh and one of my favorite uses for the album since it has so many songs about stars, the moon, galaxies, etc. is to use it as soothing lullabyes at night--it works perfectly!
(From a Press Handout) "The Recess Music 'Celebrate Earth' series seeks to assist the cause of protecting and preserving our environment by donating a portion of the proceeds from each release to a selected environmental organization.   A portion of the proceeds from La Bella Stella will benefit the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center in Concord, New Hampshire, which is dedicated to educating learners of all ages by actively engaging them in the exploration of astronomy, aviation, Earth and space science."
