Share! CD Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Ok, it's official--I really love this CD!  "Hot on the heels of its 2012 Parents Choice Gold Award winning album, Someone Else's Shoes, Recess Music, a company dedicated to helping kids value a world that is wise, fair, and generous hearted, looks forward to the March 26 release of Share!, the fourth in its "Best Foot Forward" series of CDs--Someone Else's Shoes, Big Bully, and U R SOME 1."
It just so happens that sharing has actually become a hot topic in our home lately.  My 18-month-old girl has recently turned away from her openly sharing attitude and has become very territorial over things and not in the sharing mood at all.  I've been so frustrated dealing with her acting out and sad to see my sweet girl turn so grumpy.  I know it is something very common for children her age to go through, which is why I am trying to teach her the best way I can, just how awesome and important sharing is.  But the topic of sharing is not just something I am working at with my youngest, I have been teaching all of my kids, and even learning myself at just how powerful and meaningful generosity and sharing are!
"All the songs on the Share! CD celebrate sharing and generosity as key actions for bringing harmony and understanding into classrooms, neighborhoods, and homes. The album features 15 tracks that showcase contributions by some of today's most gifted kids' musicians, including Renee & Jeremy, Dog on Fleas, Ben Rudnick & Friends, Charity and the JAMband, and Noel Paul Stookey ("Paul" of the legendary folk-singing trio Peter, Paul and Mary). In 2013 Recess Music's "Best Foot Forward" series is all about generosity and gratitude. Recess Music's founder/producer Nancy Doan explains that, with Share!, she decided to focus on sharing because, 'Children are not born with an innate concept of sharing; instead, generosity is something we learn. Very young children do not want to share their toys or their Mommy or their food. The only way little ones learn to share is through the encouragement and examples of the adults in their lives.'
Listening to the Share! album was not only insightful, but it was truly such a fun experience.  I fell in love with so many of the songs on the album, which featured everything from the sweet and simple to rockin and rollin.  It's an all around GREAT CD with lots to offer!
