U R Some 1 CD Review...

"Recess Music, a company dedicated to helping kids value a world that is wise, fair, and generous hearted, looks forward to the October 18 release of U R Some 1, the second in its “Best Foot Forward” series of CDs. U R Some 1 joins Recess Music’s recently released Big Bully in launching the “Best Foot Forward” series.

All the songs on U R Some 1 highlight self-esteem as a key ingredient for living in harmony with others by celebrating the concept that “there is no one quite like you, and you are perfect just the way you are!” This happy, upbeat album also affirms for kids that all humans are “the same & different AND different & the same.” U R Some 1’s musical adventure in self-awareness includes 12 tracks that showcase contributions by a sampling of today’s most gifted kids’ musicians, including Peter Himmelman, Anna Moo, and Katherine Dines."

About Nancy Doan:
"While experiencing a multi-faceted life as a mother, wife, and minister, Nancy Doan became convinced of the need to make the world a better place through a two-fold approach: sustaining our environment and teaching kindness. Because music held a prominent place in both her own childhood and her experiences as a mother, Nancy developed an appreciation of the power of music as an educational tool. When the onset of systemic lupus erythematosus dictated a career change, she cast about for a way to continue to serve the causes to which she had dedicated her life. This search ultimately led to the creation of Recess Music, as a company dedicated to the twin goals of environmental awareness and social empathy through its “Celebrate Earth” and “Best Foot Forward” series of recordings."

What we thought:  This CD is fantastic and our new favorite!  It is a compilation of some of the best children's music artists out there and the variety is awesome:)  These upbeat and laid back tunes are the perfect tools to teach your little ones that they are special and an important part of this world.  The tracks range from jazzy to big band to country and everything in between.  These songs teach lessons, get the kids moving and grooving and most important build self-esteem in a super fun way.  We are really loving this CD and listen to it at least once a day.  What a great way to show your children they are perfect just the way they are!  ABCD Diaries gives U R Some 1 an A+!!

Buy It: U R Some 1 will be available online at, and its international affiliates, iTunes, and brick and mortar retailers throughout the U.S.
