Big Bully CD Review and Giveaway...
"Recess Music, a company dedicated to helping kids value a world that is wise, fair, and generous hearted, has launched its “Best Foot Forward” series of CDs with Big Bully, an album featuring songs by such kids music luminaries as Milkshake, The Hipwaders and Renee & Jeremy.
The folks at Recess Music hope that Big Bully will help to encourage discussion among parents, children, and educators about harmony, understanding, social justice, and global peace, as well as the particular challenges caused by the unfortunate presence of intimidation and bullying behavior on our social landscape.
One could consider Recess Music’s “Best Foot Forward” series as the musical complement to a hip, up-to-date, and entirely relevant “course in manners” that reinforces a profound subtext and encourages kids to be the very best they can be. Almost all children really want to have friends and be good playmates, but to achieve these objectives they must learn key social structures and conventions, such as how to say, “I’m sorry” or how to live by the rule of “no put-downs” toward others. Big Bully presents songs promoting these healthy, positive ideas by asking the question “Why can’t we just be friends?” The album also provides a good antidote to the violence and bad manners that permeate so many video games and television shows."
What we thought: This was a really fun and eclectic mix of music that really promotes positive behaviour towards others, teaches manners, and explains bullying to children. We have really been enjoying this CD and A has even asked to take it to school to share with her classmates. They have been learning about bullying and this would be the perfect complement to that lesson. Big Bully is a fun and entertaining learning tool that kiddos will surely love! ABCD Diaries gives Big Bully an A+!
