Product Description

GrooveKidNationGroove Kid Nation continues its award-winning music education series with a third release Rhythm Bears. Producer Rodney Lee once again recruits top L.A. musicians and heads deep into the woods to create a soulful folk hoedown.  As the title suggests, Rhythm Bears is all about drawing kids into the music with rhythmic call and response games that will have them clapping, stomping, playing percussion, and vocalizing to the beat. 

In addition, a band of groovy bears open childrens’ ears to a whole new set of musical instruments including harmonica, fiddle, acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, clarinet, kalimba, ukulele, and even didgeridoo. Each song features a new instrument, and the enclosed 10-page booklet features colorful illustrations of each Rhythm Bear. 
rodney leeGroove Kid Nation is the brainchild of veteran record producer and keyboardist, Rodney Lee.  He has over 20 years of experience in the music business and after the birth of his son and not finding what he was looking for, as far as music for his son was concerned, he went to work creating this new children’s music.  Rodney is just a father and musician who set out to make some cool educational music for his son.  So Groove Kid Nation was born out of love and continues to support children by donating 10% of the wholesale price of this CD to  CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting poverty.  The company says, “If you and your children enjoy it that’s great, and if in the process we can help kids all around the world born into circumstances far less fortunate than our own — well what could be better than that?!”
In My Opinion
I believe music is essential when it comes to education our children.  I am a homeschool mom with three children currently schooling at home.  I started them off listening to music before they were even born.  Then I was played classical music for them as infants.  I have one child in Homeschool band currently and another will be joining her next year and by the time the youngest is 6 or 7 I will have them all three in homeschool band. There have been numerous reports on the affects of music and the development of children’s brains and their learning and I haven’t seen one negative yet.  I think it is also a great outlet for children and something they can enjoy for their entire lives.  Who better to assist us in teaching our children than another parent that has created something out of the love for his child to share with all children.
I put this CD in and it was an instant hit! I drove along smiling watching my boys 6 and 4.5  bee-bopping along in the back of the van. Heads bobbing and hands clapping. Their favorite songs are “The Why Song” and “I Do But I Don’t” and “This Old Bear”.
****Just listen and preview these songs for yourself.****
They love the rhythm of the music and the interactions they call for.  The song , “This Old Bear”, is a lot like the song “This Old Man” but it has a more modern beat to it and had my son singing along while it introduces them to different instruments.  The “I Do But I Don’t” song is just funny and fast paced with only a few words so they start singing along right away. I think “The Why Song” really got their little minds thinking about things in a different way. I think this is a great learning tool for young children as do others as their awards keep rolling in!
