The prestigious Oppenheim Toy Portfolio group bestowed their highest honor, the Platinum Audio Award to this album Beautiful Baby, Wonderful Child. The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio (www.toyportfolio.com) awards have become a benchmark of excellence with consumers, toy makers and the media. They are the only independent consumer review of children’s media by child development experts. Some of the comments shared by their experts:
“There are some lullaby and quiet time songs along with interactive dance-about tunes. Together they make for a lively listening and doing experience that fit into the day of infants and toddlers. The CD opens with the title song, Beautiful Baby, Wonderful Child and moves on to several other songs that one might call love songs from parent to child. About half the CD is dedicated to action songs that will get toddlers up on their tippy toes and turning round and round. Also charming is a little tune called I Keep A Kiss in My Pocket, that just might make separations a little easier. At the end of the CD there is a reprise of three totally instrumental renditions of three of the quiet tunes introduced earlier. These three will be perfect for a bit of naptime music. “
Growing Sound develops music and other products that translate key findings from recent child development research into practical and entertaining products for teachers, parents, and children. Founded in 2007 as a new venture of Children, Inc., our products stimulate social and emotional development in a way that is fun for young children. While many products focus on managing children’s problem behaviors, Growing Sound is a proactive, strength-based approach to helping children discover the goodness in their lives and in themselves.
As genuine breakthroughs in child development research increase there is a widening gap between what researchers know and what many parents and teachers practice. Parents and teachers want to optimize their child’s development but they lack the time and expertise to digest the growing volume of research. Growing Sound answers this need by providing a line of products that distills the research into practical and fun activities for home and school.
Growing Sounds’ creative productions are led by David Kisor. David is an accomplished singer, songwriter, composer, performer and teacher. David uses his many amazing talents to magically translate research into fun, exciting musical productions. David regularly performs across the country (and internationally) as well as leads trainings for parents/teachers on the power of learning through music.
Children love our products because they are fun. Parents and educators love our products because they help teach children key skills like persistence, initiative and self-control. Growing Sound is committed to putting our products into the hands of as many motivated teachers and parents as possible and to make children here and around the world ready for school and ready for life.
