Album Notes
Have you tried Jonathan's first heroes CD -- American Heroes? Are you craving the next installment? Here it is -- another fun, flawlessly produced, historically accurate collection of, you guessed it, MORE American Heroes!

The style is upbeat rock/folk/pop -- lots of guitars, keyboards, drums and vocals. (Sound alike examples: Jackson Browne, Kenny Loggins with a splash of Jethro Tull and The Who.)

Not Your Typical Sing Songy Kids Music!

Again, Jonathan co-wrote with the best of writers -- Dave Kinnoin (Disney, Henson, Sesame Workshop) and Peter Bliss (NSync, Barbara Streisand, J. Geils, Heart).

Who are the heroes on this CD? The Wright Brothers, Sojourner Truth, Neil Armstrong, Susan B. Anthony, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Robinson, Frederick Douglass, Johnny Appleseed, Tecumseh and Helen Keller.




"An inspiring collection that teaches as it entertains."
School Library Journal

"In a perfect world, Jonathan Sprout's American Heroes series of CDs would be distributed in every classroom. ... (A) treasure trove of historical information ... A marvelous introduction to the lives of history's finest. More American Heroes has found a home in my CD player. ... "Aren't I A Woman," telling the story of Sojourner Truth, is an anthem for all ages and genders.
This is what learning should be -- a joyful musical experience. ... With this series of albums, "failure is impossible."
Kathy O'Connell, Metro Kids, Philadelphia, PA

"Heartfelt songs ... inspirational portraits of men and women who changed American history."
Lynne Heffley, Los Angeles Times

NEA Today

"Another worthy album ... handsome production values ... Not only do kids learn about towering figures of American history here, but they also carry away some valuable life lessons."
Moira McCormick, Family Fun Magazine

"Upbeat, nicely arranged songs ... (with a) beautifully designed caricature cover. Yes, I'd definitely pack this along in my Harry Potter lunch pail."
John Wood, L. A. Parent Magazine

"A sprightly digest of American history that will have kids singing their way to cultural knowledge."
Andrew Bartlett, Children's music editor,

Featured in Teaching Music Magazine

"Snappy tunes and catchy lyrics ... rousing songs about American legends ... Even 8-, 9- and 10-year olds will enjoy Sprout's unique blend of pop and rock, rhythm and blues, and ballads. ... upbeat and uplifting ... anthems for achievement, perseverance, charity and honesty."
The Times, Trenton, NJ

"Chock full of catchy ditties about historical American figures ... the CD offers tons of sing-a-long worthy entertainment that comes in the appealing form of musical history lessons."

Chicago Parent

"Especially ideal for libraries and children to learn the histories of true heroes."
Film Advisory Board, Hollywood, CA

"Jonathan has gone to the heart of what made these people great by the use of his prodigious talent for songwriting and singing. His musicianship shines through on every song as he illuminates the lives of great American Heroes.
Not enough can be said about Jonathan's own contribution to education and learning. With this CD he presents American history and its heroes in a new and intriguing light and debunks the myth that one is too old or too young to learn about this great country and the colorful heroes that made it so."

"One of Bucks County, PA's most fascinating residents ... Jonathan Sprout uses rock & roll to entertain kids and teach them about courageous figures in history."
Bucks County Midweek

"Catchy pop and rock tunes ... Professional lead and backup vocals are easy on the ear, as are thought-provoking lyrics. The songs provide good resource material for American history projects and units on historical figures, here introduced in an imaginative and unique style. A neat resource for elementary and junior high school library collections." Booklist

Love the music! Great way to teach history!
My kindergartener insisted that we get this CD, and I'm so glad he did. Hearing him sing First Man on The Moon, was cute, but his understanding of Neil Armstrong, was amazing. The music is fun and educational, perfect for school-age kids! Thanks Jonathan Sprout!

Super Songs - Rock On............
I purchased Jonathan Sprout: American Heroes CD several years ago when he performed at my elementary school. I have been teaching many of my history lessons using his songs. They are upbeat and educational and my second grade students love them. They have been begging me to look online to see if Jonathan Sprout had "More!" Well, I just ordered Jonathan Sprout: More American Heroes and we're ready to move on to learning about - well "More American Heroes." I highly recommend these CD's to any educator. Believe me, not only are the kids really into History but their parents are very impressed by all the information that these kids are learning. Many parents have mentioned that they are also learning History from these songs. Thanks Jonathan.

Finally! Great music BOTH my son and I love....
I first heard about Jonathan Sprout from my first grader who came home from school one day BEGGING me to get his CD. Jonathan had performed in my son's school that day. After a few weeks of relentless pestering for the CD, I ordered this one and another one from CD Baby. We BOTH love his music. It is uplifting, fun and inspirational. The CDs are in my car where we get the most opportunity to listen to them. We gave 4 more away as birthday gifts. The kids in all grades at school love Jonathan!!!

My 4th graders love your music.
My 4th graders were introduced to the Heroes music after I attended a Core Knowledge Conference In Washington, DC where Mr. Sprout performed some of his songs. We immediately began learning the songs in class and teaching them to our classroom puppets who think the music is out of this world and breaks down all barriers. We have already received two different orders of music that the kids take home and play until their siblings beg them to stop. Not only do we like the music, but we are learning more and sharing more about our American history.
