La Bella Stella- Just in time for Earth Day!
Recess Music, an award-winning company that strives to awaken kids to the magnificence of our planet through albums of Earth-friendly music, looks forward to the March 27 release of “La Bella Stella,” the fifth in its “Celebrate Earth” series of CDs (Big Round Records, $12.99, for ages 4 – 11, run time 41 minutes).
Available in time for Earth Day 2012, “La Bella Stella” goes beyond the Earth to celebrate galaxies, solar systems, and other wonders of our universe with 15 tracks showcasing a variety of contributions by a sampling of today’s most gifted kids’ musicians, including Rocknoceros, Charity and the JAMband, and AudraRox.
The songs on “La Bella Stella” speak especially to those children ages four and up who have quick, engaging minds and an inveterate curiosity about life. The album is filled with music that will encourage kids to think about the natural setting of their lives, providing a much-needed balance to the “virtual” world with which many of them are occupied.
The Recess Music “Celebrate Earth” series seeks to assist the cause of protecting and preserving our environment by donating a portion of the proceeds from each release to a selected environmental organization. A portion of the proceeds from “La Bella Stella” will benefit the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center in Concord, New Hampshire, which is dedicated to educating learners of all ages by actively engaging them in the exploration of astronomy, aviation, Earth and space science. That is awesome! My son just went to the McAuliffe Center on a field trip 2 weeks ago. I’m sure “La Bella Stella” proceeds will help more children get the same experience.
Review by Mom Does Reviews:
“La Bella Stella” is the cutest kid’s music CD I’ve listened to in a long time. I think I was more excited to listen to it than my son. It has a great mix of music from lullabies, to jazz, country, folk and lots of toe-tapping fun! I love how every song makes children think about the what’s in the sky and all around them. My favorite song on the album is “Man in the Moon” by Wayne from Maine. It’s a fun folk song that makes you want to wish it was dark so you could find the Man in the Moon.
My son’s favorite song is “Galaxy Song” by Andy Z. It’s a fun, upbeat song that he loves to sing along with. He loves science and is proud that he knows all the planets and facts about them. The song helps reinforce learning. The whole CD is a learning experience. What better way to learn than through music!
My favorite part of the whole CD is that their charitable donation from La Bella Stella goes to the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center in Concord, New Hampshire! My son and his third grade class just went there on a field trip! Thanks so much, Recess Music, for supporting out children’s educational experiences!
I would highly recommend this CD for children 4 and up!
