Chicago (April 1, 2018)— Who hasn’t noticed their child, or any child zoned out in front of a digital screen? But trying to police and protect children from screen time is unquestionably one of the most confusing and frustrating responsibilities of good parenting.

 

If you’re parent, a pediatrician or a counselor and screens are something that worry you, Nicole Dreiske’s “The Upside of Digital Devices: How to Make Your Child More Screen Smart, Literate, and Emotional Intelligent,” (HCI Books, $15.95, ISBN 9780757320477, May 1, 2018) is the book that can change things. It is a moving, persuasive and informative companion that walks adults through the process of teaching children healthy screen habits for the modern digital world:

 

  • Pertinent facts about neuroscience and screen time in straight-forward, parent-friendly language.
  • Simple steps that allow children to build their own “filters and controls”.
  • Metacognition boosters – how to help children notice and understand their thoughts and feelings about their experiences with digital devices.
  • Myriad ways to build a child’s literacy skills while watching Youtube, TV, movies or playing games.
  • A tutorial on using energy and concentration during screen time.
  • Priming the mental pump – guidelines for parents before they press “play”.
  • How to enhance a child’s vocabulary, empathy, communication and critical thinking skills through talking about what they’re watching.
  • Turn mindless viewing into mindful viewing by teaching kids to approach screens with intention and focus.

The Upside of Digital Devices” marks both a turning point in American parenting and a turning point in the whole parenting paradigm around screens.

Available for preorder at https://www.amazon.com/Upside-Digital-Devices-EmotionallyIntelligent/dp/0757320473, the book will be released in stores and online May 1, 2018.

Two New Albums in Award-Winning Series of

 “Happy KidsSongs” by Dr. Mac & Friends

 

“Gratitude & Kindness” and “Greatest Hits Ages 2-5″

Now Available for Download

HappyKidsSongsGratitudeandKindness

 

 

SANTA BARBARA, CA (June 22, 2016) – Thousands of parents and teachers worldwide have discovered “Happy Kids©Songs” by Dr. Mac & Friends, an award-winning children’s music collection that helps kids build character, social and emotional skills. Two, new albums in the series, “Gratitude & Kindness” and “Greatest Hits Ages 2-5,” are now available for download.

 

“Happy Kids Songs” feature professional child and adult singers, a wide variety of musical styles, and dozens of different musical instruments. Parents, teachers, and children of all ages love the albums not only for their entertainment value, but for their educational messages.

 

One of the most powerful songs on the “Gratitude & Kindness” album is “Stand Up,” a rap song that empowers kids to speak up whenever they witness bullying: (Stand up and speak your mind/Go stand up and say ‘No, it’s never okay to be unkind/ Enough’s enough, let’s draw the line/It’d do a world of good, if everybody could stand up for each other/This time … stand up.) Extensive research shows that when kids laugh or stand by when encountering bullying, this supports the behavior, and that the incidence of bullying is drastically reduced when kids speak up.

 

Other standout songs from “Gratitude & Kindness” are the lively “In the Same Boat, “Who Gives a Hoot,” “More Kind” (Whenever I’m with you I’m feeling fine/Whenever I’m in school I wish that kids could be more kind/We push and shove and tease to be first on line/Hope everyone agrees that we could be more kind) and “An Attitude of Gratitude.”

 

“Greatest Hits Ages 2-5” is filled with empowering, fun tunes like “Welcome to the Parade,” the rapping pleaser “The Magic Word,” the delightful ditty “A Totally Yodeling Day” (With a yodel dodle dee/we own a little key/Own a little key to happiness/With a yodel dodle dee/we’ll yodel dodle be/In a yodel dodle deedle doodle day), the reggae-inspired “Clean-up Time,” which encourages little ones to have fun while putting things back where they belong, and for best friends everywhere, the delightful “Together.”

 

 

Previous albums in the “Happy Kids©  Songs” series are “Friends & Sharing,” “Social Skills & Bullying,” “Feeling & Fears,” “Practice & Success,” “Talking & Listening,” “Manners & Characters,” “Happiness & Attitude” and “Respect & Responsibility.”

 

Also available is “The Happy Kids Songs Workbook Hands-On Activities to Build Character, Social and Emotional Skills,” filled with 124 pages of lyrics, coloring pages and games and puzzles designed to provide useful tools for children to learn on their own, as well as encouraging topics for discussion at home or at school.

“”Happy Kids Songs” entertain and also help kids learn important tools for living,” says Dr. Mac. “There may be no more powerful method of learning than through music, and no more important lessons for children than those that focus on character and social and emotional skills.”

The series was named one of Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Children’s Products for 2015 and has received many other awards and honors including KIDS FIRST! endorsement, the iParenting Award, Teacher’s Choice Award and the National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval.

All “Happy Kids Songs” by Dr. Mac & Friends are available for purchase at www.iTunes.com and www.amazon.com for 99¢ each or a five-song album download is $4.95. The “Happy Kids Songs Workbook is available at www.amazon.com for $13.

 Competition 2015 for Children’s Songs

 Emily Arrow

Creates New ‘KidLit Tunes’ Genre of Children’s Music With Release Of Initial Music Series Storytime Singalong

 EmilyArrowStoryTimeSingalongArt

Initial Title Storytime Singalong Volume I

Available on  CD February 19, 2016 from Burnside Distribution

 

Los Angeles, CA (February 4, 2016) – “Make, make, make a mark.  All you gotta do is start.”*  Singer-songwriter Emily Arrow is making her mark in the children’s music industry the best way she knows how, having turned her appreciation and love for singing, children’s stories and art into a new kids’ music genre – KidLit  Tunes  – launching with a new series – Storytime Singalong. The charming album, Emily Arrow: Storytime Singalong Volume I is the first title in the series, which will be available on CD February 19, 2016 from Burnside Distribution.

 

Winner of the 2015 John Lennon Songwriting Competition for her children’s song “The Curious Garden” inspired by Peter Brown’s book, which is included on Storytime Singalong Volume I, the Ohio-born, music teacher-turned-songwriter’s original, whimsical songs are influenced by popular children’s books and are adored by kids, parents and teachers alike.

 

Also included on the CD is “The Dot Song,” which is played on International Dot Day (mid-September) inspired by the classic Peter H. Reynolds storybook The Dot. Available in English and many other languages, the book shares the story of a girl who begins a journey of self-discovery after a caring teacher challenges her to “make her mark.”

 

“To me, picture books have an inherent tune, tone, and rhythm,” says Arrow, creator of KidLit  Tunes, a new children’s music genre. “During my time as an elementary music teacher, I used books in my classroom often. Each one invoked such a musical response in me that I began writing songs about my favorite stories. I love weaving each book’s narrative into a rhymed, interactive song and I use the illustrations as inspiration for the chords and sound palette.”

 

“With Storytime Singalong I created ‘sing-along’ songs that encourage kids, parents, teachers, caregivers, and librarians to enjoy together — through the language of music, the power of words and the beauty and art of book illustrations.”

 

Emily is a graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston and earned her graduate-level teaching certification in Orff-Shulwerk Levels I & II. Following her studies, Emily became a K-6 music teacher at a performing arts-based private elementary school in Los Angeles. During her time teaching, she found that her passion was collaborating with the library, art and technology departments, which led her to her launching  KidLit Tunes combining her love of reading, song writing and performing.

 

Storytime Singalong Volume I is Emily’s debut album in her self-created genre – KidLit Tunes. The songs can be played along with correlating books, creating a truly unique and delightful family or in-school experience. Each tune features simple follow-along lyrics based on bright, bold storybooks, which will entrance even the youngest of listeners and early readers.

 

Of the eleven songs on the CD, seven songs are inspired by books like The Dot Song by Peter H. Reynolds, Louise Loves Art by Kelly Light , The Curious Garden by Peter Brown, Are We There Yet, Yeti? by Ashlyn Anstee,  I Am Yoga, by Susan Verde with illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds, One Day, the End by Rebecca Kai Dotlich, with illustrations by Fred Koehler and I Wish You More by Amy Krouse Rosenthal & Tom Lichtenheld.

 

Four  original tunes by Emily are “Books! Books!,”  ”Poem In Your Pocket,” “Peanut To My Butter” (“You’re the peanut to my butter, the bumble to my bee … the sprinkles on my cupcake … that’s what you are to me.”) and “Follow Your Arrow.”

 

Recommended for ages 2-10, Storytime Singalong Volume I is produced by Nick Goldston, who also provided instrumentation, arranging and background vocals.  The album cover features artwork by author/illustrator Ashlyn Anstee.  The CD will be available in stores February 19, 2016 for a SRP of $12.99, and on amazon.com, iTunes, Spotify and other online outlets.

 

Emily Arrow will be on tour to support the release of Storytime Singalong Volume I beginning in February.  For a tour list, more information or to order the CD please visit www.EmilyArrow.com.
