Happy Earth Day

The 40th anniversary of Earth Day in the United States is always celebrated on April 22nd.  Did you know that some people celebrate Earth Day on the first day of spring?  Earth Day, whatever day you celebrate it, is an important day when we make a special effort to be aware that we must take care of our Earth and our wildlife.  Of course, we can and must appreciate and protect our world every day!  How will you do that?  Will you recycle and pick up litter? Will you plant a garden?  Play outside, take a walk, be mindful of and enjoy nature?

 More facts:  Earth Day inspired the passage of The Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act.  Earth Day was adopted by the United Nations in 2009, and is now celebrated around the world in 190 countries!

GO GREEN! is a best-selling CD from Kimbo featuring songs that are fun and will inspire children to connect to the Earth and be responsible for the Earth.  Filled with action kids will love and wonderful singable songs, the CD will motivate children to be involved and aware.  The comprehensive resource guide, by Dr. Pam Schiller, includes creative activities and literature links that reinforce the important purpose of this kid-friendly CD.

You can also enjoy Save the Animals and Save the Earth, What’s In the Sea?, and Songs About Insects, Bugs & Squiggly Things.  Music makes learning more memorable and facts more fun!

Spring has Sprung

Spring is a season of re-growth, of baby animals, flowers in bloom and green grass, butterflies and bees, fresh fruits and vegetables at nearby farm stands and, sunshine and rain.  Longer days, warmer temperatures and blue skies encourage us to play outdoors, plant flowers and tend our gardens, exercise more, visit parks, have picnics, fly kites, and walk our dogs. 
In spring, the axis of the Earth tilts closer to the sun.  Each season of the year lasts for 3 months, the spring season usually occurs in in the Northern Hemisphere in March, April and May. There are special holidays in the spring, such as St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Passover, and Cinco de Mayo (the 5th of May).

Kimbo CDs celebrate spring and springtime holidays with songs found on Holiday Songs for All Occasions, Holiday Piggyback Songs, and Go Green!

I Had a Dream

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., had a dream.  He dreamed of freedom, justice and equality for all.  He dreamed of brotherhood.  Dr. King became famous because he worked tirelessly and sacrificed for what he believed.  His words became famous too, and we remember them today.  He received the highly esteemed Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.

We commemorate Martin Luther King Day on January 21, 2013 this year.  It is a National holiday to recognize the service of this great man and honor his life.  He was born on January 15, 1929.
Martin Luther King, Jr., was an advocate of a non-violent approach to making the changes he dreamed of.  Perhaps this would be a good day to think about promoting peaceful approaches to working and playing with others and eradicating bullying.  There are all types of bullying.  Define bullying and discuss what you can do to help eliminate it.  You may find you are a witness to bullying; you may experience bullying, or even be part of bullying others.  Talk about how you can help stop bullying.  What can you do, and who can help you?
To honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., Americans in all 50 states will celebrate a National Day of Service on January 19.  How will you volunteer your time?
How will you remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his heartfelt, powerful vision of peace and justice?  How will you help build bridges of kindness and of understanding?
