Product Notes

BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE: FOCUS ON HAPPINESS is Volume 2 in the Best of Broadway and Beyond: Health Series by children's entertainer and health professional, Pennie Sempell, with Gerald Mitchell and a cast of children. Music all ages will enjoy, and especially for 2-8+. Winner of The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval 2009 "This three-in-one set of audio CD's impressed our testers not only with the quality of the production but the scope of it's research and informative content...Each one is designed to subtly give kids a greater understanding about their well-being as a whole concept. This includes physical, mental and social well-being. Pennie Sempell uses music, specifically Broadway and other similar styled sing-along songs to deliver her message. There are relaxation exercises, activities and quite a bit more. Teachers will also find an Instructional Guide with complete lesson plans." "Over many years as a School Psychologist, Special Education and K-4 teacher, I have reviewed many resources for children. I enthusiastically recommend the 'Best of Broadway and Beyond: Health Series" without reservation and with high praise for teachers, therapists, parents, and grandparents. Teachers will find many health areas covered in this exceptional program, with complete lesson plans. I have done a test sample of my grandsons ages 2, 4, and 6. We all enjoyed the lively songs and exercises. I think it is the most outstanding program I have seen." Dr. Susan Doherty, Ed.D., MFT, LEP Sacramento/San Francisco, CA Awarded The Dove Foundation "Family Approved" Seal "Three ingenious CDs that contain enlightening information for your children regarding their well being. This set brings together the sounds of Broadway music and old fashioned radio show format, education on health, happiness and relationships. There is an amazing combination of information that will be helpful to everyone in their lives. These CDs are not only educational but entertaining too." "All three (CDs) are not only perfect for families to share, but also a welcome addition to public library and audiobook shelves. Highly recommended." Midwest Book Review "These are happy songs for kids on health issues, done in a radio talk show format. My 18-month-old is definitely too young to be the target market, but if we don't have this CD playing, she'll walk over to the stereo and push the buttons to make it play or point and say, "uhhh uhhh uhhh", which I'm pretty sure means, "Play my favorite CD!" If you're looking for happy music for kids without the commercialization of a lot of kids music, this is a good choice." D. Teten, Entrepreneur/Parent, New York, NY "Fabulous job." Nancy Carteron, MD, San Franciso, CA "Sophia loved your "Best Things In Life" CD. She started smiling as soon as it came on. She especially loves Grandma's Feather Bed. There is so much more she will get out of it soon, but since she is only 2 years old right now she just enjoys hearing the kids voices and responds so well to the music. Thank you Gerald and Pennie. We will be listening to it for years. E. Gruhl, RN, Nurse/Parent "The Best of Broadway and Beyond: Health Series is an engaging, entertaining, detailed set of practical instructional guides in the development of social, emotional and physical well-being for children and the adults who care for them." James E. Monroe, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, Eugene OR "Using delightful radio-style conversations, the Best of Broadway and Beyond: Health Series is an excellent curriculum support for pre-k and primary grade children. You will find yourself singing along with this engaging musical approach to introducing health and emotional well-being topics that are developmentally appropriate." A. Brown, M.A., Teacher, San Francisco, CA School Library Journal, June 2009 'PreS-Gr3- Pennie Sempell, a health professional, and Gerald Mitchell, a nutrition and fitness specialist, present 21 Broadway, Hollywood and vaudeville classics in a call-in radio show format. In between the songs, they offer advice to youngsters' questions about health, relationships and happiness topics. This series will enhance the health and music curriculum.'
