It’s never too early for kids to start learning about American History!
When I was in high school, American History was a required subject in our junior year in order to graduate. I passed the first time around – however, I do know some who had to repeat the course a second time.
I’ve had the opportunity to review Jonathan Sprout’s newest CD, AMERICAN HEROES #3. Jonathan Sprout is being touted by the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences for his album and had been nominated for the GRAMMY Awards in the “Best Children’s Album” category. He’s done over 6,000 performances for children across the country, as well as received numerous national parenting awards.
The CD features upbeat songs about historical figures such as:
- Jane Addams
- George Washington Carver
- Jonas Salk
- Cesar Chavez
- Milton Hershey
- Thomas Jefferson
- Wilma Rudolph
I played the CD for the grandkids, who are 1 and 3. ‘Lil Moomette really enjoyed listening to the story of Pocohontas. While my grandchildren are pre-schoolers, I think that it’s a wonderful way to introduce older children who are at least school-age to history through music.
Sprout serves up children’s music and a history lesson, all rolled into one! Why not educate our kids while entertaining them too?
Home school Moms – this CD would be a terrific way to introduce the kids to some American Heroes that they may not be familiar with!
