Alastair Moock: Be a Pain: An Album for Young (and Old) Leaders

To honor the power of youth to make positive change, Grammy-nominated Boston songwriter Alastair Moock will release a rootsy and inclusive album. Be a Pain is a rallying cry for young (and old) leaders in these turbulent times. It looks to the heroes of our past (Dr. King, Harvey Milk, Billie Jean King, Pete Seeger, Cesar Chavez, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X) and our present (Malala Yousafzai, the Parkland student protestors, climate change marchers) to inspire our kids to move the ball forward. Guests include Sol y Canto, Reggie Harris and Rani Arbo.

Tune into Facebook Live for free performances by Alastair Mock during the pandemic school shutdown.

José-Luis Orozco: Muévete! Songs for a Healthy Mind in a Healthy Body

This album of 18 bilingual tracks (9 in English, 9 in Spanish) promotes fitness for children ages 1 to 7. It is the perfect complement to Orozco's Grammy-nominated Smithsonian Folkways album, ¡Come Bien! Eat Right!, which promotes good eating habits and offers a complete picture of healthy living for young children.

Danny Weinkauf: Dinosaurs & Metaphors

Grammy Award-winning artist and longtime bassist for They Might Be Giants Danny Weinkauf is back with his 5th album for children and families, Dinosaurs and Metaphors. The album takes listeners through the day with plenty of imagination, humor and clever wordplay. I just have to say I am a huge fan of They Might Be Giants and it has been a pleasure to carryover that connection with Danny Weinkauf to his kindie rock music that I've been able to enjoy with my children as they've grown up.

Themes of the 15 original songs in Dinosaurs and Metaphors run the gamut of everyday life, from the joy of a lazy Saturday morning to a celebration of Monday. Kids who are enduring a haircut or the hiccups or even bugs on the toilet will find comedic relief here, and they’ll laugh along at the offbeat language lessons of “Your Love Is a Metaphor” or the idea of “Dinosaurs on Roller skates.” The album finishes with a raucous and affirmative rock anthem, “Superstar.”

For a chance to win this three album prize pack just complete the Rafflecopter entries below before 11:59pm ET on April 19, 2020. Must be a United States resident over 18 years old to participate in this promotion. One winner will be randomly selected from all eligible entries. Good luck!
