LOS ANGELES, Calif., June 6, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — From the names of the presidents to the story of the US flag and much more, the history of the United States is celebrated in many children’s songs of the late Ruth Roberts.
“These sing-along songs are primarily aimed at children in grades K-6,” states Susan Nicoletti, Director of Operations for Goldenrod Music and Michael Brent Publications, the publishing companies that oversee Roberts’ songs. “We’re also finding that these collections of songs are very popular with special needs children as well as their parents and teachers,” Nicoletti notes.
Album collections include “Learning the Presidents,” “Tall Tom Jefferson,” “That’s What it Means to be Free,” “I Remember Martin Luther King, Jr.,” “Our Country ’tis of Thee,” “Betsy Ross and the First American Flag,” and several more.
“While these tunes are often called ‘classic,’ we’re pleased to have them all available in digital format on iTunes along with the usual CD format available on the Ruth Roberts Music site,” says Nicoletti. “Children love learning as they sing along with these funny and often pun-filled songs. Plus, they are all G-Rated,” Nicoletti states, referencing her five years as a member of the ratings board for the Motion Picture Association of America.
