Kindermusik International and Reading Rainbow, two of the most trusted brands in childhood education, are partnering to bring more ways for children and parents to learn together. Beginning in March, the Reading Rainbow app will include Music Mountain, featuring Kindermusik!

Reading Rainbow’s app hosted by LeVar Burton, guides children on a reading adventure to themed “islands,” each filled with hundreds of children’s books and video field trips. With the addition of “Music Mountain,” (named with the help of the Kindermusik community!) a limited selection of Kindermusik’s music-themed eBooks and videos will be featured alongside other newly produced and music-themed content from Reading Rainbow.

WHY MUSIC? – CELEBRITY QUOTES

“An educational foundation is only part of the equation. In order for creativity to flourish and imagination to take hold, we also need to expose our children to the arts from a very young age.” -First Lady Michelle Obama

“We need to ensure that our children have both knowledge and imagination. I know I want that for my girls. They deserve to have access to a good education and access to ideas and images that will spark their creativity.” -First Lady Michelle Obama

“If children are not introduced to music at an early age, I believe something fundamental is actually being taken from them.” -singer Luciano Pavarotti

It was a simple concept, really, this idea for a WE LOVE KINDERMUSIK Week. It was born out of an increasing recognition of just how many of us – educators, children, and families – have been touched by being a part of something that’s more than just a curriculum or a weekly activity. The idea came to life as we reflected on just how much love there is for Kindermusik and how meaningful it would be to set aside a week to come together and purposefully delight in all that Kindermusik is and means to all of us.

With this one annual specially designated week, we will be able to publicly and corporately give voice to that light in a child’s eye, that song in her heart, that little person just waiting to blossom – to acknowledge all those precious, miraculous moments we as Kindermusik educators are privileged to nurture and celebrate with our Kindermusik families each and every week. Simply put, WE LOVE KINDERMUSIK WEEK is a small way we can raise up together to celebrate the wonder and magic that is uniquely Kindermusik. Read more
