Musical Frog Holds Secret to Smarter Kids!

While there's nothing new about kids loving music, science involving music and the brain proves that learning music early in life enhances brain development. 
In the fantastical Freddie the Frog® 4-book series (hardcover with companion CD; $23.95 each) detailed below, preschool through elementary-age children learn musical concepts while they are duly immersed in Freddie's colorfully illustrated adventures.
Now a nationally beloved fictional children's book character, Freddie the Frog has become the mascot of music education for kids. Developed and authored by music teacher and speaker Sharon Burch, these  books and companion CDs provide an accessible, entertaining and highly effective form of literature-based music education that kids absolutely love.

The Freddie the Frog 4-Book Series
Book/CD 1: Freddie the Frog and the Thump in the Night
This book introduces emergent readers to fundamental music concepts in a fun and exciting way. In it, Freddie is a frog who lives with his parents on Treble Clef Island. He is awakened in the middle of the night by a strange thumping noise. Frog-eating crocodiles, a swinging rope bridge, and a humongous gray monster are all part of Freddie’s adventure as he explores the island in search of the thump. Through Freddie’s adventures on the island, the reader is introduced to the treble clef staff as a map of where Freddie lives. Readers are captivated as the staff comes to life with the combination of illustrations and enclosed CD narration and music. A bonus of two sing-a-long songs, “Froggie Went A-Courtin” and “Eli’s Hokey Pokey”, sung by Freddie and his friend, Eli, are included on the CD.
