A World of Happiness: Book & CD
A World of Happiness is a delightful book and CD collection of rich and diverse musical entertainment for young children and the grown-ups in their lives. Led through this special world by engaging characters such as "Knowa' the Cat" and "Lady Leo-Lani" the ladybug, children will discover A World of Happiness through the inspiring stories and toe-tapping, thoughtful songs.
With the lyrics and sheet music for each song on the CD included, each age-appropriate chapter focuses on a positive, universal character trait and contains a related "Happiness Activity" for children and grown-ups to explore together. For teachers, there are accompanying music lesson plans designed and developed by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME). A bonus full-color map of A World of Happiness is also included.
The accompanying award-winning CD features performances by Deborah Harry, Perry Farrell, Magic Johnson, Gary Oldman, Isaac Hayes, and more! Each of the wonderful performers on the recording truly believes that the world can be a better place and that it all begins with children.
