Speaking for the Foundation, Claire Green said: “Parents’ Choice Award winning musicians and storytellers share a common bond; they know what it takes to grab and keep a child’s attention. Those who write original songs and stories deliver intelligent, inventive lyrics; they craft and tell a captivating story, in words and music. They create magical worlds that kids believe – and want to live in – if even for only a few minutes. Their stories and songs may be imaginary; their creativity and talent is anything but. Those who perform traditional songs or stories do so with a fresh approach and a personal imprint. Serious or silly, the material is delivered with a respect for the audience and the medium.”
In the past few years, the stage of children’s music has become the place to be. Accessible and affordable technology has made it easier than ever to produce and distribute a CD. The sheer number of titles released has burgeoned. With inappropriate media just clicks away, parents are hungry for trustworthy information about quality children’s media. Parents’ Choice has been providing independent reviews of children’s media and toys for almost three decades.
