Growing Sound, is a brand new, one-of-a-kind resource providing parents with children's music that incorporate findings from child development research. There are songs for infants to school age children written and produced by Cincinnati talent and CCM graduate David Kisor who has vast experience with impactful children's songs.

Growing Sound is an on-going celebration of positive growth through songs, books and videos. Children have fun singing while parents help their children develop skills for school readiness. Growing Sound enhances every child's natural growth and development and is also useful for children who have developmental and behavioral concerns. The materials stimulate growth in all areas of the child's life; including social-emotional skills, learning skills, and literacy.
Growing Sound songs, books and videos are available in traditional formats as well as electronic downloads, making them easy to use at home, in the car and at school. The Growing Sound songs can be purchased and downloaded immediately from shop.childreninc.org. Or, if you prefer, a CD can be mailed to you.
Tom Lottman, Deputy Director of Children, Inc. and Director of Growing Sound, states that, "Music is a powerful learning tool. Early in life children internalize powerful 'self-talk' about themselves, other people and the world in general. This self-talk can be very positive or very negative. Through positive self-talk songs like, 'I Can Do It,' we help children internalize self-talk of confidence and competence."
