an Education/Outreach Division aimed at creating learning materials
for schools and families. Their first educational "kit" publication
and compilation CD entitled "World Playground: A Multicultural
World Music Adventure for Kids" has received a NAPPA Gold, Parent's
Choice and "Best of" from Scholastic. The globetrotting musical
adventure takes students on a trip around the world with hands-on,
cross-cultural activities, student "passport journals," a music
CD and world map teaching materials.
