What a Wonderful World music book by Kidioke Media

Posted by Kidioke on 2/7/2017

The benefits of reading and listening to music for children are undeniable. According to KidsHealth.org, “...early introduction to music does more than entertain. It can kick-start learning, serve as an important cue in a child’s routine, and offer lifelong benefits. Music contributes to what experts call “a rich sensory environment.” This simply means exposing kids to a wide variety of tastes, smells, textures, colors, and sounds… Between the ages of 1 and 3, kids respond best to music when they actively experience it. Passive listening (like in the car) is fine, but look for opportunities to get your child rocking, marching, rolling, tapping, clapping, and moving to the beat.”

Just watched the movie Joy and feeling reinvigorated to follow my dreams as an “inventor” of sorts for Kidioke Media. Like the woman portrayed in Joy, I too have had multiple ideas throughout the years and it was really interesting to see that after all those years she had kept inventing and patenting these really successful products. It was even cooler to see that the mop the movie centered around was one that I owned in college. On a side note I have to say the mop kind of stunk in my opinion however I did find it cool enough to buy so who am I to say. But I digress.

So here we are coming up on the third quarter since my books arrived and the first round of royalties have been mailed out. Advances were satisfied rather quickly which I’m very happy about because that means a lot of books were sold. Lullabye is not performing quite as well as Wonderful World and My Girl but I expected that. When I started Kidioke I had no idea what Lullabye was. It wasn’t until my friend told me it would make a good song did I recognize its appeal. I’ve always been a huge Billy Joel fan but that song didn’t get much air play at least not that I can remember. I actually think the app video and the story it tells is far better than my other two titles. Just a side note if you’re debating which one to get.
