Music Review: The Hero in You by Ellis Paul

I think it’s really important to teach my children about historical figures past and present that have and are making an impact on the lives of those around them. Award winning children’s music artist Ellis Paul also felt greatly about this need to be shared not only to his own daughter’s but to other familes and came out with a great new music CD called “The Hero in You” which is the first in a planned series focusing on heroes of all kinds.

This is not the first but a second soon to be well loved family music album available by Ellis Paul. The Hero in You in fact, follows The Dragonfly Races, Paul’s best-selling and award-winning 2007 family music album. This cd is a real treat and not only includes a great number of songs but also a colorful keepsake booklet featuring Paul’s illustrations.

There are fourteen tracks total on this CD and songs about people like Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Jackie Robinson, Woody Guthrie, and Rosa Parks, and some are not as familiar, but just as noteworthy for their accomplishments. I enjoyed learning through song and am thrilled to be able to share this important inspiring musical collection with my children in a fun and inviting way!

This is a great CD for the family. You’ll not only be encouraging and teaching your children about important people of all kinds but it will send the message that your children can go out and do big things too! I highly recommend this cd for home and classroom use!
