About the Album: I Can Do It
2010 Mom's Choice Gold Award Winner: The Mom's Choice Awards® is known for establishing the benchmark of excellence in family-friendly media, products and services. This annual competition recognizes authors, inventors, companies, parents and others for their efforts in creating quality family-friendly media products and services.
2010 Dr. Toy's Best Vacation Product: Dr. Toy’s Best Vacation Products Awards were developed by noted child development authority, Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D. (a.k.a. Dr. Toy), as a service to consumers who desire to purchase safe, affordable, educationally-oriented, and stimulating toys and play products for children for vacation time at home or on the road. Dr. Toy reports that in the years the innovative on-line magazine, Dr. Toy’s Guide, has been available, “thousands of visitors daily from around the world have accessed its information.” It was the first web site to evaluate toys and children’s products. The report is being released, according to Dr. Toy, to “encourage parents and teachers to focus on the value of play during the summer as essential to the overall learning process. She adds, “The Best Vacation Products are a balanced selection from large and small, new and established, companies across the U.S.A., Canada, and overseas will provide children with exciting new learning tools that will help them not only do better in school, but also will provide more constructive activities while traveling or at vacation destinations.” 2010 Creative Child Magazine Preferred Choice Winner: Creative Child magazine's toy awards involve a group of moms and educators who review a variety of children's products and rate their favorites. We were honored to receive three awards from this prestigious group!
Based on Resilience theory research, the songs from this album are specifically designed to help your child build creativity, independence, planning, people skills, optimism, confidence, and problem-solving skills.
When a child has confidence they are more likely to exhibit initiative, thinking and acting independently to meet their own needs. Confidence allows children to engage in the important acts of asking questions, making and carrying out plans, problem solving, using creativity and meeting new people and tasks with optimism.
