Subject: Kids'CD/songbook from Teaching Tolerance
I Will Be Your Friend--Songs and Activities for Young Peacemakers is a new songbook/workbook/CD for elementary schools, produced by Teaching Tolerance, an ongoing project of the Southern Poverty Law Center. It's available for free to teachers and schools. The project organizers, led by Minneapolis singer/songwriter/teacher Larry Long, collected over 3000 songs and chose 26, by people like Woody Guthrie (a song performed by Arlo), Pete Seeger, Malvina Reynolds, Bob Blue, and Sally Rogers, along with classroom activities helping kids learn about tolerance and diversity. It's a very impressive project. Click here for more info, clips, and how to order.
Oh...and here's the really cool part. One of my songs is in there, too!
