Subject: Youth Librarians: New music CD "Be Creative" for Summer Reading  Program!


I thought I'd drop you a quick note to let you know I just released a brand new CD all about artistic expression and creativity. The CD is inspired by the summer reading program theme and is called "Be Creative @ Your Library". We're really excited about it. It's already my best selling CD to date and is now in it's fourth pressing - in the few short weeks since it's been available!
My new CD "Be Creative @ Your Library" is filled with 21 fun songs and stories about creativity and educational songs about artistic expression. Our goal was to engage an audience ages 1-10. Song titles include: "Be Creative (At Your Library)", "Open A Book", "C.R.E.A.T.I.V.I.T.Y", "Let Your Colors Show", "Painting A Picture Today" and 15 more! The album also includes "The Fill In The Blanks Song" which is a mad libs game where children create their own wacky lyrics to our tune.
I encourage you to visit our website: www.SummerReadingProgramCD.com - you can take an audio tour of the entire CD, check out artwork, see the track listing, read testimonials, find easy ordering information and hear samples of all 21 songs with commentary on our website. The CD is on sale now for $15 and will be shipped the same day your order is placed...we guarantee your CD will arrive just in time for this summer.
I hope you take the time to preview this CD and that you add it to your summer plans. It will be a great time to let young imaginations soar...through the inspiration found at a local library!

Very cordially,
  Conductor Jack
