PBS KIDS Rocks
Last Updated by
We all know PBS KIDS rocks, but now it also rock ‘n’ rolls! PBS KIDS recently released a music album featuring 28 songs that help kids explore topics related to literacy, science, technology, engineering, math and social-emotional learning. Bilingual tunes are also included.
PBS KIDS Rocks features Grammy Award-winners Old Crow Medicine Show, Ozomatli, Los Lobos and They Might Be Giants, along with The Weepies, Best Coast and two-time Parent’s Choice Gold Award-winner SteveSongs, known as “Mr. Steve” on PBS KIDS.
“Research shows that music enhances children’s comprehension and fosters learning in an engaging way,” says Lesli Rotenberg, general manager of Children’s Media at PBS. “PBS KIDS Rocks offers a fun and educational way to extend learning. Through catchy tunes and memorable lyrics, kids can explore a variety of topics – from gravity to vowels to taking turns – anywhere and anytime.”
PBS KIDS will feature the songs as music videos on-air and on digital platforms. In the videos, songs from the album are set to clips from PBS KIDS’ series, including Nature Cat, Peg + Cat, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That, Curious George, Dinosaur Train and Super Why.
PBS KIDS Rocks is available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Spotify. Proceeds from the albums support PBS KIDS educational programming.
