    These are really cute. I can just imagine Brianna dancing and singing with these tunes…*G*

    I would just like to go on record as saying, “IT’S NOT FAIR!!”

    Why Oh WHY didn’t we get to have cool kids songs when my kids were little?!

    But noooo, we had Sharon, Lois, and Bram’s Elephant Show and Teddy Ruxpin’s Love Songs tape for our older kids, and then the next two had *shudder* Barney. The only advantage was that I didn’t have to learn many of the songs since most have been around for decades.

    The only two cool kids songs tapes (yes, I said tapes, shut up) I can remember were ones that I loved but my kids couldn’t care less about– “Mad About the Mouse”, “Country Does Disney” and Kenny Loggins’ “Songs from Pooh Corner”

    lol, Bev. There really is some cool kids’ music out now. I don’t even mind listening to a lot of it (though I don’t go so far as to listen to it when Brianna’s NOT in the car!). But that’s not to say we don’t have our share of annoying music. And I had to ban the Christmas CDs from being played in the car year round, because she LOVES those CDs. She can listen to them November through January and no more. I guess I should tell her they’re fair game again…

    I’m with BevQB–the music is catchy and the guys are cute, there wasn’t anything like that with my kids.

    On the Xmas music 😀 I’m with Brianna, I can listen to it year round.

    My four-year-old LOVES The Laurie Berkner Band and Audra Rox, but he’s also a big fan of Conway Twitty’s version of “Rocky Top” and Little Richard’s “Long Tall Sally”.

    My own children are grown but my grandchildren love music.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
