Caroline and Danny's opening session performance was not only a lively
audience participation event, but also a very effective way of demonstrating
the power we have as school counselors to "teach tolerance" to children as a
contra-positive method of allaying the negative effects of bigotry and violence..
Jim Bergin/Georgia School Counselor Association president
The songs are upbeat and teach the importance of being a responsible and
caring individual who values themselves, others and the environment. This
program is an enjoyable way for educators to instill a strong sense of values
while meeting the expectations of the academic curriculum…

of a universal vision of fairness and integrity in teaching children about
relationships, while touching people as individuals in special needs as well
as typical populations...

entertainers, educators and performers who delight audiences of all ages.

adult audiences, giving them an unforgettable experience…

You will be impressed by the selection of music, verse, and movement which makes personal communication links to each member of the audience - regardless of age or language. These artists demonstrate the ease of integrating positive character
development into all curriculum content areas. Large group presentation, teacher professional development, or multiple workshop settings are appropriate for this
creative instructional program…

District, Marietta, Georgia
The students and teachers thoroughly enjoyed your visit. As I walked the halls and
visited with the students at lunch, they were talking about your songs. One class
used points from your Person of Peace song as they problem-solved an issue
which occurred in gym class later that day. As promised, you did engage the
children for the full 45 minutes!
Catherine Wang/ Principal South School-Glencoe, Illinois
The program was a total success! The teachers and children said the performers
were great. They had so much energy and worked so well with the children. One
teacher said her class learned all of the songs on the CD and pretend to be
Caroline and Danny. When are they coming back…Nayda Santiago Newark
I like the way you updated the language and used terms and situations that
today’s kids will understand…
Jackie Silberg (Miss Jackie)/ Parents Council award winner
I think what you are doing for children is wonderful. I am happy to endorse what
you are doing…

The counselors in my school believe your songs represent the values and ethics
that we are attempting to teach children…
John Anderson/ principle at Ocee Elementary/ GA
The program was a pure delight. I've rarely seen an audience of youngsters so
captivated. Over a hundred children from at least five different classes and there
was no fussing or complaining.
Even the teachers got into the spirit of the program and participated and couldn't
thank us enough for inviting them…
