“I definitely think there is a place for this type of format. The audio brings an added component, giving my students another way of learning and reading.”
ANDREA MANDEL, CHILDREN’S LIBRARIAN, MARPLE PUBLIC LIBRARY
“If you are in a preK-3 classroom and looking for ways to incorporate music or get students more engaged with stories and literacy, I absolutely recommend checking out Cantata Learning.“
MICHAEL KARLIN, THE EDTECH ROUNDUP
“The music engages the brain to learn and memorize in ways nothing else can! The songs draw in the interest of students, especially those who get easily distracted. Me, She, He, We: Pronouns Replace Nouns prompted a great learning experience around pronouns. Having a song to sing was the most engaging part. The songs are so catchy that they stick in students’ heads.”
KELLIE BENGE, 5th GRADE SPED TEACHER
“When I discovered Cantata Learning, it made perfect sense to add many of these titles to our book collection right away. I turned to my fellow teachers to help choose books supporting science, social studies, math, and even some folk songs for music class. The teachers love using the books to reinforce the curriculum, and the students love learning the songs. I enjoy watching student learn through song and carry what they learned from the book with them as they continue to sing wherever they go. That is the power of music!“
KARYN LEWIS, MEADOW WOOD ELEMENTARY, TEXAS
“Children of all ages love music and songs which is why it’s been used as a teaching tool for generations. Cantata Learning engages students by capturing the joy that music brings to learning.“
SHANNON MCCLINTOCK MILLER, THE LIBRARY VOICE

Cantata Learning has created a group of attractive, appealing, educational books that capture a child’s interest while painlessly and delightfully teaching new information. You can’t beat a combination like that!”
KATHLEEN BAXTER, THE NONFICTION BOOKTALKER & CHILDREN’S LITERATURE CONSULTANT
“The Cantata book and music series presents informational fiction text in a completely new way. Integrating full color illustrations, words, and music, these stories delightfully address multiple academic standards, as well as meet the needs of different learning styles.”
