If you have never been introduced to the world of Jack Hartmann PLEASE let me introduce you to it! Jack Hartmann is a nationally recognized children’s author, singer, songwriter, keynote speaker and workshop leader. He is based in central Florida where I grew up and if you are a teacher there chances are you already know who he is or use his materials in your classroom! (You can read more about him and his wife Lisa along with their successful children’s book and music company Hop 2 It Music and Press, Inc. here!) His Gingerbread Man song is my kid’s personal favorites (along with Tooty Ta!) and I know that his Letter Sounds song (video below) is a popular one for preschool and kinder teachers!
Most of his songs get kids UP and on their feet and really just a lot of fun – and they are educational at the same time! I’ll be the first to admit there’s been plenty of times I’ve chased my kids around the house to our favorite Gingerbread Man song! My kids and I have personally attended some of his live events when we lived in Florida and it is just amazing. A whole group of kids just sitting there messing around will get up and shake their wiggles out to pretend they are pirates, elephants, counting masters or whatever else Jack comes up with! He has come up with OVER 700 songs for kids on 26 different albums! But he has a lot more than just (really great!) kids songs! Check out all of his educational children’s materials here!Because we love Jack Hartmann so much we have partnered up with him to giveaway his “Have it All Bundle” worth over $450 and includes 623 songs on 30 CD’s, 4 DVD’s, the Letter Sounds Chart, and the illustrated Over in the Ocean book!
