The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval
"I am a Math Coach at a Title One school in South Carolina. Over the past four years, we have seen our math students come from scoring the lowest of ten elementary schools to second from the top! Having recently received an award from the governor for closing the achievement gap in math (for historically underachieving students), we credit some of our strategies to your Multiplication Rap CD I purchased for some of our children.” – Frieda B., Elementary School Math Coach
"Catchy memorable lyrics and a fun upbeat attitude, make this audio tape something that is ideal for helping kids overcome learning blocks. Music is one of the best ways we know to help with the retention of essential material like teaching the times table. The rhyming techniques of rap music work well here. Our testers agreed that while learning multiplication may not be their idea of fun, it sure helped to have this recording to make it go down easier." – National Parenting Center Seal of Approval
"A bestseller that's fun and unique. Features positive lyrics to encourage and motivate learning." – Learning Magazine, Teachers' Choice Award
"Positive lyrics extol the virtues of staying in school, hard work at studies, and self-esteem while teaching listeners the multiplication tables from 0 to 12. The narrators are clear and precise and explain the key concepts in an understandable manner. The booklet offers additional activities. A lot of fun, as well as meaningful learning." – Booklist
These are audio CDs with a difference: original rap tunes with attention-grabbing lyrics which teach kids. Multiplication Rap includes activity pages of games and puzzles to accompany a "top 40" set of rap sounds, with the multiplication table broken into different rhymes and songs for each times table. – Children's Bookwatch
"The non-juvenile sound of Multiplication Rap appeals to first-time learners because it is cool and fun. In our school, the older students who are at-risk or who have remedial needs love rapping along to the coolest sounding multiplication program we've found anywhere!" – Charlotte Harris, 3rd grade teacher
"When it's essential to build speed and accuracy for performing multiplication facts through 12, we recommend your multiplication songs to parents. This is the one that our students enjoy the most." - Lee Ferrell, teacher
"Rock 'N Learn Multiplication Rap audio CD and book is the number one selling item in my teacher supply store." – Store Owner, Chicago, quoted at tradeshow
"I have a dyslexic son who is also a champion swimmer. He turned 9 in June, and we're channeling the same mentality we used to achieve in swim towards academics, and started today with the Multiplication Rap CD. What an incredible resource! Congratulations on such a productive and innovative idea." – Judith S.
