Kidzter Books & Music has released The Kidzter Kids Meet Motown, a time-travel adventure in which the Kidzter Kids (Eva, Jimi & Carlos) go back in time to Motown in the ’60’s to learn about teamwork.
“A time travel trip back to Motown’ glory days when everything was Uptight (Alright) for a trio of today’s youth. What a great way for kids to learn the love of music history,” Joel Selvin, S.F. Chronicle Music Critic & Author.
The Kidzter Kids Meet Motown is the first in a series of time travel adventures in which the Kidzter Kids travel back in time to meet and learn from legendary musicians like Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Louis Armstrong. You are there with the Kids as music history happens. In the Motown book, you are there in the studio as the Supremes come up with their “hit” sound.
Every Kidzter e-book book comes with a free song download. This book comes with a children’s song recorded by a group that features rock stars Marty Balin (Jefferson Starship), Maria Muldaur and John “Marmaduke” Dawson (New Riders Of The Purple Sage).
The book is specially priced at 99 cents on Kindle for the next ninety days and the book is free for the next five Mondays until Christmas. Kidzter is asking those that download it for free to review it on Amazon. Every Kidzter time travel book will first be introduced at a discount price with five free download days on Amazon. The next title, The Kidzter Kids Meet Bob Dylan and Folk Rock will be released in February. In that one the Kids go back to the Newport Folk Festival in 1965 as Bob Dylan “goes electric.”
The Kidzter Kids Meet Motown is written by Eva Emily Ellis, one of the twelve-year-old protagonists (with a little help from Kidzter Founder Bob Heyman) and illustrated by Jason Whitley. The book is dedicated to legendary Motown songwriter Lamont Dozier, who was kind enough to share his Motown memories.
The Kidzter time-travel books are a great way for parents and grandparents to introduce kids to the music they love. All the books feature a clickable song discography. Here is the link to the book on Amazon
