Beads on One String still echos in the halls here at Johnson Elementary School. We also continue to use your CD with Don’t Laugh at Me in our bullying education program. Keep Singing!”

Beads On One String brings everyone together in a fun way. It creates a common language for us to converse with each other about critical issues.   I believe the hook of the beads is a concrete way to help kids see some of their conflicts in a different light.

Many times I refer back to the song or book when I am working with kids. The beads are so basic and simple, and kids get that and relate it to people instantly. The theme is embraceable by the entire community.”
