Crowley, TX November 11, 2006—Maria Smith, a second grade teacher at Deer Creek Elementary School in Crowley, TX. presents “Cool School With Ms. Maria Follow the Alphabet Road”, the second in a series of educational videos and music CDs for children ages 3-8. This DVD features songs, dances, and mini lessons guaranteed to have your children singing and dancing their way into reading and math. In fact, parents will be singing and dancing along with their children! The DVD features songs and dances at stops all along the “Alphabet Road.” Do your children know the 5 vowels? If not, they’ll learn them when they stop to visit “Vowel Village.” Can they define a combination? Well, they’ll be certain to know the definition once they stop at “Combination Corner.” And, once they stop at “Consonant Cove,” they’ll be begging to keep following that “Alphabet Road.” Hey, they’ll even learn the difference between parallel and intersecting lines when their stops cross paths.

Maria Smith is a mother, educator, children’s performer, author and the sole creator of this educational program which teaches academic skills, character education, and even Spanish to young audiences ages 3-8. An energetic poet and musician, Maria entertains and educates with vivid animation and a healthy dose of warmth and love. Her energy and smile is contagious, and she is known for her ability to engage and captivate audiences of “all” ages. She has performed live shows at libraries, preschools, festivals, and daycares all over north and central Texas.

Ms. Maria is joined by her sidekick, “Cool Cat,” a life sized tiger sporting large blue shades and a black leather jacket. She is also joined by Texas children who play a major role in her videos. Half the fun of watching and learning is viewing the children who play a major part in the series. They’re from your own backyard, and they’re awesome! It’s reality TV for children and the entire family! The “Cool School With Ms. Maria” series is a unique program that focuses solely on educating children in a fun, positive, uplifting manner. Each video and CD is filled with music, poetry, puppets, Cool Cat and more! More information regarding “Cool School With Ms. Maria” can found by visiting www.coolschoolwithmsmaria.com

Most people who listen to her music and/or watch her DVDs say, “I can’t get these songs out of my head!” Isn’t that what we want? If children can’t get educational songs out of their head, I’d say that was a good thing, wouldn’t you? Oh yeah!
