Welcome to the Plymouth Rock “For Kids” page.
How do you make Plymouth Rock=Fun?
“The Secrets of Plymouth Rock” storybook is a great place to start! Mix in characters like Madame Crab, Mr. Seagull, throw in some music and dancing and you’re off to the races! Maybe it’s the beat, maybe it’s the rhymes, maybe it’s All of the Above. Whatever it is its FUN! It’s been proven the combination of music and academics produces a deeper more powerful understanding of any given subject. Diane Finn and her daughter Erin created a Plymouth Rock that speaks to the child within all of us. It spoke to me and looked what happened. I was inspired to write 12 songs. In “Rockin’ The Secrets of Plymouth Rock” kids can have fun singing and dancing “while they learn Early American History.”
The kids singing on the recordings are not professional singers. These are regular, everyday kids from Plymouth Massachusetts who wanted to be a part of something fun! And a lot of Fun they had at actor Johnny Drama Alves’ Funk Lab in Plymouth. 9 of the songs they were Plymouth Rock and 3 of the songs they were the Pilgrims!
