Editorial Reviews

Songs Celebrating Children of All Abilities
by Grammy Nominee Brady Rymer

These songs were inspired by the students at Celebrate the Children School, a New Jersey school for
children with alternative learning styles. Many of the students are affected by autism, Asperger's Syndrome
or related disorders.

The songs can be heard as anthems for differently-abled children and their families; at the same time,
I think every child will find something to relate to in this collection. I hope the songs will invite deeper
understanding and appreciation of children with autism and other disorders by shedding light on just how
much we all have in common.

The CD art is by Zoe Kakolyris, an artist with Asperger's Syndrome who is also profoundly deaf. The vibrant
world she portrays, full of children interacting with joy and humor, perfectly reflects the spirit of this
collection of songs.

A students at the school who inspired a song, 'So Many Ideas', said this -
'That song tells exactly how I feel. The ideas that are trapped in my head are so huge I can't even type them to you. The thing I think you need to teach the world the most is that we think very intelligently but we are bound by our bodies. This makes the world think we are not thinking people. Thank you for writing that song. Tell the parents that their kids are understanding everything that is going on even if it seems
like they are not paying attention. Never give up fighting for them. They can get out of their very trapped
state and be heard - that is how I did it.'
Keir Keebler, 15 years old

I would highly recommend the purchase of this CD for all the kids in your life (and the adults, too!). The entire CD is enjoyable and promotes a fabulous message for all children, special needs or not. Your kids will pick their favorites and ask for them again and again. I even choose this one when I'm driving by myself in the car! :) Hats off to Brady Rymer for taking the time to produce such an important body of work. I will definitely be keeping an eye on his future endeavors. All four of my kids enjoy listening to the CD and it further reinforces how much we are all alike despite our learning and sensory differences. You will not regret this purchase!

This tape is a must have for everyone who has children, especially children on the autism spectrum, and lots of adults, too! I listen to it in the car and sing along. The messages are near and dear to the hearts of children with autism spectrum disorders, but help other kids understand them better. They may find themselves in a song, too. Songs like "picky eater" "Who wants to wear clothes (not me!)" and "(Please don't try to fix me) Love me for who I am" are (as are most) very clever. The words are easy to understand, the music is catchy and performed with lots of energy and enthusiasm. I wish everyone would buy one! The world would be a much better place!

April is Autism Awareness Month and Grammy-nominated rocker Brady Rymer has an entire album dedicated to the empowerment of children with special needs. A father of two (Daisy and Gus), Brady switched gears from his rock and roll past to focus on child friendly songs that still rocked. Children continued to inspire Rymer's music and the kids from the Celebrate the Children School in New Jersey are the motivation behind Love Me for Who I Am. This album is a filled with happy and beautiful music that celebrates children of all abilities with a special connection to those with special needs. All children (and parents!) can relate to these songs!

Grammy nominee Brady Rymer has once again put all his heart and soul into these new songs. Every tune is inspired by kids he's met and sung with -- they are truly anthems for people who have no voice. And, as is the case with songs like "Picky Eater" and "I Don't Like Change," they speak for any child. Together with his producer and musical collaborator Dan Myers and guest artists Laurie Berkner and Bernie Worrell (Talking Heads, Parliament Funkadelic), Mr. Rymer has crafted another classic family music recording.
