My first children's song

 It is with a great deal of excitement that I present my first children's song entitled, "I want you to be nice to me".  It is an anti-bullying song with actions for students/children. Please, send the link out to teachers and parent/guardian groups as a free resource and encourage them to get students and children to do the actions while singing the song. A professionally recorded version is now available on iTunes and Googleplay.  Listen to a short clip on the "Songs" page.
