The three songs in The U.S. Presidents March CD help children memorize U.S. Presidents, First Ladies, and the story of the writing of the U.S. Constitution. "The U.S. Presidents March" contains the full names of all U.S. Presidents in chronological order to the tune of John Phillip Sousa's "Washington Post March." A separate split track and instrumental track are also included. "The First Ladies March" (to the same tune) contains the full names of the First Ladies in chronological order, with a separate split track. The third selection is "The Ballad of the U.S. Constitution," which tells the story of how the U.S. Constitution came to be. Events included in the ballad are the signing of the Articles of Confederation, the Constitutional Convention, and the creation of the Bill of Rights. The Ballad has an additional instrumental track.

The U.S. Presidents March CD appeals to my family's musical tastes. The music consists of simple, pleasing tunes that are well-executed, and the singers'diction is clear. The music is neither brash nor distracting from the content. My children enjoy listening to the songs and can understand the lyrics quite well. The CD is available for purchase on the website for $14.95, and it comes with a little songbook. The website offers a plethora of music and auditory learning resources as well as other curriculum used and recommended by the Cooper family.

It delights me to recommend a product created by a fellow homeschooling family. The Coopers have graduated two sons from their homeschool. Drawing from their many years of homeschooling experience, they create and provide products they believe will serve fellow homeschoolers well. I enjoy supporting a family company that offers high-quality products, especially when the family has successfully traveled the path I am just beginning.
