AL “As President of my school’s PTO, I feel it is my job to find ways to keep the members positive and motivated. When I heard the song “Dreams” I realized that this message was what I had been trying to convey to my group. I played the song for my officers and amid tears and nodding heads we all agreed that this was to be our theme song. Whenever we became discouraged, or doubtful, we would listen to it and realize that the only limitations were the ones we put on ourselves. This song led us to accomplish remarkable and seemingly impossible goals. Please know that there is a small, rural town in Alabama that will never be the same as a result of what you do.”
TN “Our 2 year-old son loves to watch The Animal Band’s DVD and listen to the CD. A few months ago in April when he turned 2, we started getting concerned because he didn’t talk nearly as much as other kids his age. We had his speech, hearing, and overall development evaluated and discovered that he had a moderate hearing loss due to fluid in his ears. This put him about 6 months behind in his expressive speech. He received tubes in his ears to correct the problem, and now he can hear just fine but his speech has not taken off like we had hoped. My brother-in-law gave us the Animal Band CD and DVD it has affected our family in a marvelous way. He’s now singing a lot of the words with the songs and imitating what he sees on the DVD. It has made us so happy just to see both of our boys have so much fun and be so enthusiastic about the music, but it is REALLY awesome to see him making so much more effort to talk (and sing)! Thanks for the awesome music, positive message, and fun DVD! We really appreciate you!”
NY “I’ve used your music in my classroom for twelve years and it has become an integral part of the curriculum. When I came back from summer break this year, my cassette tape was missing out of the case and I’m lost without it. I am ordering all of the CDs because your music is my motivation.”
TX “I am the nurse for an eight-year old boy that is confined to a wheelchair due to a genetic disease that is a combination of MS and MD. The Animal Band’s music and DVD has totally captivated him. He watches it repeatedly all day long and has a hundred questions about the band.” It’s as if the band is performing just for him right here in the living room. Thank you so much for the amazing music and videos. You have no idea just what you mean to a little boy out here in West Texas.”
MI “I am a Junior in high school and involved in dance and music. One of the highlights of my life was to be on stage with The Animal Band. It has changed my perspective on life. You have re-inspired me with your music and willingness to share your talents and experience. Now I try much harder to be better.
FL “The Animal Band can accomplish more with a two-minute melody than many one hour classroom lessons.
GA “I am a 71 year old grandmother and a few months ago lost my husband of 52 years. We enjoyed many wonderful times together and it has been a very difficult time for me to adjust. I recently attended an event and heard Jim Moore sing his song “Dreams”. After hearing that song, I realized that I need a new dream. The song is heard regularly, loud and clear throughout my home. Your song has touched me and given me hope for more dreams.”
Australia “I downloaded your song Unicorn from ITunes and must say the lyrics and melody are hauntingly beautiful. I’ve never heard anyone describe growing older in such a marvelous way. I listen to it daily.”
Columbia South America “I use your musical toys at our school to help teach my students English. We have now learned the words to your song I Like Reading a Book just by listening to the singing owl. The music is so lively it seems to have magical powers when the children sing the song. You have many friends in South America.”
Germany “The Animal Band is still among the top to listen to on a long stretch of the Autobahn.”
