Have you heard of Juno Baby? Juno Baby is an award winning children's entertainment company that features music CDs, DVDs, plush toys, and apparel. One of the reasons I was attracted to this company is because of their generosity in their One For All Program. I strongly believe every child deserves their own book and they also deserve the gift of music. Juno Baby's mission is to provide the gift of music to young children everywhere. They partnered up with social service agencies and children's organizations to bring beautiful music to children whose families cannot afford to purchase them that gift. Every time you purchase a CD, DVD or book, Juno Baby donates a like product to a undeserved child. Their goal, to give away 1 million CDs, DVDs, and books in 2010!
Juno Baby is y passion project. As a classical composer and mother, I believe that music has the power to inspire and nurture us creatively, intellectually and emotionally. Music allows us to feel and express ourselves more completely than words often can. My wish is for all children to be surrounded by beautiful and interesting sounds, and for them to keep music forever part of their lives.

The storyline of the products are centered around a young girl Juno and her 4 animal friends. Together they go on musical adventures as they help the viewer develop expressive language skills and their love of music. Juno's music is live, performed by orchestral musicians rather than electronic sounds that mimic classical music. Each DVD includes language tracts in English, French, and Spanish.
We received Juno Baby's Way To Go Juno! Facing Fears Through Music (18 months - 5 years old), Indie's Great Teddy Bear Hunt: Problem Solving Through Music (12 months - 4.5 years old) and Orchestral Edition Juno Baby CD.
When we received our DVDs and CD, Aiyana and I looked through the packaging. Right away, Aiyana determined Juno Baby was for her baby sister, Chloe. The first DVD we watched was Way To Go Juno! Chloe became overwhelmed with excitement. She loved the characters and kept pointing to them on the screen. She had so much fun dancing to the music as she watched Juno face her fears. The first story was about Juno needing a haircut. This story really helped Aiyana who is struggling with her own fears of getting her first haircut. Aiyana still says these are Chloe's DVDs, but she is always requesting to watch them, of course, for her baby sister.
We really enjoy the Orchestral Edition CD. It consist of music from the DVDs, but without the narration and lyrics from the characters. This is perfect for quiet time, but my girls enjoy it during playtime as well. This CD is usually playing in Chloe's room during the day.
I am happy we were introduced to Juno Baby. They are now favorites in our family and being able to help support the One For All Program makes purchasing from Juno Baby the way to go. Kudos to Juno Baby for making wonderful product and for support a fabulous cause!
