By   |   March 29, 2024   |   Entertainment

March has been National Reading Month, a great time to motivate Americans of all ages to read daily. If you are looking for ways to keep your kids away from screens and video games, pull out the crayons for a few serene hours of coloring books.

Coloring books are ideal for early readers and help them connect words to images. What’s even better? Add some entertaining and educational music to the mix.

Brian Washington is the genius behind Color Us with Music. Washington is a lifelong children’s record collector who has realized his childhood dream of writing, composing, performing and independently releasing his first album, Color Us With Music Deluxe StoryReader Book and Record Set.

“I have loved children’s music for as long as I can remember,” Washington fondly recalls. From the classic Disneyland, Peter Pan, and Wonderland/Golden Records of the 1960s to the 1980s, “those recordings helped me learn, grow, and read through music and song. I want the next generation of children to have that same opportunity through my album.”

A native of Alexandria, Va., Washington has spent most of his career working for the federal government. His artistic creativity has long been a hobby that he hopes will blossom into a new career.

“As a person of color who has overcome dyslexia, a speech impediment, and social anxiety, it was hard for me to think that one day I could own my own business doing what I love. However, with the support of friends, colleagues and family, my confidence has grown, and I am comfortable sharing my music and art with the world.”

Containing eight all-new, original stories and songs composed by Brian and performed by him and his orchestra, tracks include:

1. A Trip to Washington, D.C. 2. My Little Book of Animals

3. My Little Alphabet Book 4. My Little Book of Counting Rhymes

5. Jeffrey, the Little Fireman 6. The Little Red Taxi

7. Tugger the Tugboat 8. Happy Birthday

In addition, a read-along coloring book is included so children may let their imagination run wild on a journey of creativity and musical enchantment.

The total print run of Color Us With Music Deluxe StoryReader Book and Record Set is available now and strictly limited to 300 copies on vinyl ($29.99), with 100 copies on CD ($9.99 SRP). The album is also available via streaming on most platforms.

Color Us With Music Deluxe StoryReader Book and Record Set on vinyl is available to retailers via 33recorddistribution.com; direct-to-consumer, on vinyl LP and CD, from brianwashington.com, and streams on www.PeterPan.com.
