Album Notes
This new, upbeat, original sequel to the classic legend of Aladdin describes-- in rhyme with music-- how non-violent superhero, Bubblebee, meets Aladdin. Bubblebee can blow soap bubbles from the antennae on his head.

REVIEW: The CD has been recommended in a review by Elementary School Counselling.

I took a summer class a few weeks ago that discussed how to integrate the arts into our core curriculum. One of the activities that we practiced was a visualization technique, which involved listening to a story and then using that story to spark either written or visual arts (i.e. painting, drawing, etc.) expression.

The Tale of Aladdin and Bubblebee: How it All Began is a great audiobook for this type of activity. Bubblebee is a non-violent superhero who helps a genie who is stuck in his lamp. As a reward, Bubblebee receives three wishes, but instead of using these wishes on himself, he asks the genie to give him the skills needed to make the world a better place.
In addition to the story itself, the audiobook has calming music playing in the background, which could help students relax, especially those who may have excess energy and anger. The character voices, narrator, and audio effects also add to the overall story, helping it come to life.

I would use this technique with younger students, K-1, in a classroom setting. Students can listen to The Tale of Aladdin and Bubblebee and demonstrate their understanding through art. Since it's an audiobook, I would take frequent breaks to assess understanding and help illustrate the story using puppets and/or having students act out parts of the book.

Also, by listening to this exciting story on the CD while looking at the soft-cover book of the story it can help kids learn to read. Book is available from publisher (Rymar Publishing Co.)
Kids love to sing and dance to the two songs.

The story begins, “If you’re ever in some trouble/Find the bee who blows a bubble/...He works for good and not for glory/ He’s a hero; here’s his story!”

After a brief summary of the traditional Aladdin story, the authors tell the tale of a brilliant son named Al, born to Aladdin and the princess. “The baby smiled and said, ‘Hello,/There is a lot I’d like to know!’” Because of his doting parents and the famous genie, young Al has a luxurious, yet unsatisfying, childhood.

One day, Al is about to ask for a special wish, but the genie gets stuck in his lamp and is unable to grant any wishes. After numerous failed attempts to free the genie, the mysterious Bubblebee appears, succeeds and is rewarded for his efforts with three wishes.

Rather than using his wishes for the usual “package” -- riches, castles and a beautiful princess -- Bubblebee asks the genie for something much different. He wants skills to help make the world a better place.

Bubblebee’s bubbles are enhanced so they can carry the latest technological equipment and transport characters to various times and places. Al, who has the same goal, is also given special powers to work together with Bubblebee to help humanity.
