Park Slope Parents Group Releases CD of Songs for City Kids and Their Families

Volunteer Effort Brings Together 17 Children’s Musicians from AudraRox to Zanes

Brooklyn, N.Y. – January 23, 2007 – Park Slope Parents, one of the nation’s largest online parenting groups, today released a CD of children’s music featuring 17 well-loved artists and songs that celebrate family life in the big city. Produced through a volunteer effort by the group’s members, the limited-edition CD is a fundraising venture for the Park Slope Parents website at , an essential informational resource for parents throughout Park Slope, Brooklyn, and beyond. A CD release party and concert will be held later this winter on a date to be announced.

Park Slope Parents has grown rapidly since its inception in July 2002, attracting more than 6,000 members and offering an ever-expanding array of services including an email listserve, an informational website, a Halloween costume exchange, and other family-oriented events. When its operational needs began to strain its all-volunteer resources, the group sought creative fundraising opportunities.

“Both Park Slope Parents and the Park Slope Parents CD have grown beyond my wildest dreams,” said Park Slope Parents Founder and local mother of two, Susan Fox. “Our parenting group is now the largest in Brooklyn with more than 6,000 members. And the quality and quantity of artists who want to support the group is absolutely overwhelming. The songs are favorites of mine and of my kids!”

As an eclectic neighborhood of professionals and creative artists, Park Slope provided both the broad range of skills needed to see the CD to fruition as well as the community spirit needed to make it a true volunteer effort. The musicians’ contract was drawn up pro bono by a Park Slope attorney. The artwork was contributed by local dad Mo Willems, author of the classic books Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and Knuffle Bunny. Some songs were recorded specifically for the album using donated time at Trout Recording, a studio owned by Park Slope Parents member Bryce Goggin. Mastering, CD design, and distribution were also taken up by tireless (and often exhausted) parent volunteers.

Loosely based on life in Brooklyn, the Park Slope Parents CD includes songs on everything from the local subways and highways to the combination of nature and city life to Itty Bitty Kitty in New York City. Reflecting the progressive community that inspired it, the album also tackles the sensitive issue of gay parenting with “Moms and Dads,” a song with lyrics such as “It can be any combination when you know your parents love you / It can be two Moms / Or two Dads / Grandma / Maybe Grandpa / Or Uncle Josh.”

Proceeds from the Park Slope Parents CD will go toward content and technology maintenance for the Park Slope Parents website at, an essential resource for local families as well as those further afield, offering information, recommendations, and advice on parenting and related issues.

A limited quantity of 5,000 CDs will be sold at a suggested retail price of $18.99 through a grassroots distribution effort designed to support local Park Slope retailers. Beginning today, it can be purchased at Music Matters, Kidz Cut Zone, The Green Onion, Orange Blossom, Lolli, Nest, Maggie’s, 3R Living, Gumbo, Bumblez Sweet Surprise, Lion in the Sun, Serene Rose, Blue Rose, and Razor, and online through
