Playdate Kids Publishing: I LIKE ME DANCE

Los Angeles, CA (April 12, 2007)— Successful children's books publisher, Tena Fanning has progressed towards a new musical children’s book series after launching a thriving children’s self-help series under Playdate Kids Publishing. Fanning’s new publishing house has set a late springtime release for the first of the three books in the new musical series entitled, "The I Like Me Dance.” The author and composer of the book and CD, Tim Friedlander, is seemingly a jack of all trades. He is a Van Nuys high school teacher, multitalented musician, composer, voice over artist and producer based in Los Angeles, California.

In the past, Friedlander has worked with hot music artists such as Tevin Campbell and Tyrese and been seen on E!, NBC, HBO and BET. Now, he is a featured member of the Orange Country Performing Arts Center's Art Teach Program where he has the opportunity to promote music and art in local Southern California schools. Friedlander’s career path has definitely steered him towards enriching children’s lives through his original music.

Friedlander is obviously thrilled about his new venture with Playdate Kids Publishing. "I am extremely proud to have written and produced smart, fun and encouraging products for both children and parents alike. I have always wanted my music to offer inspiration and joy. With my new Playdate Kids music series, I can do just that," he said.

The Playdate Kids’ first musical adventure, “The I Like Me Dance,” is not your typical children’s book. Part zoo adventure-- part songbook and part early confidence builder, the musical journey boosts a young child’s self-esteem through its encouraging text and self-assured tone. Additionally, the musical book includes a CD, a simple dance routine and sheet music so children can do their own dances at home. The tune is catchy and the lyrics promote self-worth. Through “The I Like Me Dance,” The Playdate Kids can help young children understand the importance of confidence and boost their self-esteem.
