As part of National Autism Awareness Month, I got a copy of Grammy Nominee Brady Rymer’s new album “Love Me for Who I Am”. Rymer’s work with children with alternative learning styles (some on the autism spectrum) inspired the ten original songs which cover the trials and tribulations of all kids with nods to picky eaters, struggling with change and running naked! There is something for every parent and child on this album. The great thing about Brady’s music is that while being positive and bright, it is not childish or patronizing. It is head-nodding, bust out your dancin’ shoes, rock music! As a parent, I found this album to be inspiring (particularly “Love Me for Who I Am” and “So Many Ideas”) and thoroughly fun and enjoyable. So pick up your kiddo and dance around the room to “Squish Me Squeeze Me” and “Picky Eater”. You know you want to. As a bonus, 5% of the proceeds from the sale of this CD will benefit Autism Speaks, a non-profit research and advocacy group. Giveaway: Want to win a copy of Brady Rymer's "Love Me for Who I Am?"
