We are finishing up our Global Read Aloud. We have enjoyed this journey. The kids have loved the book and the message that comes along with it. We closely read the lyrics to “cool kids” by Echosmith. We talked about what the lyrics meant, and how they relate to the main character in the story, Ally.
The song promotes the fact that you don’t need to be a certain type of kid to be happy. The lyrics question the need to be a “cool kid” and points out its best to be yourself.
Please see video below and be sure to talk to your child about this at home.
