It was 1986 when Richard Caudle, a school psychologist, saw something missing in children's education. The lesson plans used lacked multisensory learning approaches, music, and engaging content that would make learning fun. Taking matters into his own chalk-covered hands, Mr. Caudle contacted his brother Brad, a musician, and together the two recorded Rock 'N Learn's first program. More than 25 years and a slew of awards later, the company still remains a family affair. Brad's wife, Melissa, writes material and coordinates research, while Richard's wife, Kathie, manages the sales and marketing team. Together, they have created more than 50 books, audio programs, and videos.
Rock 'N Learn's educational DVDs and CDs fuse music and colorful imagery to teach skills in areas such as math, science, phonics, and language. Their DVD programs give life to animated characters such as D.J. Doc, the Hip Hop Hamster, who raps positive lyrics about states and capitals and the challenges of finding rodent-sized sunglasses. Some of Rock 'N Learn's other items include interactive stories for the iPad and iPhone as well as DVDs that cover test-taking strategies.
Meet Paul. Paul is Ella's dad. He started Ella's Kitchen because he wanted to teach his daughter that eating healthily could be fun and delicious, too. Paul asked his daughter a lot of questions about what she liked about certain foods; he asked experts, too, including psychologists and supermarkets, about what makes foods appealing to kids. He discovered that the snacks little ones love most tend to appeal to all five senses; In addition to tasting and smelling good, they boasted bright packaging. Starting with USDA-certified organic baby foods, Paul set out to make his foods as fun as possible.
Along the way, he decided that the responsibility he'd taken on himself to instill lifelong healthy eating habits went with a few other responsibilities, too. He takes up community causes, donating money and offering support to worthy organizations. He also does his best to keep his company green, providing customers young and old with explicit recycling instructions and even partnering with TerraCycle to make eco-products out of his baby food's discarded packaging.
