In an effort to fulfill our community’s growing interest, Pardis for Children has started publishing original content including books, audiobooks, music, educational packages and other media! These products were originally created and developed to be used in our classrooms and they have been instrumental in teaching and inspiring children to embrace the culture and language of Iran.  We are now hoping to share them with other bilingual and multilingual children of Iranian heritage around the world!

 

Songs of Norouz

We are delighted to announce the release of our new music album, Songs of Norouz!

The album is available for download from  ITUNES or AMAZON! You can also go to cdbaby to purchase the physical CD.

Songs of Norouz, a beautiful collection of original songs, takes children on a delightful journey to discover Norouz, the Iranian New Year. This beloved holiday that originated in Persia over 3000 years ago marks the first day of spring and is known for its celebrations and new beginnings (read more on Norouz and its traditions and festivities inside the CD).

Composed by the talented musician, educator and vocalist Hani Niroo, Songs of Norouz is the second music album produced and published by Pardis for Children, Inc. Similar to Songs of Pardis, this album is a musical exploration of the Persian language and Iranian culture.
