South Florida children’s author and musician Darrell House has just earned a Parents’ Choice Gold Award for his newest release, a spoken word CD collection of mostly humorous poems for kids and families titled Speed-b-b-b-bumps. The material was written to entertain his daughters when they were young, and it reflects interests and ideas with which children easily identify.

Parents' Choice says:
"Parents seem to enjoy [House's] music and stories too."

MaryAnn Karre, Horace Mann Elementary School, Binghamton, NY and reviewer for the Library Journal says, "House’s enjoyment is contagious, and listeners will be smiling, laughing, and asking for more."
