About

“My name is Amanda Parkhurst and I am Amanda Panda.

I am a mom, a dancer, a children’s music songwriter, and an early childhood music educator and performer. I wrote a song called "I am Peaceful” with my own children in mind and created a series of simple movements to accompany it. As I began sharing this song with families, something really special started happening. In October of 2018, with my partner Rob Duquette, our children and our friends,  the "I Am Peaceful" song was recorded and is the final song on my album “Play for life” by Amanda Panda Music.

You can listen to it on Spotify or order the Cd from cd baby if you are interested!

As I have been teaching, traveling, and sharing this song with children and grown ups, I have heard some really excellent things.  I wanted to find a way to put this song and the energy behind “I Am Peaceful” into a book. A coloring book.

I’ve had this idea for a while… I always feel peaceful when I am coloring… the artist who developed my album art for Amanda Panda Music, Michael Taylor loved my idea and so he has been creating inspiring images of children singing and moving to the words of my song. More (information about Michael and his art can be found below also:)

Now YOU help me make this song into a coloring book for children (and adults) and make mindfulness a simple part of everyday!
