about mr. kell


When Tom Kell came to Los Angeles from his native Seattle in 1983, it was all about the songs. He had already written hundreds of songs when he began pursuing his career as a recording artist. Tom went on to have his songs recorded by artists as varied as The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Kenny Rogers. After releasing many albums of his own (most notably for Warner Bros. records in the early 1990’s), Tom decided to accept a position as a music teacher at a small private school in Long Beach, California (Lakewood Christian Schools). Tom’s connection with the kids, creativity, and original music has made him the “legendary” Mr. Kell. Over the years he has written hundreds of children’s songs, at least ten Christmas musicals, and inspired many of his students to pursue music. This book is just the first in a series of children’s books based on his wonderful songs.

The Bucket List Song book tells the story of a boy named Jesse, a student in Mr. Kell's music class. He shares his ideas of a Bucket List describing things he wants to do before he grows up. It's a reminder that being a kid is a time of fun and imagination that should be cherished. You cannot help but crack a smile and think of what you would add to the list while reading the book or singing the song.
