CD Reviews

Engaging for young children--and their parents!

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Although not a crisp studio recording, the spontaneity and exuberance of Ella Jenkins and the children bring an energy to this collection of lesser-known, lively sing alongs--mostly with a spiritual, blues or rock 'n roll origin. Ms. Jenkins is the premiere music performer and educator for young children--she knows just how to bring the excitement and joy of musical expression to children. You and your child will be singing along quite easily to all of these numbers--this collection is especially suited to ages 3 to 9 according to the cover, however, even babies seem to enjoy it!"
