Synopsis

Amazon.com
One of Cajun music's chief qualities is its cheerfulness; it's impossible to listen to it and stay depressed. This same quality makes it perfect music for kids, and Papillion succeeds admirably, from the rollicking gaiety of "Down on the Bayou" to the zydeco rhythm of "Zydeco Dancing" to the bluesy shuffle of "Sugar Bee." Most of the songs, as one might expect, will move the tiniest feet, from "Oh Papillion!" to "Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!" (which means, unsurprisingly, "Let the good times roll") to "Let's Go!" There are slower songs as well; "Fais Do Do" ("Go to Sleep") is a lullaby, and the highly recognizable "You Are My Sunshine" closes the CD. Between musical tracks, Papillion takes his young listeners on a journey through the Louisiana bayou, with an odd French lesson or two along the way. Recommended! --Genevieve Williams

CD Reviews

My 4-year old daughter highly recommends this music!

"We chose this CD after enjoying other Music for Little People CD's (Big Blues and Reggae for Kids) but this is by far our favorite! My daughter dances thru the entire CD and has almost memorized it in the week we have had it. The music is infectious and she loves the stories before the songs which explain what they are about. She has also learned many of the french phrases because she loves it so much. The music is very upbeat and puts us both in a great mood!"
Delightful! More Papillion Available on his Web Site!

"My daughter and I love Papillion's Music!
Cajun for Kids is absolutely Delightful.
We have listened to this album for 3 years now and it is still her favorite.
I find that she has (in a way) grown with the CD... first when she was 2 she responded to the beat and joyful nature of the music... she began "Shouting" along with Papillion! As she has grown I find her listening more carefully to the songs and stories and asking me questions or telling me about her favorite parts. I love that this is quality music that I enjoy as an adult and that Papillion provides many levels for Children to relate to and grow into and discover new treasures in the songs and stories. We were tickled to discover Papillion's colorful and interesting ... and to Purchase ... Papillion's New CD "Hugs and Smiles!" This CD is just as much of a treat as Cajun for Kids!
Check it out at www.papillion.com!"
Fun, bouncy and informative! you can't sit still!

"This CD is full of happy, bouncy, can't sit still music for kids and their parents. Papillon is so likeable and a wonderful host through the world of the Cajun people. He even offers kids simple French lessons. My two year old knows Bonjour! and Mon ami! and coco-drie. The watermelon man and coco-drie songs are standouts! I highly recommend this."
