Sweet Honey in the Rock emphasizes rhythmic and sing-along numbers on its first children's album. Most songs have a progressive message, but the music itself has a contagious energy on songs like "The Little Red Caboose," "Juba," and "Amen." Civil Rights chants are mixed with African stories and a Georgia Sea Island chant, and young singers from Washington's Adam Elementary School join in on five numbers. --Geoffrey Himes

Music for mamas and babies

"My close friend titled my birthday copy of this album, "Music for Mamas and Babies." And I, the mama, have played and sung the album with my two children and by myself every day for days at a time. The words that come to mind -- harmony, happiness, thinking, learning, singing -- may be words that you like to hear. Then you would also like to hear a new version of "Cumbaya," a story about the children's song of Ono, Africa, how to fall in love "two by two," and how to make a drum. Sweet Honey's vocal harmonies, unique arrangements, accapella performances, non-accapella performances, commitment to equality, and rich story-telling make this an album to listen to past the time your babies are babies."

"This CD will have you singing along in no time! It's jubilant sounds and children participation are so upbeat anyone would smile! These women produce fabulous music even for non gospel music lovers! A great CD for children, and many songs they can sing and move to."

"I have used this CD consistently in my music class since I purchased it back in the early days of my teaching career. The music is has a consistently positive message. I have used the "Little Red Caboose" recording with K/1 students and the "Calypso Freedom" song with the 3rd graders in our Civil Rights Music unit. The 4th graders completely dig "Juba" and are intrigued by the history surrounding that song. "So Glad I'm Here" gets everyone rocking and loosened up!"
