Like eating, breathing, and sleeping, children sing because they must. Music, the universal language, is learned in the earliest years of life and remains vital thereafter. This rich collection invites listeners of all ages to revel and participate in the colorful world of Smithsonian Folkways’ children’s music collection, with both music created “for children,” showcasing our most celebrated storytellers and songwriters, and “by children,” featuring the unique ways children express and understand themselves and the world through song. 57 minutes, 36-page illustrated booklet.
