Best Recording for Babies and Toddlers, ages 0 to 3 Best Recording for Preschoolers, ages 3 to 5 'This wholesome and fun-filled collection is music made purely for the service of children, yet performed to adult standards of musicianship.' - Parents' Choice, Spring 2007 'Repetition, funny animal sounds and inviting lyrics make this CD a winner for kids. On "Fluffy Puppies," my daughter happily barked along, for example, and she was soon repeating the sing-songy "Woodpecker" lyrics and learning basic subtraction at the same time. This is excellent entertainment for younger kids, who will find plenty to sing - and think about - in the strong mix of 18 songs.' - Toy Directory Monthly 'Pam Donkin's 18 original songs inspire all kinds of activity. Whether urging listeners to "Clap Your Hands Now," inviting them to join a "Kitchen Jam," or insisting they "Gotta Get the Beat," Donkin both leads and leaves room for creative movement.' - American Library Association Booklist '...will amuse, engage and entertain you and your young children...so good you will want to play along.' - Fred Koch, Chicago Parent Magazine Pam is an award-winning children's performer and children's recording artist on the Gentle Wind label, and has appeared nationally in concerts, schools, libraries and on television and radio programs including Romper Room, Pickleberry Pie & We Like Kids.
