Subject: Debbie Carroll: Up and Over the Moon
From out the frozen north comes yet another CD gem. (What is this well of folkdom that Canadians tap like maple trees?) Debbie Carroll, a charming and talented early childhood music specialist in Toronto, offers an avalanche of play songs, game songs and dances on a fabulous collection called "Up and Over the Moon", which she describes as "...giggle, dance and cuddle songs for the very young." I stand in awe of those gifted individuals who can relate to pre-schoolers, who can capture their attention and infect them with their elan. Because I am neither a pre-schooler nor the parent of a preschooler, I wanted an outside opinion of this CD before I criticized it. I gave it to Sylvia Epstein, a critic whose pre-school credentials are as real as she is pretty. Sylvia says it's good. What can I add to that?
The CD, along with an illuminating booklet of movement and games is available from Merriweather Records, Ltd., www.merriweather.ca
Tell 'em Sylvia sent you.
