1999 Parents' Choice® Silver Award




Lynne Hefley - LA Times & Parent’s Choice
Robert Louis Stevenson's children's poetry, timeless verses that so vividly describe the world of a child's imagination, are set to music by musician/producer Ted Jacobs with a Celtic flavor and lullaby rhythms. The poems about early summer bedtime, the wind and rain, playing pirate, shadow play and dreamy times are brought gently to life by child
and adult singers. A 1999 Parents' Choice®
Silver Award.

“...the best cd I’ve heard all year...this collection sets his poetry to music with such precision, it is difficult to imagine they did not sound this way in Stevenson’s own head...”

A. Hagman - Nordman ID
"My year old triplets received this CD as a birthday gift. I didn't play it right away because I thought it was another classical music album of which we have several... I was so pleasantly surprised by this CD. My babies just love it, dancing and clapping to the songs. We play it all the time and are not tired of it yet. In fact I am here today buying a copy as a baby gift."

Paige La Grone - Amazon.com
“...written expressly for children, these poems breathe life into new worlds born of a love for language. Coupled with fine arrangements on Celtic pipes and strings, this is a fertile garden of enrichment for the whole family...”
