Magical music for children (and adults) to grow
Dance on a Moonbeam: A Collection of Songs and Poems I bought this cd without knowing anything about it apart from the notes on this website - and I am so glad - it is simply perfect. Dance on a Moonbeam: A Collection of Songs and Poems What a fine piece of artistry on the part of all involved particularly Bill Crofut - a remarkable man whose desire for children's music to be so much is so admirable. Dance on a Moonbeam: A Collection of Songs and Poems Whilst my daughter and I listened to the music over and over, I devoured the notes and words to each song and excerpt - it made for good reading. The notes are written by Bill's partner and describe sweetly and poignantly why each particular song was important to Bill and often how he came by it. Meryl Streep's narration of the poetry and verse is magical and her letter included in the notes very moving. Our favourite songs - I love the song about The Bear - it has a lovely giggly scary feel and is such a marvellous story. Dance on a Moonbeam is truly exquisite in its delicacy and mood - it almost always brings tears to my eyes. My four year old daughter's favourite is "I have a garden of my own ... " - she calls it the brother and sister song and sings it to all who will listen - and what a wonderful song for a child to be given - I have a garden of my own, shining with flowers of every hue, I love it dearly while alone, but I will love it more with you. Every song has it's own magic. So much of the music children are bombarded with is completely vaccuous of any musicality or meaning - it is so often patronising and simplistic merchandising / marketing. If you want to give your child - and yourself - music that is fun and inspiring and full of magic and timeless this is the cd to buy. May Bill Crofut's contribution to our children's music never be forgotten.

Lyrical, gentle, lovely
This is my favorite children's CD--gorgeous music, a good mix of songs and poems, and beautiful liner notes. My children love it, and I never tire of it.
