All but one song on this album are original, introducing new lyrics, beats, and experiences for your child. The one cover, "Hey Diddle Diddle" is given a new spin with a funk beat, and extended verses at the end that your child has likely not heard. Charity's songs have strong and easy-to-identify beats, rhyming words, and repeating choruses - all of which help a child learn the song faster so they can join in the fun. Song length varies greatly from 16 seconds to more than five minutes. "Weather Suite" is a wonderful naptime listen, as the gentle sound of a flute against real rain is extremely soothing. "Turn Around" includes beautiful harmonies and happy staccato notes bridging the verses. "Round as a Moon" is a loving lullaby, featuring the flute and sweet phrases like, "I love you tall as a mountain, deep as an ocean, round as a moon."

Little listeners will have a blast imitating the fun sounds and word-bending in "We Like Funky" or clapping along and throwing out their own numbers in "Counting Tricks". "From Here to There" exudes a sweet tune and fun lyrics like, "I'm an airplane" and "I'm a skateboard" - can your child think of something fun that they would want to be? Children will also have a blast boogying to upbeat tunes and wiggling their nose, fingers, and toes to the song, "Wiggle".

My four-year-old niece, Emily, owns this CD and her mom says she listens to it several times a day. I heard Emily blasting the song "Turn Around" from her play room one day, and when I peaked in the door I saw her twirling slowing in the middle of the room with her arms spread out and her head thrown back, just soaking up the music. She had a huge smile on her face and was completely lost in the song.

This recording won the 2005 Parent's Choice Approved Award. It is Charity Kahn and the JAMband's second album, released in 2004. Charity and the JAMband are from the San Francisco Bay area. The name 'JAM' is an acronym for 'Joy And Music'. Many of Charity's songs, like "We Like Funky" are inspired by her own children. She began writing music for a music-and-movement playgroup for friends' children, that was held in her living room. In 2009, Charity opened her own studio, called JAMspace, in San Francisco.
