Share, a compilation of 15 top notch children's songs, offers lessons about generosity and kindness. Beginning with Jack Grunsky's "Something to Share," which reminds one of Jim Henson's songwriting, next up is Charity and the JAMBand's "Green Beans Everywhere," a hip and well-crafted song about taking positive action towards physical and spiritual poverty. The Sunflowers offers a nice little ragtime song tune about good karma in "What You Give Is What You Get," while Ben Rudnick and Friends sing a jaunty, accordion fueled tune about crossing safety in "I Need A Hand," and Brent Holmes praises good nutrition and sharing in the steel guitar folk of "I'll Share My Spinach With You." Sharing is also the theme of the gentle rocker "Taking Turns" by The Bangles-sounding Leeny and Tamara.
Other highlights include the marvelous all-vocal percussion of "Give Said the Little Stream" by InsideOut A Cappella, and Kelsey Friday and the Rest of the Week's buoyant and joyful country tune "Happy." Master folk musician Noel Paul Stookey shares his delightful story/song "Homemade Cookie," while the always fun Dog on Fleas brings their breezy bluegrass song of sharing "Give It Away" to the mix. The album ends with Anna Moo's Janice Ian-like tune of praise and encouragement "I'm So Proud of You."
The CD comes in eco-friendly packaging, and includes simple, fun graphics, and easily downloadable lyrics from their well-designed website. Share is the latest addition to Recess Music's very fine catalogue, which all parents should get to know, and indeed, share with their children.
