ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SONGS FOR KIDS WHO LIKE TO THINK -- by Bill Pere

Well written, thought-provoking songs for kids and adults.
These are songs that will exercise your mind and foster discussion between parents and adults. "Give the Children a Tomorrow" is the first collaboration between Bill Pere and Les Julian, who between them have won 8 national awards and who have also written 'Donkey in a Ditch' which Parent's Choice Magazine called "the best children's song about a moral dilemma ever written".

"Homonculus", the story of kids taunting a disabled man and being put in their place by a little girl is a powerful experience.

"Pegasus" and "Anyone Can Make Music" are great lessons while being fun to listen to.

The same mastery of cinematic story-telling songs which have made Bill's adult CD's (Crest of a Wave, High School My School, and Cityscape) so enduring and broad in their appeal is evident here, in this kid-friendly musical world.
This is the first in a series of three related CD's,
"Songs for Kids Who Like to Think", "Songs for Kids with Common Scents", and "Songs for Kids Who Touch the Stars".

There are recurring characters and musical themes that tie these together.


13 Tracks, 48 minutes, LYRIC SHEET INCLUDED !
