Songs for Junior Rangers Review by Gretchen Bonfert
Warning: this CD may cause singing, dancing, and learning. For kids and fun-loving adults, the National Park Service’s audio CD, Songs for Junior Rangers, is perfect for travel and exploration--both real and imagined. Whether listening to it in a kitchen, a car, or a classroom, this product is a complete package with 20 songs, lyrics booklet, and map of the U.S.

It offers all new music that engages and entertains with clever, witty, and fact-packed verses. Upbeat songs highlight features of 35 national parks through music: salsa, funk, reggae, blues, disco, calypso, hip-hop, folk, jazz, limbo, polka, and more.

This amazing diversity of musical styles is matched by the diversity of information presented. In an hour, you can learn Spanish and Navajo, botany and wildlife ecology, and which parks honor profound contributions made to the U.S. by the Tuskegee Airmen, Martin Luther King, and a Polish patriot.

In addition to spurring interest in visiting national parks, this CD could be useful in formal and non-formal programming for youth in music appreciation, geography, history, and the sciences. Produced by the New Orleans National Jazz Historic Park, the performing artists on the CD also hail from across the country and include Jeff Wolin--a very talented lyricist/composer and park ranger in Colorado.
