Album Notes
Two of the San Francisco Bay Area's premiere children's performers have joined forces to create this inspirational, uplifting album that will speak to parents just as much as it will to kids. Melita and Isaac weave together beautiful harmonies, meaningful lyrics, danceable rhythms and engaging classics to get you singing, moving and ultimately put a big smile on your face. The songs reflect respect for the Earth, peace, as well as the Jewish culture and heritage.

This album is sure to appeal to lovers of folk music and camp-style sing-alongs,
and will engage people of any age and generation.
