ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Saskia has much success as a 90's pop star in Canada and starring in the Broadway musicals Rent and The Lion King.
Now a proud mother of two, Saskia wanted to instill in her kids a love for music, while finding clever ways to make their lives easier. This inspired her current venture "All in a Day’s Play", a fun and quirky CD taking listeners through a day in the life of a young child struggling with lisping, waking and bedtime battles, potty training, thumb sucking, brushing teeth etc., all set to infectious melodies and lyrics in a variety of musical genres including Reggae, Bossa Nova, Big Band, Tango, 80s Rock, lush lullabies and more. Interspersed with little ditties to help kids learn the basics, the songs are so catchy even parents will enjoy them again and again and again...you won’t mind if you get them stuck in your head!
Go to www.saskiagarel.net to find out more about Saskia and her latest endeavours.

This album is dedicated to my mommy Carole Garel and my gram Lucy McPherson for my good brought-upsy. You both are gone too soon but I’m certain you are the “watch over angels” for my little ones.

To my husband Steven who gave me the encouragement to finish this album when I thought it would never happen and for believing in me always. I love you.

To Tristan and Micaiah, for whom I do everything. Thanks for being featured on this album. You make every day worth living and raising you both never feels like work....always play, play, play. I love you nuff nuff.

To my dad Roland for your sweet guitar tinkles. We finally collaborated on something!

To my family, Matt, Joanna, Jordan, Bronson and Trenton, thanks for your input, for being a sounding board and for the great videos Jo :)

Mi love unoo like cook food...oh and boys, some of these songs were written for you specifically. You know which ones! LOL....

To Dizzle (DAO), it has been a long haul but we pulled it off! Thanks for your creative genius. It was a pleasure working with you and having you as a friend means the world to our family.

And finally to Scott and all the talented musicians who worked to make this album everything I imagined, thank you for sharing your gifts.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!
This is such a fun album, so many different kinds of music and the lyrics are so great! We ALL enjoy listening to this CD, even my husband. And it's cool how my kids are learning stuff without them realizing...like their planets and counting in French!!! Who knew it could be as easy as that?

All in a Day's Play
I love this album! My daughter went crazy when she heard all the song's on the Cd. This has to be the best Children Cd I've ever purchased! My daughter stop singing all the songs from frozen and is now singing Mosquito One and Beddy Bye everyday! Saskia and her kids are extremely talented and I'm excited that someone came up with such an original Cd for the whole family to listen to!

Just what we needed
We have been looking for music just like this! Having a 6 month year old, we find a lot of music to be monotonous and lacking the sparkle and taste of what the artist is singing about. We all know kids learn very fast, so to see our son positively react in different ways to every song, really sets us at ease. Thank you so very much! Awesome work...make more! :)

LOVE IT!!!
Saskia has an amazing voice. It seems to be able to do anything. Her children have great voices, too, and the addition of them on many of the tracks is touching and fun and very, very cute. My favourite part of the album is the cultural diversity and worldliness of the language and the music. Children's music can get very generic and boring (since we are listening to it OVER AND OVER again). Listening to this album, on repeat, doesn't get tedious, though, cause there is so much variety and humour and theatricality. Makes for great dance time with your babe, good sing-a-long fun and is a perfect driving-in-the-car soundtrack. I can't wait till my baby is old enough to sing the words with me. Thanks for the great album!
