Celebrate!  Holidays of the Global Village

Celebrate! Holidays of the Global Village

Spring 2006 Music
Ages: 4 - 9 yrs.
CD Price: $14.95
Review:
In a comprehensive celebration of music that explores multicultural holidays, Chris McKhool has written (and performs) a fine selection of original songs, augmented by a few well-chosen covers and traditional tunes which commemorate such holidays as Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, and many others, including Native American and Pagan traditional celebrations. The songs are all intelligently and respectfully written. The musical styles accurately reflect the culture being represented; the musicianship and production values are top notch. Lyrics, in a reasonable font size, are provided in the CD booklet. For an additional $15.00, parents and teachers can purchase a sixty-five-page spiral bound book that includes full-page lyric sheets, musical notation, background information and suggested activities for each holiday song.
