Review:
Picture rolling green hills, bright blue skies, children playing, and a group of people sitting around with their guitars, banjos, fiddles, mandolins, and hand drums perched on their knees. Now picture it all in the hand-held, packaged form of a CD, and you have Pocketful of Wonder. Earthy, folksy, and clearly authentic singer/songwriter Sarah Pirtle captures the essence of being in the great outdoors with her wondrous songs about farm life, city life, growing vegetables, and the different seasons. Toe-tapping music and upbeat melodies celebrating nature seem to come effortlessly to Pirtle. Her talents shine through in the ease with which she sings, "Let's go outside. The mud is calling. I think that bare feet will be fine. Let's go outside. Splash in puddles. And most of all I'm gonna take my time," speaks to the simple pleasures of childhood.

Note: Insert the CD in a computer to download a bonus activity guide and lyrics.
