Review:

A sprightly debut children's album from singer-songwriter-educator Erica Rabner whose catchy pop-styled songs "Try New Foods," "Read to Me," "I Like Me," "Ask Questions," "Sharing is Caring," are based in sound tenets of child development. "Shelley the Turtle" combines real information about a sea turtle's life with encouragement for listeners to empathize with a "don't pollute" message. In "Manage Your Feelings," Rabner offers calming strategies for dealing with angry feelings (humorous visualizations, counting, breathing in and out.) Rabner's expressive vocals, cheery melodies, and light approach give her real-life lessons inviting appeal.
