My Thoughts

My daughter and I are blessed to have received Ms Jenkins newest CD. We have several favorites like Count from One to Ten (Greetings in Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Hebrew, etc.) and I'm Going to Cairo(teaches some cities with the same name). All of the songs are educational and fun to sing for the entire family. We appreciate that we can experience songs that are sung in so many different languages from different cultures than our own.
