Album Review

For You Sing a Song and I'll Sing a Song, noted folk singer and teacher Ella Jenkins is joined by young members of the Urban Gateways Children's Chorus. It features Jenkins' familiar mix of call-and-response, historical, or worldly songs, and plenty of fun in the form of snapping fingers, clapping hands, and stamping feet. Jenkins' youthful companions will also help children at home follow along. Standouts include the title track, "Shabot Shalom," "Maori Battle Chant," and "Did You Feed My Cow?," which appears in two helpful versions.

You'll Sing a Song and I'll Sing a Song

I grew up listening and singing to this music around our kitchen table at dinner time, it was some of the happiest music I had ever heard. Every child should experience the joy of these songs as well as the meanings of these songs. Outstanding! The whole family can get involved no matter what age the child, they absolutely bring everyone together. You will find yourself laughing and giggling and full of joy, I am buying it today just for the treasured and cherished memories I have still to this day and I am 43!

Excellent, durable music for children ! Highly recommended !

We raised our five girls with this album, and they are still referencing the songs in college. The artistic quality Ella Jenkins far outshines a number of the more popular providers of music for children, and we would encourage any parent of small children to have this album in his or her collection of bed-time and trveling music.

Ella's a true master of primary music instruction.

I've been teaching elementary music for 25 years. Ella Jenkins' early material has been a staple in my primary classes. She sings in a perfect range for the child voice and her songs are instructional, simple and easy to sing. This makes a fine gift for your music educator friends. Younger teachers may not be aware of this treasure of an artist.
