“PJ Library sends free Jewish children’s books to families across the world every month. We know that something magical happens when parents sit down together to read with their children. PJ Library shares Jewish stories that can help your family talk together about values and traditions that are important to you. ” I had the opportunity to chat with Meredith Lewis who is the Director of Content at the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and PJ Library. We talked about the PJ Library program’s beginnings as well as PJ Listen and their new podcast ‘Have I Got A Story For You’.
It’s Purim! One of the most festive times on the Jewish calendar! Make sure that you celebrate with all that PJ Library has to offer your family, you can sign up at the link here!
I can’t really say much more about Purple Fox and the Heebie Jeebies than this: “Hand crafted Progressive Funk with sweet caramelized ear candy and subtle nutty Reggae overtones that fills a void on the Children’s Music Scene.” Tasty! Be sure to check out ‘Belching Fire’ from the Halloween themed album ‘Something’s Brewing it’s Halloween’. You’re kids (and you) will love it!`
“Kare Strong began her creative life as a poet but it wasn’t until she discovered songwriting that she found her creative home. “My songs are tender stories,” says Kare. “They are woven from the innocence of children, faeries, and the beautiful natural world, then sprinkled with joy, poetry and imagination.” Her family music celebrates her deep admiration and appreciation for animals, nature and children. Her association with Josh began as student to his teacher and their relationship as collaborative peers has created magic.” I loved talking to Kare about everything from her musical partnership with Josh Goforth to Faeries and so much more! Be sure to check out her song ‘The Cherry Tree’.
It’s an international edition of the Good Stuff Kids Podcast this week as I had a conversation with Marisa from Young Folkies: “Young Folkies is a regular live music session for babies and toddlers (0-5yrs) based in North East London run by professional musician and singer Marisa (Marisa is a parent too!). Marisa plays folky, acoustic versions of nursery rhymes and original new songs. Puppets and toys only add to the sing-along fun.” I love getting the opportunity to talk to people who are not in the United States and trying to get a feel for what’s going on for kids and families in other places. Make sure to listen all the way to the end of the episode to hear the song ‘Be You’.
