This young children’s album is a culmination of our hopes and dreams for the next generation. The Tao Te Ching says, “Sow the great in the small. Difficult things of the world are best tackled in their small beginnings.” Research shows us that prejudice forms very early on (at 3-6 months of age!) but that we can interrupt that prejudice when we talk explicitly about our differences, about fairness, about caring, and sharing with all people. We hope this music can inspire young children to exemplify the world we need, and open up conversations in classrooms and households about the challenges and the promise of our times.
Here are 8 rough drafts of the 12 tracks that will be on the album. If you’re willing, we would love any constructive feedback (click here). Thanks for your time and support!
