Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Sweet Honey in the Rock, the world-renowned, award-winning female African American ensemble performs a cappella on a delightfully buoyant and positive new CD aimed at teaching kids some of life's basic lessons in 18 exuberant, non-preachy songs. The joyful sound of six magically interwoven voices and upbeat advice - utilizing folk, gospel, jazz, blues and even rap styles - will appeal to children and parents alike.

Amazon.com

Though there's long been an educational component within the socially conscious music of Sweet Honey in the Rock, this release targeted at the children's educational market has the ebullience to capture the ears of young and old alike. Most of the performances are either a cappella (sometimes with handclaps) or with percolating African percussion, as the harmonies and call-and-response arrangements reinforce the joys of learning. From the life's lessons of "4 U 2 Know as U Grow" through the traditional spiritual of "Do What the Spirit Say Do" and the poetry of "Chinese Proverb," the music aims to delight rather than preach. The soulful transcendence of "Right Now" sounds closer to a female version of Earth Wind & Fire than to Sesame Street, while the message of self-empowerment has rarely sounded as sweet as it does on "All I Have to Do." --Don McLeese

Could Experience 101 have been better? No. No. No.
Mothers love their children differently, not better.
Experience 101 sings songs differently without its founder. Yet it could not be better.

Listen to "Chinese Proverb." Wouldn't it make a great global anthem?

A blast of "Dog Dog" would make even a cat happy.

I saw Sweet Honey in the Rock when I was in college. I happened to see this CD and just purchased it. I was expecting their usual socially positive message. What I got was a great CD for my children to hear and for me to share with others. I am purchasing for the all the young children in my life and an extra copy for a charter school.

I got this CD not realizing it was for kids. After hearing it, I had to keep it in my collection. Super rhythms, and super messages! Even though the songs were written for kids, they can apply to most everyone! I did order 2 more for a couple of my favorite kids!

This CD is fantastic! My two year old repeatedly asks for "the Dog song". But even the adults can't help but get up and move to the rythm! Great lessons, and great sounds. I love it.
