Product Description

Listen. You can hear the lives and dreams of children from many cultures dancing through these bouncy international rhythms. Sarah's joyous songs touch the place inside that makes us strong and connects us to each other and to our wonderful, magical Earth. Dance along to "The Journey Dance" (a perfectly silly movement song that invites you to pretend you are dancing through peanut butter, applesauce and marshmallows); learn to "Talk It Out" (a catchy zydeco tune about making up after an argument with your best friend); visit the ocean and rainforest with "White Whales" (based on a true story) and the "Mahogany Tree"; meet and make friends with children from all over the world and learn about other cultures in the "Other Side of The World" and "Walls and Bridges". Magical Earth is a triple Award Winner. Ages 5 and up

Review

Finger-picked Appalachian dances mix easily with Caribbean-inspired beats, traditional Italian folk-tunes, Louisiana zydeco and Navajo chants. Versatile performer Sarah Pirtle, musician's musician, has an earnest view of the world, its inhabitants, and their music. -- Parents' Choice

If you want to hear some of the best children's songs out there today, listen to Sarah Pirtle! -- Pete Seeger

Sarah Pirtles strongest children's recording to date. This is no small statement since her previous two children's recordings are award winners themselves...strong songwriting, beautiful harmonies and excellent varied arrangements. There's not a weak song on the tape." -- School Library Journal, July, 1994

Sure to speak to the hearts of those who listen...My children love it. -- Parent Council 1995

This whole recording has a reassuring, civilized, gentle, joyous-but-never-raucous tone. An array of musical styles are represented, from island and world rhythms to clawhammer country, and lyrics in English, Spanish, Italian and Navaho are incorporated into the songs. But Pirtle's lovely voice unifies all the pieces. These are true songs, not sound bytes designed to capture some youngster's fleeting attention and they reflect a vision of humanity in harmony with the Earth. -- Sing Out Magazine Vol 39 #2

My daughter listens to Sarah Pirtle a lot. We sing-a-long with the tape in the car and enjoy listening to it all of the time. Thank you Sarah for your wonderful inspriration and love that you bring out with your music.

As with Sarah's other albums, this one is fabulous! My children and I know all the words to all the songs -- they stay in your heart. She writes about the environment, animals, conflict resolution. Perfect for children and adults alike -- my kids started really understanding at age 4 or 5. They are easy for children to sing and dance to, and are perfect for car rides, too.
