Fascinating Creatures (her first album) is good but we prefer the two more recent albums.
Brian K.
Her newest CD, "Mind of My Own", is a rich mix of dance-worthy tunes and soothing melodies, with creative lyrics and sung in Frances's beautiful and distinct voice.

Can't pick a favorite song, but gosh how I love Vacation Delights, High on the Mountainside, and Place in Your Heart.

Frances England's music has grown as her kids have. Her first album, Fascinating Creatures I always give as a gift for parents with new babies (everyone becomes instantly hooked of course, it has some super catchy upbeat songs for the kiddos, the slow songs really tug at the heart strings of every new parent, but she never gets sappy)
And then Family Tree is my gift for families having a second child, (give the song Family Tree a listen to get the gist.) It is a very good well rounded CD as well.
Mind of my Own, the newest album is fantastic and is my family's favorite yet. It celebrates the growing kid, flexing some muscle while exploring their world. As an adult I find myself relating to all of the references, spun in a way that we have never seen before. Very honest and true, from the kid's perspective. The entire album is incredible and offers a wide range of style, tempo and subject matter. (My 4 year old LOVES Jacques Cousteau, so catchy, while Place in Your Heart, with all of it's sentiment is my favorite. Oh, and High on the Mountainside for it's sweet nod to a simpler time)
Great kid's (and adult's) CD.

My kids and I are longtime fans of Frances' sweet melodies and touching and inspiring lyrics. We did not think it would be possible for her to top 2008's wonderful Family Tree, but she did! Mind of My Own is not only her best work to date but I think it just might be the best offering in the entire genre of children's music. I know, I know, shame on me for suggesting someone has trumped legendary long-timers in the genre like Elizabeth Mitchell, Raffi, and Laurie Berkner. You simply need to listen to these songs and you will agree that Frances has placed herself among the elite songwriters and performers in children's music. Enjoy!

We love Frances England! I don't really buy children's music - prefer to listen to appropriate things already in our music collection. The exceptions are Frances England, Elizabeth Mitchell, Peter Paul & Mary, Raffi, and Jack Johnson's Curious George. Anyway, this album is as good as her other two: Fascinating Creatures and Family Tree. I think Family Tree is our favorite. Frances England is a great artist to support - buy her album!

We have all three of Frances England's CDs and my family enjoys all of them. Her newest CD, "Mind of My Own", is a rich mix of dance-worthy tunes and soothing melodies, with creative lyrics and sung in Frances's beautiful and distinct voice. I think my 4-year-old son's favorite song is "Mind of My Own". He like to sing "....dance all night, all night, all night, all night!" My fav is "Place in My Heart" about that special toy or blanket that a child holds dear through many years and a lot of loving.

My son's pre-school has a tradition that on a child's birthday, he donates a book in his name to the class. This year, we decided to share a CD, instead. My son chose to share "Fascinating Creatures", Frances England's first CD, with his class. Everyone loves it!

Mind Of My Own is an upbeat music CD ideal for young listeners age 4-12. The playful rock music is bursting with enthusiasm for all the fun things in life, from riding a bicycle to going on vacation to simply listening to birds sing. High-energy lyrics reflect a pure love for singing and motivational music in this superb album, especially recommended for car trips or children's parties. The tracks are "Mind Of My Own", "Do You Hear The Birds Singing?", "Jacques Cousteau", "Red Balloon", "Ladybug", "Place In Your Heart", "Bicycle", "High On The Mountainside", "Cookies and Milk", "Vacation Delights", "To Be", "Come Back Home", "All The Ways", "Pieces Of Me", and "Big Heart".

Another sweet and perfect CD from Frances England. She has again captured a child's wide-eyed appreciation of the beautiful and amazing world around us, this time around with even more thoughtfulness and very gentle introspection (To Be, Red Balloon). There are some amazing intrumentalists on this album (we love the fiddle!) and that "HEY!" in Jacques Cousteau is just perfect when yelled at the top of your lungs. Can't pick a favorite song, but gosh how I love Vacation Delights, High on the Mountainside, and Place in Your Heart. My son (7 y.o.) would pick Jacques Cousteau, Red Balloon, and Cookies & Milk.

Wish I could do a video review of my daughter dancing around to this fun, witty, lovely music. The first time she put the cd in, she hit repeat on every song, again and again, then she would dance around like crazy, and hit repeat again, until she dropped to the couch, exhausted. I love all of Frances England's work. It makes me happy... and relaxed... and a little more conscious of how great life really is, esp. when you take time to look at it through a child's eyes. Thanks for making the world a more fabulous place, Frances!

Ever since I discovered Frances England's music, it's been a staple in our family. From the baby all the way to the grand-parents, everyone loves it! We have all of her CD's, and they ALL deliver. Her music is fun, rhythmic, and always inspires impromptu dance parties, because it just FEELS good. It's the perfect gift for anyone with children (we gave it to all our family with little ones this year), but be prepared to hear feedback that it got the adults shaking their groove thing too!
