This is my first CD of Joanie Bartels. I want to get the other 7 that she has done, as I am so impressed by this one. She sings so clearly and with so much joy you can hear her smile as she sings!
My 4 y.o. daughter and I listen to this every morning on the way to school. Once you start getting to know the songs, the last tracks are extra fun since they are just the instrumental versions. Joanie's voice and the simplicity of the arrangements make this very attainable music for all young children.

Joanie Bartels records beautiful lullabies and children's song. When my son was born, the best gift I received was a tape of beautiful lullabies (cassette tapes in those days). Now, I give a collection of these CD's as gifts. I highly recommend these for those who love to sing along and then leave baby's room with beautiful music playing that will soothe baby and parent alike. My son, who's now 21, is a singer-songwriter. Maybe it all started with those tapes... Regardless, music soothes the soul, and Bartels is a winner.

I - We! - listened to this tape since the time my kids were toddlers. It is wonderful! Upbeat, positive, warm, feel-good music, meant for kids but easy to listen to for all ages. My kids are now 14 and 17, and I am ordering a cd version for both myself, and my 50 year old sister - we both still love the CD!

Joanie Bartels has a lovely voice and does a fantastic job of interpreting these delightful songs. Putting this CD on in the morning makes me "put on a happy face," in the words of one of the songs. When our 23 year old daughter was little, she listened to this every single morning. I recently ordered it for our grandchildren--and now I'm wondering how we ever lost the first CD and why it took me so long to get another one. All those wasted mornings!
