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.

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!

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!

I recently became aware of this album and I have to say, it's a bright spot in a sometimes cloudy world. This cheery music can really lift the spirit. (I especially like the syncopated snare drum on the title track, Mind of My Own.) Definitely good stuff for young minds, too. The lyrics are smarter than most lyrics in music for adults. So is the music. And every kid should know about Jacques Cousteau! For that song alone, the album is worthwhile. What a great effort.

I am relatively new to Frances England -- several months ago I found I kept coming across her name when reading other music we've liked. My wife and I have a 2-year-old daughter. We all absolutely love this album (her most recent). I also think Family Tree is utterly fantastic. Fascinating Creatures (her first album) is good but we prefer the two more recent albums.
Frances England writes beautiful songs that celebrate the joy and wonder of childhood. I would love the lyrics as simply poems but with the wonderful music too her songs are a real treasure.
Frances is an amazing songwriter, musician, and singer. I absolutely love listening to her lush voice. I find it to be more agreeable to listen to over and over than some of the most vocally "bright" music like Laurie Berkner, although she has her place too. Vocally, she is more similar to Elizabeth Mitchell, whom we also like. In terms of comparing Frances England to Elizabeth Mitchell, they both have a folk influence, but Frances has several songs that are more like acoustic rock than strictly folk. Elizabeth writes some of her own songs but also does a lot of her own versions of folk songs, whereas Frances writes all her songs. And they are great!
Favorites on this album include the title track, which is a great upbeat song sung from the perspective of a toddler/preschooler (many of her songs are from the perspective of a kid) proposing some ingenious ideas such as "we could decorate the room with a hundred balloons" and "we could have lollipops for breakfast!" which mommy and daddy put the brakes on. Another favorite is "Place In Your Heart" which my daughter asks for as the "Wha-ah-oh-ooh" song because of the chorus.

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".
