Jory sings songs that speak to children's hearts and minds: songs about laying in the grass and greeting the stars, life-cycle of a caterpillar, the pleasures of being a well pampered 'lap cat'....and many more!
Jory is joined by a host of wonderful musicians. This compilation includes songs plucked from all of her recordings, into a special group of songs that 'Actively Explore Our World!'
Without being 'preachy' or laying guilt trips on young children, to 'save the planet', Jory infuses an appreciation of nature: animals, plants, stars, and more.
The songs encourage singing along, and can be connected to curriculum. "90 percent of what children learn, they learn from the neck down." (Bev Boss) These songs will have children crawling, shaking, wiggling, meowing....and so on!
Jory is an early childhood educator and a music specialist. She delights in how responsive young children are to music, and has years of experience of engaging children in music: schools, libraries, concert tours, classroom visits, teacher trainings, conferences, and festivals.
