Calling all Kids! Come join musician Harold Wiebe on a spirited romp around the solar system. From the Caribbean flavour of Solar System Seeker to the softer, contemplative tone of The Great Beyond, these fifteen songs span a variety of musical genres from jazz to country to good old rock and roll. There are songs for each of the eight major planets, the Sun, the Moon, comets and gravity – even tiny dwarf planet Pluto hasn’t been forgotten! As a useful bonus, Harold has included instrumental tracks of all fifteen songs – a perfect accompaniment for children when they sing the songs at home or school.
Educational, entertaining and just plain fun, the songs were written by elementary school teacher Alan Harkness as a means of integrating science, language arts and music in his classroom.
Be warned – kids of all ages are intrigued by the wonders of outer space and they’ll love these songs. You’ll soon hear them being sung enthusiastically around home and outside at recess!
Songs by Alan Harkness. Produced, arranged and performed by Harold Wiebe
