Singer Songwriter Joe Reilly brings message of environmental stewardship to "Children of the Earth" in new CD
Latest album offers environmental songs for kids of all ages
Joe Reilly is a singer, songwriter and environmental educator at the Leslie Science and Nature Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan. His way of working with children is empowering, inspiring, and educational. Offering an interactive musical program called Children of the Earth, Joe helps people of all ages deepen their relationships with themselves, each other, and with their natural environment. Appropriate for preschool through middle school, Joe brings smiles to audiences while teaching ecology and environmental stewardship with creative lyrics and catchy melodies.
After more than two years of writing songs with and for children, Joe is ready to release a full-length album of environmental songs for kids of all ages. Titled Children of the Earth, the album includes a chorus of kids’ voices singing with Joe and his guitar on several of the twenty-three fun and educational tunes. The songs teach environmental science and ecological stewardship while entertaining kids and adults alike. Children’s voices offer brief interludes between songs as they candidly speak about what is important to them in nature and as they teach us how we can better protect our natural environment. The album offers hope for young and future generations in a time when the stability of our earth’s ecosystems and our place in them can feel uncertain.
