Album Notes
"Instantly likeable!"---Billboard Magazine

National PARENTS' CHOICE Spring 2009 Audio Award Winner

"Monet's choice of songs and arrangements captures the timeless grace and innocence of early childhood. The re-issue includes nineteen traditional and original songs, such as "Goin' to a Restaurant," "Shake Your Boompa," "Genny's Gettin' Up," and the very clever "Hearts and Hands," which has become a classic song to teach sign language. The album includes songs in Spanish and English and provides some simple but very effective renditions of traditional tunes such as "Chickadee," "La Bamba," "Candy Man," and "Get on Board." Uncluttered musical arrangements and sweet sounding children's choruses back Monet's gentle and nurturing voice." Parents' Choice Foundation
By three-time national Parents' Choice Foundation Award winner, My Best Friend, songs to grow on, is brimming with enthusiasm for life and friendship.

My Best Friend is a joy-filled collection of interactive songs that honor love of self and family. Originally released in the 90's when it appeared in Billboard Magazine in a review about "first ladies of children's music", it is newly release in its sparkling remastered and repackaged, eco-friendly “digipak”, by Monet and her fellow artist/engineer, husband, Rick St. Charles. It joins Circle Time, Songs and Rhymes for the Very Young, and Tingaleyo, a bilingual treasure trove of songs in Spanish and English from many countries. Three more titles are scheduled to be re-released in the coming months.

Lisa Monet, songwriter, performing/recording artist and educator, has lived and performed in Argentina, Spain, Mexico and the Pacific Northwest. Each album features her warm vocals, lush harmonies, classical/folk guitars, and dancing percussion.

This collection of children's music CDs was launched with the couple's first child, Matthew, and further inspired by his sister, Genny. Now a thriving family music business, Circle Sound Productions includes Matt as technical consultant and Genny as cover and graphic artist.

My Best Friend, for ages 4 and up, retails for $14.98.

Saint Chuck

My favorite Lisa Monet album
It's a tough call because all her albums are so listenable, so good, but this one has a particular personal charm all its own, especially the title track. And the backup singers of the Redwood Coast Children's Chorus really makes it shine--they're world-class. Check 'em out on "Goin' to a Restaurant" and "We All Sing with the Same Voice", among others.

This album is truly sweet! I really enjoy her poetic range, the wonderful rhythms, and her positive inspirational messages. Lisa has done an outstanding job once again of storytelling through song. I am super excited to share this wonderful collection with my sister who is having her first baby, (at 40 years young!), in November. Muchas gracias!!!

Liked it so much I bought it twice!
This was our first Lisa Monet CD and my little boys and I enjoyed it so much we bought an extra to give to friends.
"Stop, Look and Listen" is a favorite of my 5 year old and I personally LOVE the restaurant song!
Lisa has the voice of an angel! She is just magical!

What a great way to great to invite the children to school in the morning. Lisa Monet's new CD titled My Best Friend , is full of enthusiasm, with songs the children can relate to. It would be a great one to play in the morning as you are inviting children to your classroom. Lisa is such a wonderful musician for children. I've seen her play for children at a local concert . The children just flock to her, even the shy ones. Within minutes they are singing and dancing right along with her. I purchased her Tangeleo CD for our school. We were playing it when one of our Spanish speaking students came in the door. Her face lit up like sunshine when she heard music in Spanish. Lisa is a gift to children.

A super must-have CD for every child or child-like person!
I have been listening to Lisa Monet's music for almost 20 years with my children who range in age from 6 to 20! I never tire of it. She has such a cheerful voice and a great sense of rhythm and harmony. I love to sing right along with the CD. It is fun to dance to and makes long trips in the car enjoyable. We keep a variety of shakers and tooters and drummers around and the children have been known to put the CD in and have a music festival in the living room! Thank you for providing such quality inspiring entertainment.

Review for Lisa Monet's CD, "My Best Friend"
Lisa Monet is our musical bi-lingual heroine for young kids. Her clear, enchanting, soaring voice and whimsical on-stage presence captivates and engages children in singing along with her everywhere she goes. On this CD, we're charmed by her gentle humor, the impressive variety of songs, and the positive, singable lyrics. Best of all, Lisa's music is a treat for adults, too!!
