ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Marla Lewis is one of the best creators of Childrens music in America today. Her songs are irresistibly entertaining and intelligent, filled with a warm wit and happy heart. Choose any of her excellent CD's --you will discover something wonderful."
-- Steve Cahill / President, Songwriters Resource Network

"This is a very well produced children's CD featuring truly rich vocals to go along with a lovely assortment of tunes and styles. The influences and rhythms span the cultural globe from Brazilian, African and Cuban sounds, to big band, classical and country music. The song "Mighty Jackie (The Strikeout Queen)" is sure to be a breakout hit in your car."
– The National Parenting Center

Each song is its own adventure movie. You can step into the rain forest and check out the wildlife; meet the hippo and tortoise who became lifelong friends in Kenya; watch Jackie Mitchell, a small 17 year old girl, strike out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig in an exhibition baseball game (true story!); witness a little girl and her friends bravely stare down a bully....and more. Do you like to talk to plants? Do you have weird dreams? Do you wish you could fly? Do you love Halloween? It's all in here!

One last thing: The song "Leap of Faith" also appears on the Grammy winning CD, "All About Bullies...Big and Small," which won Best Children's Recording in 2011.

Listen and enjoy!

Kudos
"I listened to PLANTS several times this weekend -- the entire family loves it, too! The songs, the singing, the playing, the production. Ooo-la-la. This one has it all! My favorite? Will You Be My Mom? Loved it -- the song itself, of course, but its empowerment (all of us can step in and make a difference in a child's life) and the subliminal call to action were terrific . In My Pocket also reached way out to me.... a tres cool universal song. I think every kid (and adults like my husband, who is a messy-bessy) will really relate to My Room's a Mess. How convenient that the s-l-o-b has nothing to do with the mess! And I'm very familiar with Jackie and Samba and the BW Man, and they're great. Love all of it, really. KUDOS to Marla and to all who helped you bring this gem to life!"

Dr. David I. Kauman, specialist for mommies and their kids

a masterpiece
"I Love to Talk to Plants" is wonderful! Seems to me this music should be in every home. Maybe then we would have more peace in the world. It's a -- masterpiece, plain and simple.

Jeff Brown, K-Too, Juneau, AK

Spooktacular!
Marla's Halloween tune, The Boogey Woogey Man, sounds spooktacular! We will be playing more Tunes from Marla's CD, "I Love to Talk to Plants" on our weekly kids show, so stay tuned!

Billy Jonas, multi-award-winning songwriter/entertainer

Fun and inspiring
I've listened to most of PLANTS so far, its great! I love the arrangements and Marla's voice is deliciously mellifluous. Lots of variety -- very fun, very inspiring. Congratulations on a wonderful mediation of spirit and creativity!!!

Dave Kinnoin, Writer for Disney and Nickelodeon

One of the best
Marla Lewis's "I Love To Talk To Plants" CD will go down in history as one of the best. You really need to hear it. It's a a TOUR DE FORCE if I ever heard one! It helps change this world for the better. Millions of kids and adults and those creatures called teenagers (like mine) need to hear Marla's music. It is so far above the competition.

Patricia Shih, Award winning Songwriter, Children's entertainer,

Truly excellent
Bravo—Plants is truly excellent! I love the variety of the styles of music, Marla's voice is gorgeous as always, songwriting is top notch, the production is impeccable. Congratulations to Marla Lewis on a very, very fine CD, certainly worthy of many honors! Love it!

Dot Rust, musician and music promotor, Portland Oregon

Wow
I just have to say - WOW. I love I LOVE TO TALK TO PLANTS! What great production, songwriting, everything! Beautiful! Once again, Marla nailed all the different styles -- she hit the sweet spot all the way. You won't be disappointed!

Carole Wechter, composer, author and playwright for children

respect for children
I truly enjoyed listening to "I Love to Talk to Plants." It's a wonderful mix of music, lyrics, rhythms, professionalism, and respect for children.

Julie Bennett, Literacy teacher, Australia

Great to inspire reading in children
"Our class sang "I Love to Talk to Plants" with great gusto! Keep up the good work! We had a ball with your music, I will now write a couple of song lyrics out on chart paper for the kids to read and read. Thanks, Marla!"

Susan Salidor, Songwriter and singer for children

lovingly crafted
I Love to Talk to Plants is truly wonderful. Marla's voice sounds fabulous, as usual, and her band (and arrangements) rocks! I especially like "Whenever Celia Sings" and "Sambas Swaying in the Trees." Each song is lovingly crafted and well-produced . This is a children's CD not to be missed.
