Wee Chant is a lively collection of chants, songs & lullabies from around the world. Marylee sings these same fun and simple at her parent music enrichment class called "Wee Chant."
Getting modern-day parents to sing with their babies is no small feat. Many would have considered themselves "too cool" to sing-along just a few months before the birth of their babies. But singing opens the door to future literacy and bonds mother and father to child as few human activities can do.
