Kreartive Kids seemed to take on a life of its own the longer we worked on it. Maybe “work” is not the operative word here, because the creative process was just plain fun; the same kind of fun that we decided to turn into a storytelling experience, through the recording of a CD. Even that became an ongoing experience, because we decided that words and music were great, but wouldn’t it be greater still for kids to hear sound effects. Wanda was a farm girl, and there were many fabulous sounds we could introduce, bringing the experience to life, for kids who have never been on a farm.
Susan narrates the stories and Sharon’s music enriches the adventures: from climbing mountains, looking for the rainbow’s end, to planting secret seeds and watching them grow. There is a joyful energy that we hope children will respond to by becoming creatively involved in the words and the music. Our “Little Bear” CD, for very young children, would make wonderful bedtime story listening. The “Wanda” stories bring to life, a world of adventure for young and older children.
