a Hootenanny !
About Lovin’ the Earth
For Ages 1 –101
by Heidi Howe
it’s not a book. But it’s so unbelievably good, I want this
recommendation to reach as many people as possible.)
wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend the album “Give a
Hootenanny!” to every
earth conscious kid, teacher, parent, grandparent, and anyone else
between the ages of 1 – 101.
a Hootenanny, Earth Consciousness meets Kentucky Bluegrass in a way
that will knock your socks off !
all, the lyrics are amazing. With
great clarity and sensitivity, Heidi Howe managed to write fun and
upbeat songs that teach and bring awareness to honoring, appreciating
and taking care of the planet, as well as the human body.
learning research is continually proving the many benefits of music in
learning. This cd is an
outstanding testimony to that. The important messages about taking care
of the earth are delivered so rhythmically
that most listeners will find themselves singing them when they
least expect it. The songs are full of so many great earth conscious
phrases that will etch themselves into the memory of the listeners in a
way that few classroom lessons could match.
music, the beat, and the rhythm will have even the most skeptical person
bopping around in no time. I
have to admit, I have never been a fan of country music but Heidi Howe
is forcing me to reexamine my beliefs.
The lyrics have been beautifully married to outstanding Kentucky
bluegrass sounds and rhythms. I
can’t help bouncing around when I listen to the music. The music is really fun.
This is a great album to enjoy in the classroom, at home
or in the car - when you want to bring in a burst of energy.
It is really good music to dance or jump around to.
a doubt, Heidi Howe has broken the mold of any musical genre that I have
been exposed to. It is
truly a delight to be introduced to such enlightened music.
As an educator committed to helping raise awareness of the
planet, it is so exciting to see someone offer such a wonderful
album is available on her web site – www.heidihowe.com.
The cost is $10 and a portion of the profit goes to charity.
At that price, I recommend buying as many as you can and giving
them out as gifts !
