A Note About the Making of this Album

The two- to five-year-old students of Bolton Hill Nursery conceived of all the creatures, places, and events imagined in the fantastical story-songs on this album. Every member of each class was invited to name an element to include in a song and I worked with each group to outline the narratives. I composed the lyrics and music, incorporating as many of the initial suggestions as possible.

Each class drew pictures inspired by their song and I assembled collages from these drawings to illustrate the lyrics. The covers, tracklist, notes, and end page illustrations are specially commissioned drawings by my students, edited together digitally for this album.*
