Featuring 16 fun and inspiring songs, “Songs to Heal Our Planet” promises to delight listeners, while at the same time raising awareness about a variety of environmental issues. It uses music to engage young people in learning more about the natural world. Because of the enthusiasm generated by the Save The Whales song (found on home page), additional songs were written by the composer, Joan Cobb. Some of the compositions are “Condor, Condor,” words and music written by a girl when she was 11, and “Whales Are Chubby,” a poem written by an eight-year old boy and put to music by Joan. Background includes the Beluga Children’s Chorus comprised of eight girls, ages 6-12. MaggyMay Trout sings the original song on the website at age 11. Now 16, she is soloist on many of the Songs Justin Gaudoin, age 16, is the rapper and Tyler Tolles, age 17, the percussionist on “Whale Rap.” Tyler also plays percussion on most of the tracks. Ryan Hogans, age 18, solos on “Earth Day” and “Keep It Green.”
“After hearing SONGS TO HEAL OUR PLANET, I recommend it for children of all ages. The songs are up-beat and very pleasing to the ear. The lyrics give children good instructions for helping our planet’s environment.”
– Nathalie Plotkin, Music and Drama Critic of the Monterey County Herald
“As a fourth grade teacher for 30 years, I would like to recommend the wonderful CD that was made by children, for children, encouraging all of us to take care of Mother Earth. The songs and music are catchy and heartfelt. My students would ask for the songs and we would sing and dance to many of them. It fits wonderfully with any science, music, poetry, language arts, and even art units, as the songs set the mood for wonderful creative ideas. Earth Day is coming up, conservation, and how strongly we are all interconnected.”
– Iris Sullivan, 4th Grade Teacher All Saints’ Episcopal Day School, Carmel, CA
