Pocketful of Wonder

PreS-Gr 3—Author/singer/songwriter Sarah Pirtle's latest release of children's music is filled with songs about animals, nature, and family. From "Let's Go Outside" to "Spring Singer" to "My Grandmas Love Me," this collection of 16 folk songs is infused with fun and gentle lyrics that are accompanied by fiddle or mandolin, guitar or banjo. Each song tells a story, such as a child discovering all of the marvels that one can find outside in "Pocketful of Wonder" and the birth of a plant in "A Seed Knows What to Do." Pirtle's clear, beautiful tone will be soothing to most children and could easily be used in evening story times, in preparation for nap time, or during those quieter times at home. A very strong addition to most collections.—Veronica Schwartz De Fazio, Plainfield Public Library District, IL
