Familiar with her work, yes, and have never heard anything from her that's not top-notch.

But I always find that I completely overthink which album or songs by a first-rate artist to use as an entry point for my kids. In this case, I'd just go with either the Amazon bestseller ("You'll Sing a Song and I'll Sing a Song") or just download a grab-bag of tracks from iTunes or eMusic.

The most popular on the latter, by the way, are:

Pick a Bale of Cotton
Go Tell Aunt Rhodie
Wade in the Water
I Am a Funny Little Dutch Girl
Did You Feed My Cow?
Play Your Instruments and Make a Pretty Sound
Wake Up, Little Sparrow
Did You Feed My Cow?
It's a Holiday
Racing With The Sun

Chris, that's exactly what I'm looking for! I'll do that.

Thanks so much.

My daughter got two things just for her on Sunday: 1. Cookie cutters in shape of letters. 2. Lady, a Thomas train just for her.

thanks for the post

Ella Jenkins is an amazing woman. I'm glad I found your post and got to learn about her.

Have you heard of Jim Copp and Ed Brown?

They are another good resource for children's songs and stories. http://playhouserecords.com/

Jim Copp is a great resource. He has a great website with all his children songs. Highly recommended.
