Ella Jenkins: 50 Years of Children’s Music

If you haven’t introduced your little ones to Ella Jenkins yet, run now to your nearest library and scoop up what you can.

She has been making children’s music and doing nearly everything else related to children’s music for 50 years.

Fifty years!

And she just released her latest album, A Life of Song (“latest album”…she’s 87…more albums to come?).

Oh I want to be like her when I grow up.

In the clip below, I love how she says the children politely educated her on how Okeechobee really is. Watch it twice, and you’ll see how effortlessly she teaches a song. Then you’ll probably hum the melody for hours after.

Gentle brilliance.

Hugs to Ella Jenkins!

[Great vibes from great people. Thanks.]
