Orange Sherbet ~ Delicious

Orange Sherbet
Release May 15th

For our 2nd Children's Music Monday I am featuring Orange Sherbet which features songs about foods that helps kids want to try new foods through fun, upbeat, jazzy music. This 17 song CD features a celebration of foods from the 4 seasons - Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter - and it also teaches them about growing and preparing foods.

When I first heard Delicious I loved it - it reminded me of the Farmer's Market and all the veggies and fun smells & stuff you see. It turns out Orange Sherbet has been known to sing at the Farmer's Market! The music is fun, features kids learning about great food and encourages them to try new things. 

Tamsen Fynn says:
"Everyone who worked on the CD needed regular lunch breaks, because we all got so hungry listening to the tempting descriptions of rice and beans, sauteed vegetables or al dente pasta. This might be the first time a child who hears our music wants to taste bok choy, rutabaga and mustard greens!"

Delicious is going to be released on 5/15 and you will be able to purchase it on and

Here are a few ideas on how to get kids to eat and enjoy FRESH veggies and fruit this summer!
- Provide them with a plastic knife so they can help you cut softer veggies like zucchini, green beans, yellow squash & celery (you do the harder things like carrots). You may want to cut bigger foods in half so there is a flat side to hold the veggie flat to make it easier to cut.
- Read Stone Soup, listen to it on the CD and then make your own pot of Stone Soup! Activity Guide
- Take your children with you to the Farmers Market on Saturday or Sunday and let them each pick out a veggie or fruit they would like to try that week. The neat thing about the Farmer's Market is that often you'll find heirloom veggies that are different from anything you'll find in the store. There are purple sweet peppers, tomatoes in all kinds of colors, wheatgrass drinks, and more!
