Dear Friends, I have been telling everyone I meet about our new CD, EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED and Other Animal Songs for Kids by Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders. I love to sing about the animals featured on this CD. They include wolves, worms, pollinators, geese, gorillas, orcas, pocket mice, orcas (killer whales), butterflies, caterpillars and more. I also sing about wildflowers, habitats, adaptation and how animals, plants and people are connected in nature's web of life. Did you know that animals and plants need each other, or depend on one another, to survive? This is called interdependence, and it happens all the time in nature... Each of my songs on 'EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED and Other Animal Songs for Kids' has examples of interdependence or important relationships betweens animals and plants. Listen and see if you can learn some new things about interdependence. Or perhaps you can write to us and tell us some things you already know about how one animal or plant needs another animal, plant or element to stay alive.

Listen to our Little Pocket Mouse song-in-progress

Category: Animal Songs

Published: Saturday, April 10, 2010

I’m small and furry, watch me scurry! It's the middle of the night and I'm in a hurry To gather seeds I like to eat. And store those seeds inside my cheeks. I'm a little pocket mouse. And when the sun begins to rise, I find my tunnel and I crawl inside. And there I hide the food I found And rest all day 'til the sun goes down. I'm a little pocket mouse. CHORUS: Pocket mouse, oh where's your house? It's underground where I cannot be found. Oh no, no, no! (no, no) I'm a mouse who likes my privacy, So it came as a surprise to me To learn I was hero in the rodent family! It started in 1972 On a spaceship that went around moon. Of all the animals smart and strong Who did the astronauts take along? It was the Little Pocket Mouse! With lots of food in their big cheek pockets, Five little mice boarded that rocket Didn't know much about outer space, but they were glad to help the human race That little pocket mouse! CHORUS: Pocket mouse, oh where's your house? It's underground where I cannot be found. Oh no, no, no! (no, no) I'm a mouse who likes my privacy, So it came as a surprise to me To learn I was hero in the rodent family!

I am writing a new song about the Little Pocket Mouse

Category: Animal Songs

Published: Friday, February 26, 2010

I am currently writing a new animal song for kids about this very cute and rare rodent. The Pacific Pocket Mouse, a subspecies of the Little Pocket Mouse, is on the U.S. Endangered Species List. It is classified as an endangered animal in California. . . I first learned about the Little Pocket Mouse when i went on a hike in San Onofre State Beach in San Clemente, California. There I learned that the Pacific Pocket Mouse was a hero of sorts, because it's endangered status is one of the key things that kept a new toll road from being built right through its habitat in San Onofre State Beach. When an animal has been declared endangered, wildlife protection laws usually also protect their habitat, and it very difficult to get approval to build on that habitat or put a road through it. San Onofre is a very beautiful park and many people believe that the Little Pacific Pocket Mouse saved this park from being nearly destroyed! . . . Whenever I write an new animal song for kids, I first learn as much as I can about the animal. . . I am still writing my Little Pocket Mouse song and look forward to adding it to my collection of animal songs for kids.

Listen to our new song PLANT A HABITAT

Category: Animal Songs

Published: Sunday, October 11, 2009

While i was writing my kids' song I ALMOST KISSED A BUTTERFLY, I learned that plants were very important to butterflies, birds and many of the creatures that we share our neighborhoods with. Plants provide food and shelter for our animal friends, and some animals will only eat very specific plants. This knowledge inspired me to write a new animal song for kids named, Plant a Habitat.
