Did you see the wind today?

Many of these songs will be remembered from the ABC's famous "Kindergarten of the Air" radio program. The 25 songs are relevant to a child's day, beginning at dawn and ending at bed-time.

This extremely popular recording was originally released on cassette. As our stock of cassettes has now completely dried up we have re-released it on CD.

The recording uses a wide variety of musical styles and sounds. It features songs for under 5s (although 6 and 7 year olds seem to love it, too). It Includes 14 songs by Zoë McHenry, the prolific children's songwriter of ABC radio's "Kindergarten of the Air" program of the 1950s.

Zoë's songs make a language link between the child and the natural world and they stretch children's imagination. Early childhood workers have welcomed this collection for its clarity, uncomplicated backings and variety of sounds. Nominated for best children's cassette in the 1988 ARIA awards, it is still charming little ones of today. A classic.
