Get Moving with Ella Jenkins: Music for the Little Ones

Get Moving with Ella Jenkins

In this lively CD, Ella Jenkins, “The First Lady of Children’s Music,” performs 15 children’s songs that incorporate music, movement, and play. Get Moving with Ella Jenkins is drawn from some of the finest recordings created during Ella’s legendary career as a music educator and children’s entertainer. It includes such classic tunes as “Head and Shoulders,” “London Bridge Is Falling Down,” “Follow the Leader,” and “Skip to My Lou.”

Get Moving is a delightful compilation of movement-inspiring songs by this true pioneer of children’s music. Now in her nineties, Ella continues to enthusiastically encourage children to hop, skimp, jump , clap, dance, move, and play to the music.
