We intend to include kids in our future projects!

A large percentage of children these days  (up to 60%) is growing up in big cities or urban areas.

As a result they are less likely to get direct experiences in nature, let alone wild nature.

Music is a tool to spark and inspire children to get interested and involved in wild nature. So far 3 kids songs have been written. About redwoods in California, whales in Hawaii, and the Kabini River in India. 
We will jump at the next opportunity to record these songs, and make them part of one of our projects.

 

The Tall Tree  (for kids)

 

The tree is very tall
The tree is very tall
As tall as a house with thirty floors

How did it get so tall?
How did it get so tall?
It started out so little and so small

It asked the sun
'Can I have some of your yellow beams?'
It asked the rain
'Can you please bring me your clear blue
streams?'

And then
-Just like that-
Began to grow!

*

The tree is very wide
The tree is very wide 
To hug it, you need more than 20 arms!

The tree has many charms
The tree has many charms
It gives us air to breathe for free
 

Stands so quiet, high above the mists
It's hard to believe 
That such a tree exists!  
                           

But yes
-Just like that-
The tall tree stands



The tree is very old 
The tree is very old
It lived for more than a thousand years
                                                                                                                         

How did it grow so old?        
How did it grow so old?
Through winter storms out there in the cold

Kept stretching its branches
Way up in the sky
Cause when it saw the clouds
Was eager to say hi

And then
-Just like that-
The years went by
