CD review and giveaway: The Good Ms. Padgett Sings The Little Red Hen

Recently I received a kids' CD from an artist that I was unfamiliar with, The Good Ms. Padgett.  As soon as we listened to the CD, I was so glad to have learned about her, she's terrific! Here's a bit about The Good Ms. Padgett, from her website:
The Good Ms. Padgett is the name given Anna Padgett by her Brooklyn, New York preschool music students.  The Good Ms. Padgett sings songs and stories that are wise, joyful, and never condescending, enjoyed by children and parents alike. 
The Good Ms. Padgett began when preschool teacher and songwriter Anna Padgett first became a mom.  Originally a collaboration with musicians from Padgett’s band The Naysayer (www.thenaysayer.com) – Ruth Keating and Matt Sutton (the Malarkies, Ida) and James Baluyut (+/-, Versus) – The Good Ms. Padgett’s self-titled first release (2009) presented 18 original songs that were: “sweet, soothing, and… fun to sing along with.” (theopinionatedparent.com)
The CD that we received is called The Good Ms. Padgett Sings The Little Red Hen. It's a fabulous combination of storytelling and singing, with The Good Ms. Padgett telling four classic children's stories- "The Little Red Hen", "Henny Penny", "Goldilocks", and "The Billy Goats Gruff".


This artist has a lovely voice, and she really brings the stories to life in a fun and musical way.  The CD definitely kept my kids' attention and mine as well! This CD will be released on March 20, 2012, so keep your eyes open for it then!
