My Best Friend
'Instantly likeable!'---Billboard Magazine National PARENTS' CHOICE Spring 2009 Audio Award Winner 'Monet's choice of songs and arrangements captures the timeless grace and innocence of early childhood. The re-issue includes nineteen traditional and original songs, such as 'Goin' to a Restaurant,' 'Shake Your Boompa,' 'Genny's Gettin' Up,' and the very clever 'Hearts and Hands,' which has become a classic song to teach sign language. The album includes songs in Spanish and English and provides some simple but very effective renditions of traditional tunes such as 'Chickadee,' 'La Bamba,' 'Candy Man,' and 'Get on Board.' Uncluttered musical arrangements and sweet sounding children's choruses back Monet's gentle and nurturing voice.'
