Tracks 6, 8, 10, 13 are waiting for a children’s chorus to sing on the songs choruses. Track 6 may also receive some additional instrumentation.

The finished recording will probably include 2 CD’s on the One World Family Theme, one for young children (ages 4 – adult), the other for older children (age 9 – adult).
It will very likely also provide curriculum suggestions for teachers around the different songs and tales.
