"R" in the Car

For Kids of All Ages

Alida Engel was inspired to make this CD when she realized that most of the families she works with practice their speech on the go - and most do so in the car.

Jay Mankita was called "one of the half dozen best songwriters today" by Pete Seeger. For over 25 years, Jay has been playing guitar, composing and performing his original songs for both children and adults. To find out more about Jay and his other CDs go to www.jaymankita.com.

Some tips to remember
before you get started:

  • Be patient. Learning to sing along takes repeated listening.

  • Work at mastering one or two words at a time.

  • Pick your favorites - you don't have to learn it all.

  • Adults should exaggerate the R as they sing along.
