It isn't easy to teach children the Bible, to trust God and to worship him but this sixth compilation from Spring Harvest conveys these messages in a generally well-produced, entertaining way. The album is packaged with a second CD providing backing tracks and the production is by that always reliable keyboard maestro Mark Edwards. The first song, by Doug Horley, "Hi 5" is a rap with body moving lyrics. Memorising the books of the Bible is easy with Dave Godfrey's "66 Books, 1 Author" to the rhythm of "Spirit In The Sky" - clever! Matt Redman's "Our God" has meaningful words but the '80s Howard Jones-like vocal is a bit annoying. Becky and Nick Drake contribute two of the best songs here with "God Is Here" and "Our God's Generous". The last track is a version of the Newsboys' "I Am Free". All in all, up to the usual standards of the Kids Praise Party series.

Spring Harvest Kids Praise Party 6 has been made by people who know what kids love about pop music and the way lyrics get stuck in their minds. Kids love to sing and dance, so these 16 songs of Jesus, love and hope will spill over into their lives in a fun and funky way.
These are songs that won't drive parents mad or leave kids leaders bewildered. They come from our special Kids Praise Party factory where the only cheese is in the sandwiches and the only thing that's repetitive is the desire to hear them again! They're good to play, Scripturally sound and use only the very best real-life musicians to create a sound that's authentic.
