This double album (there's a 15-song 'Bonus' CD) contains a good selection of the most recent praise songs arranged for children by those dependable people at Spring Harvest. Matt Weeks and Dan Weeks have produced the album and included over 30 lively songs by the likes of Dave Godfrey ("You Know"), David Ruis ("Every Move I Make") and Nigel Hemming ("Down On My Knees"). They're performed with skill and energy by a very capable set of musicians (including the aforementioned Messrs Weeks) and have some great vocals, which include some clearly enthusiastic kids' voices. The songs are great for children but they are in no way patronising, and would equally appeal to older people. If you already have a good number of children's worship CDs in your collection, you may feel you don't need this one, but if you haven't, then this is well worth getting hold of. As ever with Spring Harvest products, this is a really good example of British worship aimed at children but accessible to people of all ages. Pull on your dancing pumps and get down with the grandchildren!
