So you've been to the conference, learnt new songs, bought the T-Shirt and the CD and want to bring the experience back to your church. Kid's Praise Party is the song book that accompanies 'We Wanna Be Like Jesus' and 'Pre-School Praise 4' and comes packed with songs and bonus extras. There are 28 songs in the book, including popular writers Simon Parry, Nick and Becky Drake, Brooke Fraser and Israel Houghton. There are also some golden oldies including "The Wise Man Built His House Upon The Rock" and "Rise And Shine (Arky Arky)". All of them have been set in easy to play and sing keys. The CD includes backing tracks for all of the songs, which are of a very good quality and would easily replace a band if you didn't have one. My only criticism is that the typeset and notation can be a bit small to read when playing. Apart from that quibble, this is a good set of songs that will bring a freshness to your children's worship, and will be even more relevant and immediate for those that attended Spring Harvest this year.
