Once Upon A Rhyme' is CJ's first recording. It was originally introduced in 1994 in a 'rap' version, but was redone in more of a 'sing-song' format in 1997. This album is CJ's first collaboration with Shirley Handy. The concept was simple: Bring back the old favorite traditional tales, but make them hip and modern for today's classroom. This collection of tales has original lyrics and melodies, and each song is guaranteed to get kids engaged in the story and text. Perfect for classroom use!
