'Native American Songs & Stories for Children Volume One' has over 51 minutes of wonderful Native American stories and original songs for children and adults alike. Sue Straw, Native American singer/songwriter and Native American flute player from Oklahoma, USA has created this special 20-track album of 10 'spoken' Native American stories (and her original opening poem, 'Come') and 10 original songs that complement the stories. Each story includes sound effects and/or background Native American flute music. The original songs include simple, memorable melodies along with Native American flutes, drums, rattles, and other traditional Native American instruments. The songs are easy to sing along with, and the basic rhythmic percussion patterns are also easy to follow and play along with. The stories and songs teach important life lessons based on Native American culture from various tribes. This CD is a valuable resource for parents, teachers, librarians, and others in similar professions as well as those needing materials for Native American Indian Education studies or Character Education studies. Composer Sue Straw performs all the vocals, Native American flutes, and other instruments on this album.
