Multi-instrumentalist and expressive vocalist Megan Schoenbohm follows up her debut CD, “Bubba & Boo” with well-crafted pop melodies providing young children with food for thought (the title track, “Good Humans”), lyric hugs (“Wherever You Go”) and playful bounce. Among the highlights: “A Bird and a Bee and a Hedgehog”—a sweet invitation to a sunny day of fun and loving inclusion—and a kid’s affectionate tribute to “My Teacher,” who “makes everyone feel special.”
