ABCs + 123s
LoveBug & Me Music’s teacher-founder Mary Arden Gorman’s light, easy-on-the-ear soprano and the voices of children who join her welcome little listeners to sing along with inviting arrangements of original, traditional, and contemporary songs. Gorman’s tuneful lessons in the ABCs, letter sounds, and numbers are accompanied by top-flight musicians, and, underscoring the sweet spirit of togetherness that fuels the album, Gorman includes a few tracks in Spanish, as well as appealing renditions of the Beatles’ “All Together Now,” and “Count on Me,” the Bruno Mars hit (composed by Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine).
