Bears, Bees & Butterflies

Ages: 2 - 7Producer: Paul Helou


Paul Helou, a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, accompanied by other talented acoustic musicians, celebrates nature with country-flavored earworm tunes set in a fanciful world where a “happy, snappy, buzzy, fuzzy” bumblebee dances through a garden; a fire-breathing dragon’s treasure is its heart of gold, bears “dance to the rustling of the leaves in the wind,” and children are urged to “shine out with your bright light.” Note: Helou’s cheery, carefully enunciated vocal approach skews to the younger ages in the album’s suggested age range.
