An album of new music for the whole family! It celebrates the joys of childhood, nature, and bubble wrap. The songs range from folk to funk, and include helpful feedback from Princess Backpack, a magical talking backpack from the kingdom of Backpackia.
Benjamin and his backpack, Princess Backpack, spent a lot of time writing these songs for and with kids all over the place. A boy once asked for a song about griffins, so that's on there. A girl once said she had turned her brother to pizza, so they took her at her word and put it in a song. There are pandas, bubble wrap, knocking on doors, jumping, and fighting to stay awake long enough to see your dad when he comes home from work. As far as the music, there's all sorts. Folk, funk, rock, Americana, pop (for the bubble wrap, of course) and more. Lots of fun instruments and music to make you dance and move.
