Reaching for the Moon and Other Wisdom Tales by Jenni Cargill-Strong & Greg Sheehan
The ancestral tales of wisdom contained in Reaching for the Moon have been lovingly reinterpreted for a modern audience. All of the stories are inspired by Elisa Pearmain’s book “Storytelling to Prevent Bullying and build character: 99 folktales from around the world.”
The musical soundscape is lush: with hang and percussion by renowned percussionist Greg Sheehan, guitar by award-winning musician and member of “The Curly Cousins” Rochelle Wright, vocals by Jenni and Rochelle and mandolin and fiddle by Chris Aronsten.
This double album Reaching for the Moon can be enjoyed by the whole family and is perfect for rest time, bed time, long car trips, holidays or anytime! The tales and songs are also highly suitable for pre-school and primary school settings and can be enjoyed alone or used in conjunction with the rich follow-up activities in Pearmain’s book.
