A mother of three children with autism, Lindsay Munroe is a passionate advocate for diversity and inclusion. Her warmth and deep sensitivity to children with special needs inform the songs on Frogs and Birds, which she created for all children, but especially for those who are neurodiverse, as well as for their families and teachers who embrace inclusion in the classroom.
Emanating encouragement, understanding, and authentic respect for children of all abilities, the 14 tunes on Frogs and Birds shine with gentle sincerity, as Lindsay and Raffi’s voices weave a texture that flows effortlessly from melody to harmony throughout.
Building on the success of 2020’s NAPPA Award-winning I Am Kind, Frogs and Birds is filled with more positive, hopeful, original songs, including two – “I See You” and “Where There Is Love” – that were written specifically for this album by Raffi, along with such enduring, classic favorites as “You Are My Sunshine,” “If I Knew You Were Coming” and “Happy Trails.”
“I’m delighted to be joined by Raffi on this beloved, classic song that so many kids and families know and love,” says Lindsay Munroe. “This song is dear to my heart as I used to sing it to my kids all the time when they were little. I hope it brings joy to you and your sunshine.”
