“This thematic children’s CD is filled with a wonderful message of hopes and dreams and captures the emotions of both parents and kids alike. It features artists such as Lyrics Born and Cheech Marin and Mos Def. Pachas Pajamas is a hip hop musical with an inspirational, almost spiritual, message to kids telling them to follow their dreams. The narrative is fun to follow and the music is full of dance, hip hop and rap. It preaches love, peace, dreams and Momma Earth. We think Michael Franti would be the perfect addition to this uplifting collection of songs! A big thumbs up!”
“I was very honored to review this fantastic children’s CD. Pacha’s PJ’s includes so many wonderful themes for children and adults. Environmental, economic, and social equality, dreams and transformation, family, species awareness, corporate pollution and control, and many, many more. Pacha meanders through entertaining, interesting, educational, and emotional interactions as she holds the Pacha Jamma nature festival.”
“The music is just excellent. There are so many talented artists young and old, new and established participating. They must have been so moved that a children’s CD could be so indepth and creative. Their work really takes the reader through the experience of being there with all the animals and how elaborate they are described and how realistic they come to life. It is a great start to really help kids become aware of very important issues in our times and to get them off the couch and out into nature. I will highly recommend this CD to many of the parents and teachers I know to spread the word of Pacha’s Pajamas.”

06.2013: Parent’s Choice Recommended Award This original pop musical is highly engaging and well made…
There’s a great deal to like here. Not least the expertly crafted, tuneful messages of unity and the interconnectedness of all life performed by a notably appealing diverse, all-ages cast of actors and musicians (including hip-hop artists Mos Def and Talib Kweli, and actor Cheech Marin)…
Among the highlights: the pop-rap title song (“Come on and raise your paws for Mama Earth…Come on and let’s unite for Mama Earth…”), “Horses Don’t See Colors (Like People Do),” a moving plea for racial harmony delivered with an infectious country flair, and the sweetly sung anthem, “I Found My Music.”
