"Big Stories For Little Ones: Rain For Roots"

I've heard quite a few albums of Christian music for kids. I don't mention many of them here not for philosophical reasons (last fall's religious record roundup notwithstanding), but because they're often pretty uncompelling musically.

This four-song sampler from the new quartet Rain for Roots suggests strongly that their forthcoming (May 15th) debut album Big Stories for Little Ones (based on the poems of Sally Lloyd-Jones) will be in the minority of musically worthy records. Coal Train Railroad's Katy Bowser is part of the band, so there's a little bit of kids music background already, but singers Sandra McCracken, Ellie Holcomb, and Flo Paris sound like they're ready to jump in. I don't think Ricky Gervais or Richard Dawkins will be downloading this, but I think Christians who dig this website will dig this. - Stefan Shepherd


Big Stories for Little Ones - May 15, 2012



Rain for Roots is Ellie Holcomb, Flo Oakes, Katy Bowser, and Sandra McCracken. These East Nashville based singer-songwriters bring their voice and vision together to tell the gospel story by way of Bible songs.

Their debut album, "Big Stories For Little Ones" is 10 songs based on a wooly little book for the youngest child called, Baby's Hug-A-Bible. These poems were written by Sally Lloyd-Jones, author of The Jesus Storybook Bible and were tailor made for the youngest child. Each song tells about a different Bible character (Noah, Moses, Daniel, etc) and points back to God as the true hero of every story.
