Dance to the reggae rhythm with Aaron Nigel Smith!
Don’t you want to just hang out with this guy?! We do. This CD starts out with such an enthusiastic invitation for children to Dance to the Reggae Rhythm and you can’t help but to get up and do just that. He also includes his own soft and sweet version of If I Had a Hammer with reggae icon, Ernie Smith. But our absolute favorite is Banana Bread! We make banana bread together all the time. We happen to have three very ripe bananas right now and can’t wait to play that tune and bake that banana bread. Aaron, we’ll save a piece for you!
