Pachas Pajamas is a beautiful story about a little girl afraid to talk in front of crowds and who suffers an asthma attack the night before her concert. To calm her, her parents give her a pair of magical pajamas that take her on a grand journey where the characters on her pajamas come to life and they all fight to join all animal species together and unite them. It is an enthralling, and inspiring story put to music with the story in audio book form.
As the characters come to life, Pacha and her new friends organize a huge concert to unite all the animals and fight against the evil Mr. Tick and his minions who want nothing more than to ruin the concert and life as we know it on earth. As the night of the concert nears, to Pacha’s surprise, and with much protest, Pacha is made the host and must talk in front of all who attend and face her great fear of talking in front of a crowd. In the end, justice and courage prevail.
My kids LOVE this two part Audio download. (also come in cd form!) They start dancing the moment it begins, and even in the parts that only speak (they form a great story line!) they sit and listen the whole story through! With all the different characters and musical talent, filled with so many genres and cultures, this cd is not only fun to listen to and a piece of art; but a way to expose our kids to different cultures and musical types. It’s like a 2 for 1!
I highly recommend these cds for anyone with children! They open up new cultures and genres of music, and teach unity, tolerance, and courage. They are fun and easy to listen to and tell a great story that parents and children can learn from alike. It can also be gotten in ebook form, and will soon be in animated book, chapter book, children’s book, and web show/animated tv series! (I can’t wait for that!!)
The Pacha’s Pajamas: A Story Written By Nature Vol. 1 & 2 double album was the first full release of the Pacha’s Pajamas series. After an asthma attack, Pacha’s mother gives her a pair of magical pajamas. That night, the animals and plants on Pacha’s new pajamas come to life. Entering her dream disguised as a little gorilla, she comes upon an unlikely group of creatures, large and small, all feeling sad about the state of the world. They decide to organize the greatest festival on Earth to unite all species. They build a stadium—half land, half water; powered by electric eels. Fox News is reporting but its real foxes. Acts include an insect music band called The Beetles, a black-eyed pea that raps, and a beaver named Just-in-Time. At the end of the show, all eyes are on Pacha. As she finishes her dance, her mask comes off revealing to the audience of plants and animals that she is actually human!
