"Googolplex & Other Numbers" is here!
I now have a new kid's CD available entitled "Googolplex & Other Numbers." It's a synthesis of the best of my first two children's CDs along with five new songs never before recorded. Kind of classic Jack for a new generation. I'm retiring "Tooth Fairy & Other Kidbits" and "Yawngs & Snoriezzz" which will be available only on special order. The new songs include "The Best Birthday Present," "The Walleye Hole," "Hop Along Song," "Buttercup Polly" and "Little Free Library." I'm very happy with the lineup and trust that you'll like it, too.

Singin' In Our Own Backyard Wins Parent's Choice Award
Jack's album Singin' In Our Own Backyard has just received a 2008 Parents' Choice Classic award, reserved for previous gold award winners whose vibrance and energy have stood the test of time. From the review:
[Jack's] heart-songs and wordplay...and irresistible acoustic rhythms are still country breeze fresh. And Pearson, a master strummer and fiddler, wrapped his songs in a message that resonates with even more relevance today: it's healthy and spirit-lifting for kids and adults, too, to take a break from the relentless noise and rush of the everyday just to think, make music, play and imagine.
- Lynne Heffley, Parents' Choice Foundation
