Happily, Gwynne has shared her lovely vocal talents with us for our "Shabbat a Lot" song, which is featured in our picture book A Gefilte Fishy Tale. You can hear the song here. And for our upcoming picture book (fall 2017), No Naptime for Janie: A Hanukkah Tale, Gwynne sings "Little Top, Stop Spinning: A Hanukkah Lullaby" and "Spinning Tops and Gelt Galore." You'll be able to hear these songs soon!
