"Whenever I construct anything for children, I shut off the side of my brain that writes my stories--the adult muse.
I am a firm advocate of protecting the innocence of youth. I was able to grow up with that precious protection, and I believe all children should have the same blessed opportunity." -- J. Walker
The following two 50-states videos together have received more than 266,000 authentic , unsolicited YouTube views! Children all over the United States, and from countries such as New Zealand, communicate with TheJanWalker about this pair of videos.
Janet Walker not only writes fictional prose. As the product of a music-loving family, she also sings and creates melodies and lyrics. However, while her fiction is for adults only, most of her songs are for children.
...But not the first song that follows. Its sophisticated harmony, a tune borrowed from another songwriter, might appeal more to adults, but we use it here to demonstrate Ms. Walker's ability to sing.
The following is Janet's Last Singing Video
(Before she lost her singing voice for a year!)
* PARENTS, NOTE: Rather than visit the Breland website, children can access these songs on the YouTube channel called TheJanWalker.
"In all of these videos*, my voice is the only one you hear--even when you hear two or three voices. I used my phone and laptop recorders to make the double and triple recordings--and in the "Boyfriend, Best Friend" video, in part two of the video, I even try to imitate musical instruments." -- JW
