Every living being, from honey bees to humans, needs a safe place to call home. Now that people around the globe are forced to “shelter in place,” the need for a safe and secure home is greater than ever.
Animals, too, need a safe and secure place to live. Sadly, many species are threatened by human activity — pollution and carbon fuel-enhanced climate change.
These issues for humans and other creatures inspired award-winning children’s recording artist Dana Cohenour to think about how to express them so that little people could understand. With the immigration and refugee crises rocking the world last year, she wrote, “Everybody needs that one place… everybody needs a safe space… everybody needs somewhere to be with their family. A place to call home.”
Children love animals, and Dana’s new songs on A Place To Call Home explore the different places animals make their homes… in the sky and sea, in wetlands, hidden underground tunnels and more. She chose to shine a light on some animals who are threatened and incorporated factual information into the lyrics.
For the song “Honey Bee Bee Bop,” Dana researched the amazing habits of these planet heroes, who are threatened not only by climate change but also by the invasion of murder hornets this year. Catch the music video by clicking the image below:
“My hope is that these songs will help children to develop a love and appreciation for the animals and their habitats and be inspired to make a difference for every living creature on this precious planet we all call home.” says Dana.
