It is always fun to be involved as kids learn their ABCs and 123s.  But, add in some counting and alphabets from other languages, and the fun multiplies.  Ella Jenkins is an engaging musician that loves to share both familiar and new music with children.  And she does it with such classic flair.  In her new album, “123s and ABCs”, Ella presents 16 songs full of learning opportunities and fun!
