Though I've been listening to kids music for about 15 years now, I can still be surprised by what tickles my fancy. What was it then about this video for "Sheep Don't Wear Shoes," a simple little ditty from Marsha Goodman-Wood, off her album Gravity Vacation? The gentle (though not over-the-top) message of independence? The big-eyed sheep illustrated by Danielle Dekoker and assembled into video form by fellow kids musician Patricia Shih? The fact that it stars sheep (I do like my animated sheep)?
I'm still not entirely sure, but I liked it enough to be happy to world-premiere the video this morning.
(Plus, my last name is "Shepherd.")
