It is chocked full of songs – (25 of ‘em!) that entertain, teach, soothe, and excite. There are songs about the swimming, hobos, garbage, socks, sand castles, the Underground Railroad, blueberries, peace, and more.
Whew! It’s a lot of great music packed into one CD!
The companion book, “A Little Sunshine for Teachers” with zillions of ideas about how music can be woven into the fiber of the classroom, how it can promote and extend learning, and how even teachers who don’t feel musically inclined can bring the joy and benefits of music into their classrooms.

What people are saying about “A Little Sunshine”:
“We thoroughly enjoyed the entire CD, and can’t wait to share it with everyone we know – and with people we don’t know. We may just buy a million copies!” -Sandy & Larry Feldman, St. Joseph, Michigan
“I have used your CD over and over and etc…. I have reinforced the
peace we show in our classroom with the Love Grows song…I love it and so do my 25 first graders! We shared it with our parents one afternoon lately and many,many were in tears… Thanks so much for your inspiration… What a wonderful theme to share with first graders!”
-D. S., First Grade Teacher, East Lansing, Michigan
>”Positive, heartfelt, profound, and fun –and full of surprises to boot. It is delightfully eclectic, well sung, well arranged, and will be loved by listeners of every age.” – Carol Johnson, Music With a Message
>”The thing that touches me most about Pamela Chappell’s “A Little More Sunshine” (besides her clear, true voice) is her incorporation of the “All God’s Children Community Choir”, a diverse group of kids (3-14 years old) brought together to sing on many of the tracks. Add Joel Mabus and other fine backing musicians, and the result is an important collection of music that children can embrace and enjoy. Who knows…maybe the angry adults of the world could embrace it too.” – David Roth
>”It’s a beautiful CD. Thanks for asking me to be part of it. I like that some of the songs are downright silly and others are profound. And some are silly and profound all at the same time!” – Joel Mabus
Pamela can customize a performance for your school, club, youth group, camp, or family event. She draws the audience into her performances with stories and sing-alongs, mixing the silly with the profound, delighting the young as well as the young at heart.
After working for six years at a youth camp, Pamela was a classroom teacher for 23 years. All of that time she utilized music to enhance learning and to build community with her students. Her rich repertoire is both educational and fun.
She also teaches workshops for teachers on how to integrate music into a balanced literacy program.
