Halloween is only a few weeks away and I had the opportunity to review a fun CD called “Thirteen for Halloween” by M Ryan Taylor.  There were spooky and fun songs for kids for the Halloween season!  I also received a songbook with the words and music to the songs.  I can’t wait to see what M Ryan Taylor comes out with for Christmas.
