Janice Kapp Perry got me through some of my toughest teenage years! Her songs are close to my heart because of that. There are some songs included in this book that I haven't thought of for years, yet as soon as I played them again, memories came flooding back to me and they were stuck in my head for days. I love the primary songs as well, as they are some of my favorites, and I'm currently the Primary chorister in my ward. One of my favorite things about this collection, is the illustrations that accompany each song. I loved looking at each of them in detail.
I was surprised to discover a whole section of new hymns that are about the Book of Mormon! These are songs that I'm looking forward to getting to know and learn better. I had a lot of fun trying to play through the songs and to think about these new lyrics. This is a great collection of music for any LDS family.
