In 2017, Argosy commissioned Community Music to produce a new CD featuring the two-time GRAMMY(C) Award winning duo Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer. We picked 10 of the best songs from Ballads for the Age of Science. Cathy & Marcy created new arrangements and chose a fine group of musicians. The result is a joyful update of songs many of us remember as earworms that infect listeners with scientific literacy.
"Two-time Grammy-winning folk and children's music duo Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer present Zoom a Little Zoom, featuring ten new interpretations of educational songs from the classic 1961 album "Ballads for the Age of Science". Zoom a Little Zoom is filled with not only catchy music, but also fascinating facts about rockets, constellations, animal habits, gravity, and more. Zoom a Little Zoom is a choice pick for school and public library children's music collections, highly recommended!"
Lynn Baum ( Turtle Peak Consulting ) created the most complete, amazing and fun activity guides for classroom or home learning to go along with each song. You’ll find everything you need for science fun right in your own home or classroom. The guides are included on the CD and as free downloads.
Dick & Linda Bangham ( RipBang Pictures ) added visual zip to the package. They also created this rockin' video for "Zoom a Little Zoom".

Sing along, dance along, try an experiment, and as we did making this, have as much fun as you possibly can!
