Jim Gill is a musician and author with singular credentials among children’s artists. Jim spent twenty years directing programs in music play for families and children with special needs in the Chicago area. His particular writing style—combining word play and movement opportunities into songs—was developed through this work. Jim completed his graduate studies in child development at the Erikson Institute of Chicago with a special emphasis on the study of play. His work experience and studies have led Jim to create each of his recordings and books as an opportunity for playful interactions between a child and a caring adult. Jim has released seven award-winning CDs of music play for young children that are favorites in family rooms, classrooms, and playrooms. Jim is also the author of two children’s books. Over the years he has received five awards from the American Library Association for his releases.
