The Children's Fairyland storybook theme park at Lake Merritt has released its first CD, with songs such as "Hay! Ho! The Puppet Show!" and "Humpty's Fairyland Rap 'n Rhyme." "Through the Shoe" contains 14 tracks, including the "Fairyland Theme Song" and "Fairyland Danceroni." There's a song about the park's newest attraction, Old West Junction, and a classic Latin American children's song, "El Burrito Enfermo" -- the sick little donkey. Singers Lori Moite and RJ Johnson of Cotton Candy Express Music coached children who helped back them up on the songs. The musicians will perform a concert at Children's Fairyland during the annual Jack O' Lantern Jamboree weekend Oct. 30 to celebrate the new CD's release. Proceeds from sales will benefit the nonprofit group. Production of the CD was made possible in part by a grant from the Lake Merritt Breakfast Club.
