Some kinds words:
“Elena Moon Park has found a way to incorporate Asian elements with American elements in grandly metaphoric sort of way that says something powerful and positive about the potential of cross-cultural exchange, and on that note, about the immigrant experience. But also? It’s just fun to listen to, and that’s enough in and of itself.” – About.com
Hands down, it is the best all-ages album I’ve ever come across.” – New York Family Magazine
“Rabbit Days and Dumplings is a timeless classic and one that fully supports Park’s strong belief that music has the ability to transcend borders, ages, languages, and backgrounds.” – Kids Can Groove
“Elena Moon Park has put together a joyful and eclectic collection of traditional folk and children’s songs, reinterpreted and reinvented in a way that preserves their beauty, but also makes them incredibly appealing to a wide family audience… this CD proves that great music touches us all, no matter what our background or mother tongue.” – Cool Mom Picks
“Rabbit Days and Dumplings is not only a great introduction to the music of East Asia, it is great music, period. Interesting instrumentation, unusual but compelling rhythms and playful lyrics make this album shine, from start to finish.” – Apartment Therapy
“Wow! Elena Moon Park embraces both her family tree and musical roots in her latest CD ‘Rabbit Days And Dumplings’. Well done!”- Robert Drake, Producer Kids Corner, WXPN-FM, Philadelphia
