"Seven Ate Nine", is Rick Charette's 12th album of original kids music and contains 16 original new tracks. The album, 4 years in the making, grew from the inspiration Charette received from his performance tours and workshops with young children throughout the US and the arrival of his new granddaughters. Several of the song ideas came from songwriting workshops as children would share ideas from a point of view that only a child could imagine.
