With “I am 4, 5, 6,” she extends and amplifies her original message with the help of several instrumentalists, fellow “Kindie” artists, and an Indiegogo campaign. She partners again with Grammy award winning engineer Luke Rohwer to create all acoustic, vivid musical illustrations of the stories each song presents.

One and Two is Three, an award winning children's album by Margot Bevington, now has a corresponding coloring book- The One and Two is Three Musical Coloring Book for Parents and Their Very Young Children.

The lyrics of each song, as well as an inspirational quote, accompany the hand drawn images. There are also places for children to practice writing their names, and drawing pictures of themselves with their adult caregiver.

The theme of spending time with young ones permeates Ms. Bevington's music as well. The coloring book, meant to help introduce children to coloring (recommended for ages 3-5), and the songs celebrate sharing a sense of wonder about the world as parents rediscover the world anew with their children.
