PB&J | The lemon juice song

Do you know the lemon juice song?

This first PB&J* recording was inspired by Ben's little niece Dylan (pictured), who was so happy her mom bought her lemon juice that she started singing about it. It got Ben thinking ... When and why do some of us lose that kind of pure joy as adults?

*PB&J is an extended conversation, generally about education and parenting, between the musician Ben Messelbeck and the educator Jesse McCarthy.
