Planting Veggies, an original by Aiden


Planting Veggies

Lyrics and Melody by 7-year-old singer-songwriter Aiden Adams.

In this original song by Aiden, he challenges us to work together to fight hunger and food insecurity. There are many barriers to food, and with such a high prevalence of food insecurity and hunger from our rural regions to our inner cities, there is tremendous opportunity for us to make a difference!


I Love You Earth

Lyrics and Melody by 6-year-old singer-songwriter Aiden Adams.

There Are No Porcupines

in Washington DC!

Join 6-year-old Aiden in this adventure searching for porcupines in Washington, DC. Following Aiden's hit book, "There Are No Sheep in New York City," his intellectual debate about whether or not there are sheep in New York City continues. Porcupines are our cute furry friends with thousands of sharp pointy quills. Washington DC is our nation's capital, where the laws of our country are made. As much as you may want to cuddle with a cute porcupine or enjoy some time playing with a lovable porcupine, having a pet porcupine is illegal in Washington DC. Aiden asks whether or not there are porcupines on the streets of DC. While searching for porcupines, Aiden takes us on a tour of Washington DC, highlighting popular tourist destinations as well as off-the-beaten-path must-see destinations. You'll love this magical adventure!

Good Morning Washington


I Think About You

by Aiden Adams

Maybe you’re cold.

Maybe you’re old.

Maybe you’ve sold

The good words you were told.

Maybe you were controlled,

Like the robot that kissed the toad.

I wish for hearts to download.

You are the one I want to hold!

Love is worth more than gold.
