OverviewTender, subtle, and irresistibly simple songs with lyrics that will delight children's ears, Gilles Vigneault's wandering mind carries us far away into an imaginative world full of poetry. "Jâ€™ai pour toi un lac" and "Les amours, les travaux," two classics he penned many years ago, fit perfectly alongside lullabies and nursery rhymes. The 13 songs are also featured on a DVD as short animated films produced by various filmmakers.
