         Christine Lavin has been a major force in the contemporary music world for two decades with 30 albums to her credit, 20 of them solo. With the release of her picturebook, AMOEBA HOP, fans who have longed for ‘something for their kids’ will not be disappointed. What they will be is delighted by seeing Christine’s imaginative world come alive.

"I wrote the song in the early 1980s, but it was inspired by my first look into a microscope in Mr. Kristoph's 9th grade biology class,” recalls Christine.  “Classmate Betty Ann Murphy brought a bucket of swamp water into the classroom and when I looked at what was going on down there, I was stupefied! That was in 1967, so it took quite a while for the song to morph past the incubation stage (and amazing to me that I remember the details so vividly. But I do!). If I had gotten that peek into one-celled goings-on earlier, maybe today I'd be a scientist and not a songwriter..."
