In these winter months, it's often hard to get kids moving enough to get their recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day. In fact, First Lady Michelle Obama is big on that recommendation as a part of her "Let's Move" program to combat childhood obesity. One way to get kids moving is with a fitting soundtrack, and GET MOVING WITH ELLA JENKINS presents the little ones with a full hour of activity songs perfect for doing just that!
