"Dragonfly Races": Internationally known folk singer-songwriter Ellis Paul makes a welcome foray into children's music with his first family album, "Dragonfly Races" (Black Wolf Records, $15; www.ellispaul.com).

Paul brings acoustic soul and a light touch to road trips, human ingenuity and heart ("Because It's There"), unity ("The Million Chameleon March"), racing dragonflies, pinwheels and a fairy-tale exposé about the true difference between heroes and monsters ("Abiola"). ^
