This is my first site specifically for children. All of the graphics were drawn by me completely from scratch. Despite a lack of content for the site I tried to make it as fun as possible. For instance, see what happens when you click on the X to download the free songs.
Because this site is part of the larger David Rovics site I was able to connect it into his current content management system. I upgraded it slightly to allow him to upload the .mp3 files himself for download.
Apart from the blue and white representing water and air, the rounded top section of the design was meant to reinforce the water theme and logo and the lower white section which disappears into the white background reinforces the air theme.

The giant tepee shaped building painted with native american designs set the tone for this site. The restaurant sits along side a passenger railroad and the train does indeed stop to eat there.

The site also contains images of every native american tribal flag in their massive collection, their menu, a web e-mail form, and 3D tour of the inside of the tepee.
