Review

Starred Review. The creative team that so cleverly presented musical theater for kids with the star-studded recording Philadelphia Chickens is back this time with a mostly rock-and-roll romp, and another stellar cast of musical talent. Blues Traveler, replete with John Popper wailing on his harmonica, rides the rails for the driving title track about, yes, dogs on board a midnight train where "Kittycats are not allowed...their ears in the breeze...Their cold, wet, happy,/ quiv'ring noises outside." Mark Lanegan takes the octave down a few notches with his deep and bluesy rendition of "Sneakers" about the favorite footwear that's both comfy and quiet. The 1960s British invasion star Billy J. Kramer sounds every bit up-to-date as he blasts off on the spaceship song "Cow Planet." And who would've thunk that actress Kate Winslet and novelty performer "Weird Al" Yankovic could pull off a sunny and theatrically emotive duet on "I Need a Nap?" There are no clunkers here; other highlights include numbers by Alison Krauss, Spin Doctors, Hootie and the Blowfish and Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme (hilariously singing the "Boring Song"). A knockout listen, in all the best ways, for the whole family. Like the songs, Boynton's book showcases her signature zippy sense of humor and loveable critters. It also includes complete lyrics and music for each number and brief profiles of all the performers. --Publishers' Weekly

I have a degree in music education, and I love working with young children. However, I HATE listening to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, If You're Happy and You Know It, The Ants Go Marching, and all the other "classic" songs for children. Ugh. All of Sandra Boynton's CDs are wonderful, but this is my favorite. The songs are clever, catchy, and fun to dance to. This CD is great for introducing your kids or students to rock and roll. The kids I've worked with have loved it, and I even listen to it on my own! Unlike "The Hokey Pokey," these songs never get old.

My 6 yr old and 4 yr old girls LOVE this CD/book combination. The music is fun, the book is colorful. As an adult, this is the best kids music I've heard. Often times I find myself singing the songs without the kids around.

I bought this as a gift for our neighbor kids but once I listened to it I had to keep it!

The lyrics are excellent ranging from hilarious to sweet and the music is fabulous. Every time I play it I'm up dancing around the house (I'm 54, not much gets me moving like this does!)

"Cow Planet" reminds of Moody Blues "Days of Future Past". Great memories of my teenage years.

Have to buy additional copies now for the neighbor kids. I hope they will enjoy it as much as I have.

Delightful songs and so much fun to listen to. Can't help smiling while driving along listening to this CD. Some of the lyrics just crack me up. Al Yankovic and Kate Winslet's duet, Alison Kraus, and Mark Lanegan just make the songs that much more special.

My kids and I LOVE this CD. This is more of a rock cd compared to the other Boynton CDs (Phila Chickens, Rhino Tap) that are kids music. Blue Moo is more on this level - but 50's & 60's style music. My favorite song is DOg Train - but I guess that is because I love the Blues Travelers. There are other great artists on there - Hootie & the Blowfish, the Spin Doctors, the Bacon Brothers, etc. This is a CD that I can listen to and enjoy. Some of the music that my kids listen to is very child-like which is fine - but sometimes I just can't listen to that kind of music in the car. I need something that won't drive me crazy when I am singing it in my head for the rest of the day.

One of my favorite parts of the day is the car ride to and from school when we get to rock out to the CD. And yes, I really mean it, we rock out; tapping, hand shaking, head boppin'. Somehow the songs appeal to both my 3yr old and me as well. For the adults who are tired of baby songs and want to introduce kids to a more complex melodies and rhythms this is the one. The lyrics are also cute and make me chuckle.
