As a pre-k, kindergarten teacher since 1986, I have used Hap Palmer's music extensively, and "Learning Basic Skills Through Music Vol. 1" has been one of my student's all-time favorites. Their favorite from this collection of original songs, year after year, is "Marching Around the Alphabet". Even though LBSTM Vol. 1 was relaeased in 1969, the recordings are still as fresh and usable as they were 30 years ago, with attention catching tunes and relevant skill building tools for early learners. (Hap REALLY has staying power!) The songs are ready to go from the first time they are used, with little or no prep time (tip: use alphabet cards with Marching Around the Alphabet), and need minimal or no parent/teacher direction. If you are new to Hap Palmer, start here and branch out! He has music geared to every learning need, including abc's, colors, opposites, feelings, health and safety, vocabulary building, shapes, numbers, emergent letter sound recognition, spatial concepts (I could go on and on), with the added attraction of being great music! Good choices would be: "Easy Does It", with the mega-hit "Tap Your Sticks"; Getting to Know Myself, featuring "Sammy"; "Ideas, Thoughts and Feelings", with the great "Letter Sounds" songs; LBSTM Vol. 2, which includes my fav, "Parade of Colors"; "Sally the Swinging Snake, (do the "Wiggy Wiggy Wiggles" with YOUR little one; you'll feel like your four and love it!); "Walter the Walzing Worm", (dance with Walter, he's not slimey!); and Witches' Brew", which includes the ALL TIME NUMBER ONE HIT with the kids, "Scamper". All I can say is, Hap Palmer's music is the standard by which all children's music, educational or otherwise, should be judged.

I love Hap Palmer, I love Hap Palmer, I love Hap Palmer.

I am sooooooooo excited to find all this great music that I listened to 20 years ago (my mom was a kindergarten teacher), now for "my" kids - my preschool students. The other reviwer took the words out of my mouth: I learned to see the world in colors because of Hap Palmer. This music is classic, and will go on forever and ever in classrooms everywhere. If I could afford it, I'd buy it all, but since I have to pick and choose, this one is definitely at the top of my list. If you buy this CD, you won't regret it!!!!

Learning Basic Skills Through Music Vol. 1 is an excellent tool to use in learning about the preschoolers world. I work with children ages 18 months through kindergarten and its a very popular CD with every age. Children learn numbers, colors, the alphabet, body awareness and lots more while having a lot of fun through the use of music and movement! Hap Palmer created a wonderful tool for learning when he releases Learning Basic Skills Through Music Vol.1!

My daughter loves this CD just like I did. It's truly my first memory and I have seen the world in "colors" because of Hap Palmer.

While working in a preschool I found this record, and decided to try it out. I was delighted to hear songs that I remembered from when I was a child. The children loved it to. This one is timeless, but I may upgrade from the record to the CD. I found "What is Your Name" a great song for circle time, not only does it help shy children, but it teaches rhuthem and timing too. A must for every preschool.

Good CD for the young to sing and do the actions. I used this often in early kindergarten classes.

I was thrilled to find this music!!! my children listened to it in the 70's while we were living in Sunnyvale, CA. They are now in their 30's and they still remember the songs. Now I will be playing it for my grandchildren.I hope Madalyn, Zachary, Reid and Neyssa will be playing it for their children. Thank you Hap Palmer for making such beautiful memories for my family.

I used this with my own children,and when I was a school teacher, and now I'm buying it for grandchildren. The songs are lively, cheerful, and easy to follow. They create a happy learning atmosphere, and the kids have a lot of fun with it,too.It's also wonderful in the car. I consider it a classic, and a wonderful addition to the development of any child.

Hap Palmers music inspired me when I was little so much that it was the first music I bought for my little girl. She is only one and already enjoys listening to every minute of it. We are so pleased with our selection and want to express that to everyone reading this. thank you

I started teaching in1972. There were no such things a CDs back then. This record was a 331/3 speed vinyl record. I used it with my second graders. They always looked forward to the activity songs during our morning break. It makes them think as we'll as move. It is an awesome learning tool for early learners.you do not need to be a teacher to use this album(CD) with little ones. Just learn the words and act out the rest. It teaches them to recognize colors and numbers. It is excellent. I am getting a copy after 39 years of teaching. I am using it with my grandchildren. Gold does not lose its value. This CD is wonderful. It keeps the first and second graders engaged. Buy it before it is taken out of production!!
