Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-True to its title, this brief book and CD introduce 10 interactive songs, some Loeb originals, all designed for maximum movement and rhythm. Popular folk or camp tunes include "Miss Mary Mack," "Peanut Butter and Jelly," "Do Your Ears Hang Low?" and "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes." Each spread provides the lyrics and cartoon images, giving instruction for movement. Occasional boxed instructions give additional information about the song or performance tips. While adults can use the book as a source for the lyrics, the lack of contrast between background and fonts, and cluttered images or decoration create pages that are challenging to read. The CD is essential to the book, as no musical notation is included, and it is definitely the highlight of this collaboration. With vocals by Lisa Loeb, Dan Petty, Michelle Lewis, and the Campers, joining acoustic guitar, bass, drums, piano or keyboard, the recording presents a varied collection of songs to encourage participation from a rhythmic stomp ("Everybody Wake Up") to a lyric sun salutation with yoga movement ("Hello Today"). A general purchase with a sprinkling of humor that's guaranteed to leave a smile on the face of listeners.-Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TXα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

According to an opening author’s note from Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Loeb, this book is meant “to make you get up out of your chair!” And this collection of 10 songs (with an accompanying CD) will likely cause little ones to do just that. The energy is practically radiating off the pages, with retro-cool illustrations that fill the page, a fun design, and a mixture of classic songs and Loeb’s own creations, some of which were written with the help of friends. There’s old-favorite “Miss Mary Mack,” which includes the clapping pattern many adults will remember from their own childhoods; “Do Your Ears Hang Low?,” also complete with hand movements; and “Hello, Today,” a sun salutation of sorts, with a few very basic yoga poses included. Each song has a brief introduction in which Loeb offers up simple instructions for bopping along to the song (“A tennis racket makes a great guitar!”) Many kids may be too young to follow along with the book, but if adults master the moves (easy to do) and pop in the CD, you’ll have a dance party in no time. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ann Kelley

My toddler absolutely loves this cd. I'm pretty sure he knows all the songs by heart and I get requests to play specific songs every time we are in the car. I find myself singing along too - very catchy tunes!

We just love Lisa Loeb. This CD won't disappoint. We own the Disappointing Pancake CD/book, and we recommend that one as well.

My Daughter loves her other book and CD, Silly songs. My Daughter couldn't wait to hear this one. She loves this one just as much as the other one. It's a great CD to get you and your family moving!

As a long time fan of Lisa Loeb (still love to sing "stay" at karaoke!), I decided to purchase this book as a gift for my little niece. As soon as I popped the CD into the stereo, she was movin' and shakin instantly! The songs are so much fun, both the classic ones and the new ones. As a longtime yogi I was pleased that "Hello Today" featured relaxing sun salutations. The illustrations are super cute too. Great gift for little kids or new parents.

My personal favorite is the Monster Stomp although my niece is so fond of the first track "Air Band", she rarely let's me listen to it. She, 3 years old, loves to scrunch up her face and pretend to play the air guitar and air drums, as sounded off by the lyrics. It's incredibly sweet and funny. Lisa Loeb has a wonderful mix of uplifting songs to dance around to as well as mellow ones but all have fingerplay/choreography for young ones to move with, as well. Our second-favorite is what we call 'The Yoga Song', actually titled "Hello Today".
