Format: Audio CD
I have So Big and this CD by Hap Palmer. In general, I like Hap Palmer's songs because they are catchy and not tied-in to product promotions (like Disney and others). He produces songs enjoyable for all of my children, and I have to admit, I find myself singing along, too.
This CD contains several "self-awareness" types of songs. I have a child on the autistic spectrum, and I found the songs on feelings to be especially useful. The overall message of these songs is to learn about yourself and be satisfied that you are who you are. These are particularly important concepts for an autistic child.
I am such a fan of Hap Palmer, that I suspect I'll eventually own all of his music.

Hap Palmer lends his gentle voice and melodies to a fabulous collection of songs here. They incorporate enough movement to maintain interest, but at intervals that will not cause things to detiorate into bedlam. I've used this collection with a class of 35 3 to 6 year olds at a Montessori school--it was our "morning warm-up." We especially liked "Turn-a-round." This collection enhances listening skills.

I love this cd, and have used it for several years in my classroom of three year olds. The kids love the music, especially Sammy. Shake something is fun too. I also have a 22 year old assistant teacher who loves this cd so much that she says she is going to bring it to a nightclub so she can bust it out on the dance floor to the song Left and Right. Way to go Hap!

My son is autistic and was in the public special education since he was 2 1/2. They used this CD so I wanted to buy it myself. I think it is great, I even found myself getting into it!

I am a children's yoga and movement teacher and I ordered this CD to help add variety to my lessons. The music is fun, the movement activites are varied and do-able for even very young children and the songs are an appropriate length.

Great for rainy-day fun as well. A must for preschool teachers and day care providers!

We were looking forward to using this CD to help teach our kids about their emotions. It seemed to have promise! The first 2 songs are cute, including the "Sammy" song. However, the CD is otherwise extraordinarily repetitive and lacks creativity in both lyrics and tune. My opinion is that, had Mr. Palmer put a bit more effort into his song-writing, the songs could have been catchy. However, as it stands, I find it almost nauseating to listen to the CD in its entirety. Next to Raffi or the Gemini, this CD falls completely flat. I wish I had not purchased it.

Hap Palmer is all the rage! What is life without "Sammy"? This is a very good item to have. The advertisement for this item was spot on. The packaging and delivery were appropriate for the item. The price was extremely reasonable. I will consider doing business with this vendor again!

I am an Early Intervention Teacher for children 18 months - 3 years old with special needs. There are only 1 or 2 songs on this CD that I can use in my classroom. Catchy tunes on the whole CD, but the lyrics are too sophisticated for my kids.
