“My kids flipped for Lisa's silly songs. They love the songs and totally connect to the words. My 4 year old is addicted to “I'm a Little Coconut”.” -Tori Spelling
 
“Lisa Loeb has written the silliest book ever. But I'm deadly serious when I say: You will love it.”
-AJ Jacobs

My two year old son and I absolutely love this book and CD! Lisa's music is so fun and creative, it really is completely different from most of the music out there for kids. Kids imaginations should be challenged and delighted, which is exactly what Lisa does here. The illustrations in the book are a huge step up from most children's books as well- total eye candy and very modern! My son loves to sit and scan the page pointing out all of the cool little details to me. I know, I know, I'm totally gushing....but I really think this book is uber cool.

It's impossible not to smile while reading singer/songwriter/actress Lisa Loeb's Silly Sing-Along and listening to the accompanying CD, featuring 10 songs. Though not brand new, the book is clever, original and just as silly as its title promises. Between the ultra thick hard covers you'll find 24 pages of lyrics and cute illustrations by Ryan O'Rourke. Some of the tunes are familiar while others are original. Loeb performs all of the songs on the CD, many of which she wrote, and her voice is clear and animated. Background vocals are performed by children, encouraging readers to sing along at home. You'll love the way Loeb gives a background of each song in the book, sharing her childhood memories and silly tidbits. Kids will love reading while listening to the CD, and I promise parents will find the music soothing, rather than annoying, like some children's music. What a fun book to bring along on a long family car ride or just to listen to at home or even at a birthday party. Oh, and you'll get a real kick out of the lyrics for "The Disappointing Pancake."

I have a 7 year old and a 2 year old and they both LOVE this cd. The songs are so catchy and fun. I have to admit, it's one of MY favorite kid cds. The book is adorable too with whimsical illustrations and has the words for the songs. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Love it!

Some parents may remember Lisa Loeb from her hit song "Stay." Others may remember a reality show she did with Dweezil Zappa. Either way, it's great to see one of my favorite singers back with a delightful book and CD set that gets the toes tapping and is certain to please children and their parents.

Lisa Loeb's Silly Sing-Along: The Disappointing Pancake & Other Zany Songs is addicting. There are 10 songs in all and the book offers full lyrics so that children follow along with ease. Some songs even include dance/movement instructions that gets families up and moving around. Songs include:

Opposite Day
I'm a Little Coconut
The Disappointing Pancake
Fried Ham
Everybody Dreams
Chewing Gum
A Codi By Doze
The Banjo Song
Sipping Cider
Found a Peanut

Each song is catchy and really enjoyable, though my teenagers gave me a weird look as I listened and sang along with Lisa. Pay attention to some of the banjo playing because actor Steve Martin performs on one track.

Many pages include little stories from Lisa about the song and illustrations by Ryan O'Rourke present a fun, colorful look into the central theme of each song. All in all, there is a lot to love about Lisa Loeb's Silly Sing-Along. I highly recommend it.

The pictures are great. The songs are very silly. My son does not understand the words yet, but I think a four year old (and up!) would think that the words are very funny. I like the Cider Song, and the one that gets stuck in my head the most is Fried Ham.

This book/cd is okay. My grand daughter's favorite is Frog Trouble by Sandra Boynton. The main difference between the two is that Boynton's songs are song by many different artists while Loeb's are all sung by her. I guess if you are a Lisa Loeb fan you will enjoy it. The artwork in the book is nice.

I'm a fan of Lisa Loeb first and foremost. I LOVE how now my daughter can get to know her too! She is almost 5 and loves to sing...every second of every day. So this is perfect for her! All of the songs are cute and she loves looking at each illustration while the song is singing. I love this book!!

This sing-along book is excellent! My kids will listen to it over and over again while following with the words in the book. This single-handedly taught my 4-year-old how to read the words "Fried Ham, Cheese and Bologna"
