By Tim Janson HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 30, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Teacher Jane Schoenberg and her husband Steven, a Musician, have teamed up to create a wonderful book/CD combo explaining to kids all about how the body works. The songs deal with body functions like movement and muscles, the brain, breathing, and even passing gas. They not only wrote the book but they also perform all of the songs. The music was quite fun and my three year old enjoys many of the songs. The lyrics are catchy, here is an example:

Your brain keeps sending messages right out,

Tells you to be quiet, and tells you when to shout,

Tells you when you're happy, tells you when you're sad,

Tells you when you're feeling hot or cold or hurting bad.

Simple but rhythmic which kids will enjoy. Nicely illustrated as well. Great for pre-schoolers up to grade 1 at least.

This book is great. The illustrations are wonderful, and the CD is the first children's CD that we can listen to again and again.

We have given many copies as gifts. Children and parents have been pleased with both the book and the music.

As a longtime babysitter, and a childhood Raffi junkie, my standards for 'children's music' have always been high. Finally, after 10 years of suffering the popularity of 'Barney' , we have an antidote! This book/CD has music that kids love and I actually ENJOY. The sophistication of the songs, the intelligence of the lyrics, and the up-beat pace all keep me interested. The kids just start to move, almost unwittingly, which allows them get their energy out in a positive way. Definitely a long car ride keeper.

I ordered this book/cd for my daughter's upcoming 4th birthday. I haven't been able to resist listening to the songs. I'm listening to them often on my own when she is at preschool because I really enjoy it.

The songs are educational and the music is easy listening and enjoyable for adults as well as children. The songs are by Jane and Steven Schoenberg and the fun illustrations in the lyric book are by Cynthia Fish.

The songs included are: "Bones, Bones, Bones", "It's your Muscles", "Keep the Beat", "Teeth are Neat", "Everyone Passes Gas", "Brain Power", "Inhale, Exhale", "Amazing Senses", "Amazing Senses", "Have Fun with your Hair", "Skin's In", "On the Move", and "Celebrate our Bodies".

I love this idea of learning through music and I don't know why there aren't tons of CD's available out there like this. Kids can memorize jiggles from commericals--if they are going to learn stuff about hamburgers from jiggles why can't they learn everything thing else they need to know. Education should be fun and music is the universal language.

My favorite songs are "Bones, Bones, Bones", "Everyone Passes Gas", and "Celebrate our Bodies".

"Everyone Passes Gas" is delightful--it's humorous and tasteful at the same time. I tell you it's such a relief to not have to hold in a toot anymore. When I was a kid they didn't have books like "Everyone Poops" and "The Gas We Pass--The Story of Farts".

You never saw the Brady Bunch kids pass gas. What a wonderful thing that kids today don't have to feel shame about their bodies.

"Celebrate our Bodies" is a beautiful song about the bodies that we have. I love the chorus and the way it's sung--"Let's celebrate our bodies, Be glad for who we are, Because we're very special.

My Bodyworks is amazing. The songs are cool, but the fart song really blew me away! You can learn a lot about your body by singing along and following the words in the book. Even my parents (who don't usually get a kick out of this kind of stuff) loved it.

Finally, there is a book that actually caters to the age when children first start to become more aware of and curious about their bodies! One of my babysitting charges always reached for the book about human anatomy during reading time...and although she enjoyed it for the pictures, I was disappointed by how "clinical" the text was. I can't wait to share this delightful book and CD with her - my only complaint is that "My Bodyworks" wasn't around when I was a kid!
