Editorial Reviews

Review

There are so many fabulous moments on Gill's new recording that it is impossible to mention them all, but here are just a few. There are wonderful sing-along songs such as Johnny Cuckoo and The Onomatopoeia Pizzeria, play-alongs like It Takes Some Friends, Bananas and I Changed My Mind, and some songs that no one could even imagine (except for Jim Gill) such as Truck Stop and Foot Notes. --Chicago Parent, November 2011

....The best I can do is to try to convince you that your children need a healthy, age-appropriate musical diet. They need creative, thought-provoking, movement-inspiring, engaging music play experiences. And no one, I said no one, does it better than Jim Gill. --WXRT.radio.com

Love, love, love.

This is not only our favorite Jim Gill album, it's our family's favorite musical album of any kind. It's on loop (sometimes a little too much) in our car, but it always brings a smile to our children's faces.

PROS:
1. These are fun, silly, over-the-top songs written for kids -- almost every track is a winner.
2. Simple lyrics that kids can learn and easily understand ("you got to grow bananas, grow, grow, bananas... and then you pick bananas, pick, pick, bananas..."
3. Many of the tunes are catchy (and/or borrowed from other familiar songs/themes)
4. My two-year-old loves it, my four-year-old loves it... and to throw it in, my husband thinks the lyrics are hilarious as well, it's a complete crowd pleaser!

CONS:
1. You'll probably get tired of of the songs on the 100th time through, but the kids will still love it, and so... yeah...

Ok, so I may have a little Jim Gill crush - I love his music and this CD doesn't disappoint. I have to say I wasn't as thrilled with this CD at first, but after listening and singing with my preschoolers a few times, we soon fell in love with the Truck Stop and Onomatopoeia Pizzaria Song. So much movement and rhyme in all his work. LOVE IT!

You can't go wrong with ANY of the Jim Gill CD's. He knows early childhood spot on and makes fun, fabulous songs for moving and for language learning. I worked for eight years in a variety of preschools as a speech language pathologist and each room had a collection of Jim Gill music and a room full of young fans requesting his songs. His latest, Music Play for Folks of all Stripes, adds to the fun with a DVD demonstrating ways to play to the music with your child. I don't know how, but he keeps coming up with NEW ideas for silly songs. If you ever have a chance to catch Mr. Gill perform in your community/public library...don't miss it! The whole family will enjoy.

This is Jim Gill's best cd yet. I am a music educator and I own and use them all. This cd is especially good for movement, following directions, and using the imagination. My special education students will love it too.

Jim Gill has done it again -- created more fantastic music for families, teachers and librarians, anyone who works and plays with children! Jim's music encourages children to sing, dance, and move creatively. It exercises their imaginations as well as their bodies! I am crazy about the word play on this album -- some favorites, which I have used with groups of delighted children, are Two for Tea, Truck Stop and I Changed my Mind. The kids have so much fun with these inventive songs, and the parents go home inspired to use this playful music at home to get their kids moving and thinking in creative ways. Thank you, Jim Gill -- like the rainbow zebra on the CD cover, you and your music are one of a kind!

Our family has known and been fans of Jim Gill's music play for many years....
Our son is 23 and autistic and he & his sister participated in Jim's play groups for years when they were young...some of the most fun, memorable and rewarding times. Matt continues to be entertained and delighted by Jim's music--sometimes it takes a few playings to make the new music a part of his repertoire...but, we always get attached to several favorites on each new CD.
Learning new songs provides new connections for me as a parent of a "verbally challenged" son...the fun songs increase Matt's vocabulary and allow our rides into the city to be fun filled! Music Play for Folks of all Stripes is just as it says-a variety of fun songs for all kinds...Jim's incredible mastery of language-word play and rhyme and bringing traditional songs and expressions back to life never ceases to amaze me!

I have been familiar with Jim Gill's music for years now. As an early childhood educator I could not resist the quirkiness of the songs as well as the word play. The children immediately lit up when they heard his music. Now a mother of two children 26months and 10months, Jim Gill is playing DAILY! At 18months my son was able to manipulate the iPod in order to play the music. Each meal he requests music if try to play something else he says, "no mom, my music." I would highly recommend this music. Our family truly loves to dance and listen to all of the different beats.

Jim Gill did not disappoint with his newest CD. I'm not sure if my husband and me or my kids were more excited to hear new Jim Gill music! We listened to it over and over again as soon as we purchased it. Our favorite song is "Onomatopoeia Pizzeria"! We will definitely be buying any new CDs that Jim Gill creates.
