Philadelphia Chickens: A Too-illogical Zoological Musical Review

Summary:

The animals have gotten into a groove. The aardvarks, cows, dinosaurs, chickens and their friends serenade you with with big band, blues, jazz, jump-rope tunes … and a lullaby or two.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The music is sophisticated enough for grown-up ears, but fun enough to share some silly dances, too.

Content Awareness Factors:

Beware! You may find yourself in the grocery store humming "Cows, we're remarkable cows." The tunes will follow you even when the music stops.


Little Kid Reaction

Instant encores! Our toddler loves dancing along, and now has started reciting some of the songs. After two months it is still AT LEAST a twice-daily request. Now, two years later, it's a 'comfort book' when we've had a tough day.

Parent Reaction

We are as thrilled with the music as she is. And it's a good thing, because the CD goes EVERYWHERE we go. We hope to find more kids music like it.

Type of Book:
This is a CD with a song-book that accompanies it.
Educational Themes:

The great thing about this book is that it reminds all of us that it's okay to be silly.
