My family has enjoyed listening to Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb’s children’s music since my fifth grader was a preschooler. Lisa Loeb’s blend of child-friendly lyrics and engaging pop and folk-style music make her music equally enjoyable to listen to for kids and adults. I was so excited to hear that Sterling Publishing was releasing her latest endeavor: A book/CD set entitled “Lisa Loeb’s Songs for Movin’ and Shakin’ – The Air Band Song and Other Toe-Tapping Tunes.”
Let’s face it: reading is one of the best things we can do with our kids. But how many books are designed to not only encourage reading, but dancing, singing, and acting silly with your friends and family too? “Songs for Movin’ and Shakin’ ” does all of this. Its colorful, descriptive illustrations have a fun, retro feel to them. Even non-readers can find loads of clues to the motions of songs via the illustrations. My five year old enjoys thumbing through the pages even when we don’t have the music CD on.
Speaking of the songs, the book is filled with the lyrics to 10 toe-tapping songs. Everything from “Turn It Down, the Air Band Song,” and “Monster Stomp,”to “Hello, Today,” a song with yoga-inspired moves to help start the day off right. The collection also includes some old-fashioned favorites like “Do Your Ears Hang Low,” “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes,” and “Miss Mary Mack.” We love them all!
As a parent, I especially appreciate Lisa Loeb’s music. Many children’s music CDs are kid friendly, but not “adult friendly,” if you know what I mean. Lisa’s music is equally appealing to adult ears, meaning that I enjoy listening to them again and again – and if you have young children, you know that is important! Young ones tend to read favorite books and listen to favorite music over and over, and over, and over… 🙂
