Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Barry Louis Polisar's ability to capture childlike humor, fear, excitement and wonder has always been obvious from his song titles and lyrics. On this tape, his interaction with the audience gives an even better understanding of the man behind such songs as “My Brother Thinks He's a Banana.” In introducing many of his songs, Polisar lets the audience know some of the history behind them. Polisar sings about the world of a child, the adults they have to deal with, and the clichés they have to listen to. In all his songs, children and adults get a chance to laugh at how ridiculous we all can be . . . Family Concert is a good addition to already existing Polisar collections and a good introduction to the man behind the songs.” —School Library Journal

“Polisar's unique blend of giggle-producing children's songs offers a refreshing alternative to the more directive, even didactic variety of much children's music. Family Concert is a worthy introduction to Polisar's music as well as a welcome recap of his choice songs.” —Booklist
