Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“On this recording, Polisar explores being compared to the perfect child who lives next door (“He Eats Asparagus, Why Can't You Be That Way?”), playing parents against each other (“Mom Said No, I Said Why”), and having responsibility for a young sibling (“Go and Hush the Baby”). The lyrics almost always speak to the reality of children's lives. The humor in each song is Polisar's method of enabling children to look at what goes right and what goes wrong in their lives. The production is high quality. Many of the songs are mixed on several tracks to create a fuller sound. The acoustic guitar on most tracks allows for the lyrics to take center stage. Polisar's brand of humor is unique in children's recordings. This is a good addition for collections wanting to expand their Polisar repertoire or for those purchasing their first recording by the artist.” —School Library Journal
