Overview

1. This book contains funny new songs about school written to familiar tunes—so they—re easy and fun to sing for students and teachers. A few examples include "I've Been Burping in the Classroom" to the tune of "I've Been Working on the Railroad," "Angelica the Beautiful" to the tune of "America the Beautiful," "The Halls Were Decked with Toilet Paper" to the tune of "Deck the Halls," and "Marching Out of School" to the tune of the "Sound Off" (The Army Marching Song).

2. The songs are written by Bruce Lansky and his band of giggle-poets-turned-songwriters and have been tested on a panel of 500 school children. (Kids rated them "much funnier" than the most popular 4-color songbooks on the market, which shall be nameless.)

3. Each page contains 4-color illustrations by Stephen Carpenter that add even more appeal to an already charming collection. This book is sure to fill any musical occasion with giggles because these songs are about smelly lunchboxes, the prettiest girl in school, messy lockers, burping in the classroom, and the day the teacher was sent to detention.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Schenell Agee
Are your students a little bored and uninterested in their regular school routine? I've Been Burping in the Classroom and other Silly Sing-Along Songs is sure to get them moving and grooving. This collection of nineteen songs are set to the tunes of old favorites like "Deck the Halls", "Do your Ears Hang Low," "America My Country 'Tis of Thee," "I've Been Working on the Railroad," "Miss Suzy," and "I'm a Little Teapot," just to name a few. Children will giggle their way through songs about loathsome lockers, labyrinth lunches, and lovely leaders using songs written by the author and several others. Children can create skits and learn to recite poetry by reading or singing these silly songs. This book is a great teacher resource for any school-age program to incorporate multiple learning levels for all students.
