Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Today you may feel SILLY when you pick up this delightful hands-on fun-for-the-whole-family songbook. Jump in. The water's fine and FUNNY.” -Jamie Lee Curtis
 
“One of my favorite things to do with my girls is to sing together at home and in the car. We all love acting out Lisa's songs, and it's the one CD my kids always scream for.” -Brooke Shields
 
“My kids flipped for Lisa's silly songs. They love the songs and totally connect to the words. My 4 year old is addicted to “I'm a Little Coconut”.” -Tori Spelling
 
“Lisa Loeb has written the silliest book ever. But I'm deadly serious when I say: You will love it.”
-AJ Jacobs

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3—Pop singer Loeb has gathered 10 songs for this book, including four of her own. Familiar selections include "Chewing Gum," "A Co Di By Doze (A Cold in My Nose)," and "Found a Peanut." Some have suggested actions or activities to go with them and others have short explanations of their origins, etc. ("I'm a Little Coconut" has an easy-to-make coconut cream pie recipe.) The result is a warm and funny collection. Loeb sings all of the songs with guitar and special-effects accompaniment on the CD. She has a pleasant voice, and it is easy to understand all the words. Sturdy pages and lively, colorful cartoon illustrations complete the package. Although the number of songs is not many for an entire book, the endeavor is well done.—Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
Kirkus Reviews
Songs for singing around a campfire--or anywhere, with s'mores! Loeb makes no pretense to hide her fondness for summer camp. Her previous children's album (Camp Lisa, 2008) contained many camp favorites, while her non-profit, The Camp Lisa Foundation, helps underprivileged kids experience the joy of sleeping under the stars. Here, Loeb offers a songbook to go along with her musical adventures. Comprised of four original songs and six camp standards, each tune has the lyrics playfully displayed. Loeb includes small introductions (often camp memories), activities, recipes and hand motions to act out. With swirls aplenty and florid script, O'Rourke creates a decidedly mod interior. A Hanna-Barbera–esque Loeb, complete with cat's-eye glasses, is front and center. Children will bop to the snappy beat of "I'm a Little Coconut" and delight in the topsy-turvy "Opposite Day." And who doesn't like to croon the (seemingly) endless "Found a Peanut"? Nostalgic reminiscences join inventive, musical songwriting in this inclusive package. Purportedly for kids, but adults will find their share here as well. (author's note, CD) (Nonfiction. 4-8)
