Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Lisa Loeb's Songs for Movin' and Shakin':

"[D]esigned for maximum movement and rhythm . . . The CD is essential . . . and it is definitely the highlight of this collaboration. With vocals by Lisa Loeb, Dan Petty, Michelle Lewis, and the Campers, joining acoustic guitar, bass, drums, piano or keyboard, the recording presents a varied collection of songs to encourage participation from a rhythmic stomp ('Everybody Wake Up') to a lyric sun salutation with yoga movement ('Hello Today') . . . guaranteed to leave a smile on the face of listeners.” —School Library Journal
 
"The energy is practically radiating off the pages, with retro-cool illustrations that fill the page, a fun design, and a mixture of classic songs and Loeb's own creations . . . if adults master the moves (easy to do) and pop in the CD, you'll have a dance party in no time.” —Booklist

“My girls and I love to sing and Lisa's songs never fail to inspire outrageous joy for all of us!”—Marcia Cross

“Hearing my girls giggle at the lyrics of Lisa's songs makes me smile. How fun to celebrate, dance, and play together with her music!” —Mallika Chopra

“Lisa's voice is as charming and sweet as ever and lends itself perfectly to these fun, playful songs. I love her and so do my girls. These songs are the perfect addition to our nightly dance parties! Thank you, Lisa!” —Sarah McLachlan

Praise for Lisa Loeb's Silly Sing-Along: The Disappointing Pancake and Other Zany Songs:
 
“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 four-year-old is addicted to 'I'm a Little Coconut.' And, as a parent, I love these songs.”—Tori Spelling
 
“This book will magically put a smile on your face and in your heart.”—RuPaul
 
“Lisa Loeb has written the silliest book ever. But I'm deadly serious when I say: You will love it.”—A.J. Jacobs

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—True to its title, this brief book and CD introduce 10 interactive songs, some Loeb originals, all designed for maximum movement and rhythm. Popular folk or camp tunes include "Miss Mary Mack," "Peanut Butter and Jelly," "Do Your Ears Hang Low?" and "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes." Each spread provides the lyrics and cartoon images, giving instruction for movement. Occasional boxed instructions give additional information about the song or performance tips. While adults can use the book as a source for the lyrics, the lack of contrast between background and fonts, and cluttered images or decoration create pages that are challenging to read. The CD is essential to the book, as no musical notation is included, and it is definitely the highlight of this collaboration. With vocals by Lisa Loeb, Dan Petty, Michelle Lewis, and the Campers, joining acoustic guitar, bass, drums, piano or keyboard, the recording presents a varied collection of songs to encourage participation from a rhythmic stomp ("Everybody Wake Up") to a lyric sun salutation with yoga movement ("Hello Today"). A general purchase with a sprinkling of humor that's guaranteed to leave a smile on the face of listeners.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX
