Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ross Boissoneau
Tom Chapin is simply one of the most charming performers in the entire children's music field, and Zag Zig is one of his best. Whether it's the zesty horn charts and witty lyrics of "Vitamin Si," or "The Backwards Birthday Party," or this album's installment of the adventures of Bruno, "Bruno's Christmas On The Mall," it's a singalong fun-fest. Topping it off is Chapin's tale of a youngster looking for a way to be a music hero. "Johnny Glockenspiel" is hysterical, danceable, and totally irresistible.

    The best childrens music made!

    Tom Chapin's music is educational as well as enjoyable. My children are 12 and 8 and still love his music. I know that I miss the car trips when his tunes were on the radio. Any time I need to buy a gift for a child from 3 to 6, I alway's buy a cd of his. Now that I work in a nusery school I can spread the word of his great work.
