Lyle Cogan’s polished vocal stylings and zesty energy light up these pleasantly happy songs, some familiar ("The Candy Man," "Sing") and some original, written by Cogen with Jeff Gottshalk.

"Wake ‘Em Up, Shake 'Em Up" and "I’ve Got a Limbo Stick" are bouncy invitations to get up and move. "Read" extols the joys to be found in books and "Sticky Kid" pays tribute to kids who never come out unscathed from encounters with a pancake breakfast and a peanut butter-and jelly lunch, edibles that tend to drip and drop when you least expect it. (It also pays tribute to an understanding mom.)
