Review:

Acoustic musician and music educator Ken Cooper has an inviting, down-home way with a song, finding inspiration in the interconnectedness of living things, confidence-building ("Yes I Can") and the joy of reading ("Dr. Seuss Is On the Loose"). Among the highlights: Cooper’s humorous spin on the definition of living spaces ("a peach is a house for a peach pit/a sandwich is a house for ham" in "A House is a House for Me") and a tribute to that ubiquitous pause-filler, "Um."
