Lisa Loeb's Silly Sing-Along: The Disappointing Pancake and Other Zany SongsSpring 2012 CD with Book
Ten silly, fresh, and fun tracks, each with Lisa Loeb's signature talent and perspective, fill this book with song and style. From the opening "Opposite Day," to the closing "Found A Peanut," every page beckons readers to sing and join the fun. Loeb and friends Michelle Lewis and Dan Petty created the collection of songs. The book includes the lyrics for each song, which are paired with recipes, games, and activities. "I'm a Little Coconut" shares page space with a recipe for Coconut Cream Pie. "Fried Ham" comes with a formula for singing its verses in different silly voices. "Chewing Gum" offers a reminder to keep chewing gum in your mouth (unless you're having a bubble blowing contest), and "A Co Di By Doze" offers instructions for playing the telephone game. Throughout the collection, featured musicians are top notch, and performances are perfectly matched to the lyrics. The hilarious title song, "The Disappointing Pancake", features brilliant banjo playing by none other than Steve Martin. We hope our friend Mindy knows about this book. She'll love it.
