Review:
Hap Palmer, the dean of movement songs and rhyming rhythms presents an expanded version of his clever, action-packed album. Stimulating both imagination and movement, these 24 original songs are packed with kid-pleasing commands-- "The mice go marching quietly by, Shh! Shh!....The mighty monster marches by, Kaboom!, Kaboom!....Beat a drum, click your tongue..." Palmer also encourages tapping, shaking, ringing and clapping in songs such as "Switch on the Music," and "Bean Bag Shake." "Homemade Band" includes simple instrument-making instructions, and each song comes with suggestions for alternative play.
