Review:
“There’s a spider on your toenail…A spider on your knee….” The “Itsy Bitsy Spider” covers a lot more territory than the garden spout in Hap Palmer’s version of this childhood favorite. Palmer—musician, wordsmith, educator—is tops in using music and movement to teach skills and stimulate imagination. Here he adds dimension to familiar children’s songs, enlivening them with playful new words and rhythms. “I’m a Little Teapot” features a surprisingly active piece of crockery that dances up a storm; “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” is enriched with a poetic new second verse that includes a beautiful line from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Includes lyrics and activities for each song.
