Turn on the Music
'... classy production, intelligent wordplay and keen, gentle humor ...' Parents Choice, Vol 12 no. 3. Share with children the excitement of language and help them improve word comprehension and powers of imagination with these lively lyrics and memorable melodies. The songs are written from a child's point of view: what a child wishes, feels and imagines. The lyrics deal in a thoughtful and humorous way with the joys, challenges and conflicts children experience in their growing years. A booklet is included which includes lyrics and questions for discussion to encourage interaction between children and adults. Parent's Choice Award Gold Winner! Review TURN ON THE MUSIC! Hap Palmer. Hap-Pal Music, Cassette HP150, $9.95. Ages 6-8 Hap Palmer probably has one of the smothest, most comforting voices in all of children's music. Combined with classy production, intelligent wordplay and keen, gentle humor it makes his work a three-time Parents' Choice Award winner. Palmer chips away at gender barriers with songs like 'Francie Had A Football'; sheds light on the consequences of irresponibility in 'Amanda Schlupp'; reminds kids that adults were once kids in 'When Daddy Was A Little Boy'; and slips in a encouraging word about self-confidence in 'You Can Do It'; 'When you swing and miss remember that/soon you'll get another chance at bat'. Good advice for any age. Parents' Choice Vol 12, No. 3 1989 .
