Little Bit Clumsy
PARENTS CHOICE AWARD WINNER!!! 'An excellent chioce for youngsters, especially for upper elementary students who have fewer youth recordings from which to choose.'- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, Oct. 96 'Another Winner!'- BILLBOARD MAGAZINE, Nov. 96 '...another collection of truth-filled, entertaining songs that will strike a resonant chord with a lot of kids-adults, too.'- LOS ANGELES TIMES Feb. 96 '....Del Bianco excels at extrapolating universal truths from his own childhood experiences.'- FAMILY FUN MAGAZINE, April 96 To Kids of all ages: It gives me great pleasure to present 'A Little Bit Clumsy', a continued journey into my personal mythology. In the same spirit of 'When I was a Kid', I try to convey some of the universal ups and downs of growing by sharing my own 'clumsiness' as a child always trying to 'get it right' in the world. You'll find that 'A Little Bit Clumsy' isn't just about falling down, tripping on feet, or dropping that glass of milk. It's about the clumsiness of looking for a best friend, having a crush, or asking your parents that same question over and over again! One thing is for sure: we are all 'A Little Bit Clumsy', no matter how young or how old! I encourage all adults to share their 'clumsy' moments with their children or the young people they love and teach. As I have learned, the best role models are not those who preach but those who are willing to show that they are human. Lou Del Bianco WHO IS LOU DEL BIANCO?...... 'THE MOST EXCITING NEW ARRIVAL ON THE CHILDREN'S SCENE IN YEARS'.......T.V. GUIDE HANDS DOWN THE MOST EXCITING PERFORMER IN THE FIELD'....BILLBOARD Actor, singer and storyteller Lou Del Bianco has been working with children of all ages since 1982. According to the New York Times, Lou's dramatic approach to storytelling 'puts pow into passivity!' The Parents Choice foundation states that 'few performers excel as both storyteller and musician, but Lou Del Bianco is one who does.' Lou's second release, 'When I was a Kid' is 'one of the most unique children's albums ever', according to Billboard Magazine. Lou's other releases 'A Little Bit Clumsy', and 'Around the World', have also been honored by Parent's Choice as well as NAPPA, BOOKLIST, CHILD Magazine, Family Fun and a slew of others! Lou's most recent release, 'Lost in School' further chronicles the joys and fears of childhood. Lou has performed all over the country, from the Tastes of Chicago to The Kravis Center to Carnegie Hall. His music video, 'A Little Bit Clumsy', is presently playing on the Learning Channel. He has traveled the Northeast as an artist in residence for 17 years; performed in San Diego at the International Reading Association's annual convention; been a keynote speaker from North Carolina to Massachusetts. 'Stories Alive!', Lou's newest venture, is a local cable television show for children and is now presently in the planning stages! On an educational level, Lou has been an artist-in-residence since 1987 and has worked in many schools alongside teachers to help improve literacy in the classroom. His Kinderart residency (created with his wife, Camille) was honored by New York State as a model program, and his story theater residency has reached thousands of elementary children all over the tri-state area.
