"Seasoned children''s performer Eric Ode brings to the table a complete feast of energy-filled new songs and fun lyrics that totally invite and encourage participation. Mom and dad may even embarrass themselves by dancing ''round the condo..." - John Wood, https://www.tradebit.com.
"Eric Ode again strikes all the right chords in this, his fifth album, by combining message-filled lyrics and silly songs with rollicking rhythms. Interspersed with the songs are some of Ode''s fun-filled poems set to music such as "An Elephant Sitting in My Bathtub" and "How to Cure the Hiccups." An extremely enjoyable collection of songs that the whole family will love." - School Library Journal, July 2005
"With jazzy song stylings and an emphasis on humor, singer-songwriter Eric Ode and his outstanding multi-instrument band serve up engaging songs and poems about an elephant''s everlasting bubble bath, a don''t-try-this-at-home hiccup cure and a mutually beneficial arrangement between a forgetful camel and a slow-moving turtle. Other upbeat musical flights of fancy simply spring from a child''s life of chores and favorite shoes, field trips and the rewards that books can bring." - Parents'' Choice Foundation, 2005
"It''s a toss-up whether the 12 wacky cuts on this album are poems set to music or original songs with lyrics reminiscent of poets Jack Prelutsky or Shel Silverstein. Either way, the high-energy humor and bouncy beat will tickle funny bones and set toes tapping. Hand claps, hoots, and whistles mix with a wide variety of musical instruments (from trumpet to mandolin), off-the-cuff musician comments, and a lively kids'' chorus in this enjoyable CD." - Booklist, June 2005
We''re glad you found your way to this album - Eric''s fifth CD of original music for children and their families. Take a minute to listen. You''ll like what you hear.
