I love this misic!!!

Mike Joyce.The Washington Post


Freedom Rains the new children’s album by The Battersby Duo,encourages reading whistling singing bathing,self-reliance and Elvis Presley impersonations.By goofily paying Elvis,lip service,Tim and Laura provide Parents with what will surely be viewed as a valuable service-a simple,folksy and most entertaining mixture of harmony,rhythm,advice and adventure..Many good songs on this new album by the shamelessly goofy Battersby Duo. One,entitled, Mr Significant,has a live report from the 14th annual convention of silly people.The title song,By the Book, encourages children in their pursuit of literature.(a recurring theme in Battersby songs.) Add, The Copycat Song,an interactive game song,set to a 12 bar blues,and it’s plain to see why Freedom Rains,is a great buy.

More antics and silly songs from The Battersby Duo
Mr Tim and Ms Laura,The Battersby Duo,are up to more musical antics and silly songs here.Ms Laura’s lyrical voice shines in the title song, By the Book. Thomas’ song is cute as it takes a look at the joys of learning to ride a bike for the first time. By the Book, a beautiful song, gets children interested in literature,whilst the whole CD helps them enjoy their world of imagination through song and movement.
