Barry Louis Polisar is a born storyteller--but his stories are told through songs. He has done what few children's artists have been able to do: combine music, poetry and a keen sense of humor that can relate to a child's experience. Originally released in 1978 and still selling strong, this classic recording includes such favorites as "I Can't, I Can't" and "Don't Put Your Finger Up Your Nose" (we still think that's good advice!). A Landmark recording filled with genuine infectious humor and kid-friendly philosophy, other songs include "Mom and Dad Are Always Right," "Do This, Do That," and "Leroy is a Late Bloomer."
K-Gr 6 Delightful in its unorthodox approach, it includes several gems such as Symphony in Why # Major and Don't Wake Up the Baby or the Baby Will Get You. The album is a listening delight.
