Here's what Parents choice says about
We're On Our Way:
Teddy bears, tooth brushes, trips to the library - the subjects of these eleven songs are long on child-appeal and near and dear to parents' hearts. A variety of styles keeps the album fresh and fun, from the 40's swing-band sound of Tiger with a Toothbrush, to a boogie-woogie Teddy Took a Train Ride, to a country western Truck Driver's Song. Several are truly inspired: Tina Took Her Tap Shoes manages to rhyme "soft shoe" with "tofu", while Partytime in the Mud could send young and old alike out to get down and dirty. A production for parents and children to listen and relate to with pleasure.
Buckle up and take a ride all over town with Hap Palmer. From rolling in a stroller to traveling by train with a teddy bear, this new collection of the best traveling songs will keep you and your child in motion. This CD is a delightful collection of original songs about children reaching out into the world - doing things, going places, exploring, discovering, creating and growing. Whether you're in the car or in the living room, this is joyful entertainment for the whole family.
Explore the big wide world in song with this musical tribute to childhood and imagination. Take a trip to the library to meet story book friends, dance around the grocery store with Tina and her tap shoes, float to the park in a hot air balloon or bounce around the forest with a jolly bear name Freddy Fuzzywizz. Roll down the highway in an eighteen wheel truck then accompany a teddy bear on a trip from a factory to your birthday party. There are plenty of adventures right at home too. Swing on a swing, play in the mud or learn to brush your teeth with a good natured tiger. Lively rhythms and clever lyrics presented in an entertaining variety of musical styles.
