i loved it
i love this c.d. i have this on tape, but the c.d. is so much easier to use. will order more.

Lynn Francis

Lots of wonderful songs!
This CD is wonderful. Usually there is 1, maybe 2 songs on a CD that really clicks with the boys and girls. I do most every song on this CD. It really sends the message of how special and unique each child is.

Beverly M.

A children's CLASSIC !
This is a CLASSIC CD which MUST be in any pre-school music collection. This is my 25th year teaching pre-shool music at my church and this CD is my favorite !

Gina Harrell

Musical genius
My kindergarteners and 1st graders love it. I'm sure we'll use it again and again.
Hap Palmer possesses quite the musical genius!

Kate

great for all ages of kids
Great for learning-music makes the ideas stick in your head and this goes for every age. My son just loves this cd since he first heard it in school. He is very ecclectic with his music-everything from rock and roll to folk to nursery tunes, etc. This is one of his favorites and well it should be.

I've taught pre-school for about 20 years and Hap Palmer is my
favorite artist. The children love his music and so do I!

Walter, the Waltzing Worm
Loved several of the songs; plan to use one as our theme song at graduation in the spring (4 year olds). Came up with rope worms to portray Walter, the worm. My classes LOVE this song and the "pretend" worm. Can't use all the songs in my "movement" class but several are big hits.
