Additional Information

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (review of BIG FISH LITTLE FISH): " easygoing, feel-good collection of folk-tinged originals... The title track sets the kid-centric mood with its simple philosophy: 'Big fish eat little fish in the ocean and the bay/Big fish eat little fish every night and every day/Big fish eat little fish that's what they say/But I hope the little fish get away.' 'Snowboarding,' 'Swimming in the Swimming Pool,' and 'Make a Tent' - focus the spotlight on some famous kid pursuits. Young listeners will be eager to try substituting their monikers in the lyrics of 'K-A-T-I-E (The Name Spelling Song),' a deceptively simple ditty that draws listeners into an enjoyable exercise in counting, spelling and singing along. And listeners will have a good chuckle at 'Merry Halloween,' in which Santa gets his dates mixed up and arrives on October 31. On a more serious note, 'Shoulda Had a Helmet' recounts the story of a child who has seen the light about wearing a bicycle helmet after suffering a bad fall. Guitar, banjo, strings, accordion and percussion instruments are skillfully woven throughout, adding appeal to the proceedings. All ages."
