Get Outdoors! Gets Another Fabulous Review!
The School Library Journal rates "Get Outdoors!" as a "Top Pick" in media for teachers and librarians! And calls it "a must have for every collection." Check out the full review below. We are thrilled with this fantastic review of our award-winning album (Get Outdoors! won a 2013 Parent's Choice Award too.)
Get Outdoors! Performed by Jeff Kagan and Paige Doughty.
PreS-Gr 2 – Veteran children’s performers Kagan and Doughty really hit all the right notes with Get Outdoors! The majority of the album focuses on nature and ecology, with an emphasis on bats, mosquitos, meadowlarks, trees, and plate tectonics. Other songs highlight the need for bicyclists and cars to share the road and the proper technique for crossing the street. Employing a variety of musical genres, each song features beautiful lyrics and music that ranges from upbeat dance and sing-along tunes to songs as gentle as a lullaby. Two particularly clever numbers are “Scoopa-Doop-Poop,” about the importance of picking up after your dog, and “Rosa & Douglas,” regarding the relationship between a pine and a fir tree in the forest. Get Outdoors! is fun and educational, but never didactic. Teachers will like using this album in class while families will enjoy listening to it over and over again. A must-have for every collection.–Veronica De Fazio, Plainfield Public Library District, IL
