2003 Award
Inside Out
(Rounder $0.687108886107635 Score:) It may be inside out, but it's totally right side up for getting kids up and moving to samba, rap, swing, and reggae beats. Jessica Harper's lyrics are child centered-her music is crisp and refreshing. Still top rated, Rhythm in My Shoes, PLATINUM AWARD '01. 2˝ & up.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2003.

2003 Award
Little Johnny Brown
(Smithsonian Folkways $0.666666666666667 Score:) With this reissue of a collection from the early '70s, a new generation will enjoy Ella Jenkins, the ultimate songsmith for the young. Features Ms. Jenkins interacting with her young audience with such songs as "Miss Mary Mack" and "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes." These are classic folk songs with plenty of repetition and easy sing-, clap-, and tap-along fun.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2003.

2003 Award
Beethoven's Wig
(Rounder $12.98 Score:) A witty romp through the classics! Unless you consider trifling with classics an offense, you'll love this collection of zany lyrics set to Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, and other composers of classical music. Although some of the lyrics are uneven, young (and not so young) listeners will get a laugh along with help in the game of "name that tune/composer." Beethoven's Fifth is likely to bring to mind the words of "Beethoven's Wig" and Mozart's "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" may henceforth bring to mind a sleep-deprived singer who finds no sleep by counting sheep. Definitely not your Leonard Bernstein's "Young People's Concert" material-more like PDQ Bach for the very young and less sophisticated.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years,Later School Years. Award Year: 2003.

2003 Award
Charlotte's Web
(Listening Library $27 Score:) To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this well loved classic, it has been reissued on a three-CD set narrated by E. B. White, which provides an added historic dimension. While not as lively as some other narrators, he is a natural storyteller.

Age: Early School Years,Later School Years. Award Year: 2003.

2003 Award
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
(by JK Rowling, narrated by Jim Dale, Listening Library $25 Score:) We wish Jim Dale could read all books on tapes. He doesn't just read them really, he performs them with such energy that our testers look forward to getting back into the car to hear the next installment! For kids that find a 700+ page book a little daunting, here's a great way to experience the world of Harry Potter.

Age: Later School Years. Award Year: 2003.

2004 Award
Maggies Door
(Listening Library $ Score:) One our top picks of the year, this is the sequel to the well loved Nory Ryans Song. Set in the time of the Potato Famine, this is the story of Nory and her couageous journey from Galway to her sister's door in Brooklyn. A tear-jerker that might make a long trip feel shorter. 9 & up.

Age: Later School Years. Award Year: 2004.
