2008 Award
Blue Moo
(Rounder $11.98 Score:)

I just want to give Sandra Boynton and Michael Ford a hug for coming through with a wonderful collection of witty music that is performed by a really interesting mix of performers including John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting, Patti LuPone, Neil Sedaka, B.B. King and Davy Jones of Monkey fame. Highlights include Davy Jones singing "My Personal Penguin"...it's just so nice to hear his voice again and sing a song that's fun...and Patti LuPone singing the Rabbit Tango as only she could! The collection is right on target for kids without being about going to the potty or about your three year old's responsibility to the global community. It's happily and beautifully smart, intelligent and entertaining.
