By Family Fun Magazine (Disney Publishing), Best New Audio, Moira McCormick, August 2004

With high-energy rhythms and lyrics such as “Reach, now touch the floor/Twist, do you want some more?” the Florida-based trio (Physical Ed; Rock n’ Roll Songs that Teach) aims to get kids off the couch.  For those few songs without movement directions – the propulsive “I Spy,” a memory and counting game; the country-flavored “Sad, Bad, Terrible Day,” which offers copying strategies for misfortunes such as having liver for dinner – the liner notes suggest ways to act them out.

By School Library Journal, Audio of the Week, Beverly Bixler, San Antonio, Texas Public Library, May 2004

The Learning Station have been going strong for almost 20 years. Their latest audio release is a fun production with 16 interactive songs, circle games, dances, and activities. Most of the musical styles have a contemporary rock sound, but also include some folk, calypso, and country styles. "It's Showtime" can be used as a show opener. "Get Funky" is a line dance with stepping, foot stomping, jumping, and shimmying. "Body Boogie" encourages listeners to shake different parts of the body. Listeners are instructed to follow different movements depending on the color clothing they are wearing in "If You're Wearing Colors." "Nutty Thumbkin" is a new arrangement, with extended lyrics of "Where Is Thumbkin?" Get ready to climb the vine with "Tarzan" and Jane in a song which goes faster and faster. In "From Your Seat," listeners are given movements to perform while sitting. Youngsters can act out the movements in "Sad, Bad Terrible Day." "Have You Ever Seen a Lassie?" adds laddies as well. "I Spy" teaches different musical instruments. "Follow Me, I Am the Leader" is a circle game. "Ants Go Marching" tells how the ants rescued their Queen from bees. "Say Cheese" gives musical instructions for using a camera. "Simon Says" is a song to use with the traditional game. "Place Your Hands" encourages listeners to touch various parts of their bodies. In "Crab Walking," recommended for P.E. classes, listeners perform an upside down crawl. Use "Body Boogie" and "Place Your Hands" in preschool story time sessions, and the children will have fun with the songs and the activities. This album will be a great resource for librarians, physical education teachers, and early childhood educators.
