Excellent for sing a longs with young people June 2 2011
By Lulu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered this on suggestion from a friend who used it for her volunteer work in the schools. As I do the same thing I thought it would be great for 'my' young students as well. It was a hit. This is a book that is great which comes with a CD that even the older generation will not get sick of listening to.

Rockin & Rollin Again With My Granddaughter Oct. 15 2010
By Saramel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a teenager in the 60's, I was rockin & rollin with Neil Sedaka. I ordered the book & CD the same day I heard Neil on the radio promoting the book. I actually "sang" this book along with the CD to my 3 year old granddaughter. When we got to the end, she said "more Nana". By the 4th "reading" she was also singing the words. It was glorious sharing my old music with new words with my grandchild. The artwork is lively and colorful. When we were finished singing, we went through each page slowly and talked about each animal in the story and what they were doing. It was wonderful! Thank you Neil!!

Both children and adults will be tapping their toes and humming along to Neil Sedaka's bouncy WAKING UP IS HARD TO DO. Grammy and every other award winner for his hit songs Sedaka has written new lyrics for Breaking Up Is Hard To Do especially for youngsters to have them bouncing out of bed.

Illustrator Daniel Miyares has created a zoo full of colorful animals to croon along with the song. His art is totally delightful, popping with bright colors. Plus, a CD of three songs is included.

How's that for a triple treat?

Wonderful pictures. The CD makes the experience. Even those too young to remember Neil Sedaka will dance and sing to this.

A must read for those with hesitant risers in the mornings! March 5 2012
By JAC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has become a new part of our morning ritual. It helps get the kids up and moving. They actually enjoy getting up now. You must use this book if you have a child who is reluctant to get up in the morning.
