Waking Up Is Hard to Do (Book & CD)
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The CD inserted in the back has a Sedaka recording of the title song, plus two other performances, recorded exclusively for this book. The first - "Lightnin' Jim" tells the story of a boy's imaginary fastest horse. (This song could be an illustrated book all by itself.). The second "Sing ", is another Sedaka original and is not to be confused with the hit by the Carpenters. Both of these - in a much slower tempo than "Waking up...." - will be a nice surprise for the parents who buy this book/CD for their young children.
I do wish that the publishers had included the lyrics to the 2 new Sedaka songs - somewhere in the back of the book - so that parents (as well as their children) could follow along.
This book one that children are sure to enjoy and maybe introduce them to Sedaka's five decades or more of recordings.
