"Barry Louis Polisar was an early pioneer of children's music when his wacky and wonderfully innovative songs began eliciting giggles decades ago. This is a must have for all libraries serving young children."

School Library Journal

"His music is as contagious as the common cold in a kindergarten. The only way you won't enjoy these songs is if you somehow managed to skip childhood yourself."

The Deseret News
Salt Lake City, Utah

"His songs are about the experience and interests of children."

The Weekly Reader

"Recordings kids will love."

Good Housekeeping Magazine

"Barry Louis Polisar sings songs kids really can identify with."

The Sacramento Bee
Sacramento, California

"Polisar's kid charisma comes through loud and clear."

The Detroit Free Press, Detroit, Michigan

"Forced to single out what, exactly, makes Barry Louis Polisar a brilliant and hilarious kids' artist, one would be hard-pressed to pick between his absurdist songwriting and his deadpan delivery. This album bubbles over with silliness."

Named "one of the best Children's Recordings of all time" in The American Library Association's Children's Jukebox, this Parents' Choice Award winning recording features Barry's best-loved songs about animals grouped together for the first time.

With a polished musical accompaniment, this CD is perfect for younger children and has many of Barry's early favorites including I've Got a Dog and My Dog's Name is Cat (one of Barry's early hits, recorded by Big Bird!). On this Parents' Choice Award-winning recording, Barry is joined by a number of talented studio musicians on guitar, fiddle, mandolin, percussion and clarinet. As The Register Guard of Eugene, Oregon said, "It's dog-gone funny."
