"The production quality is outstanding. The guest musicians use guitars, mandolins, fiddles, dulcimers, slide guitar, clarinet and percussion to give the sound a richness not found in most children's recordings. Polisar's vocals are very playful. A must buy--even if you already own previous Polisar recordings."

School Library Journal

"His humor will get you if you don't watch out...adults and children alike are alternately charmed and disarmed by these humorous songs."

The Tribune
Tiffin, Ohio

"Your music is a true joy! As an elementary music teacher, I've appreciated the humor you use in your approach. As my students sing along, I see them nodding in agreement to what you sing about."

Pam O'Neal, Music Teacher

"He appeals to a wide audience of children--and adults who can still think like children."

Gifted and Talented Magazine

"He's "write" in tune with kids."

Barry Louis Polisar
$14.95, CD
ISBN 0938663-48-8

A recording of Barry's best loved songs about school that feature a new musical accompaniment with fiddle, mandolin, clarinet and guitar. This recording breathes new life into some of Barry's original songs; he sings about a boy who doesn't want to get out of bed in the morning--he turns out to be the Principal--and a deep voiced chorus sings about underwear in a calypso beat. This recording also includes Barry's classic 1975 song, I've Got a Teacher and She's So Mean, a child's heart-felt complaint with a real surprise ending! A funny and meaningful collection.

As the Guide to the Best Recorded Music for Children said, "Barry Louis Polisar talks to kids in a way that is direct but never condescending. Kids love him. He reaches children in their funny bone."
