'Petaluma singer-songwriter James K returns with his second self-produced CD of original songs appealing to elementary- and middle-school-aged kids. And, like his 1998 debut A Giggle Can Wiggle It's Way through a Wall, James K shows an easy command of musical styles, from Cajun to country, blues to show tunes. On this outing, he's joined by a small children's choir and a host of local musicians. These very listenable songs are filled with empowering messages of self-esteem and love, but James K knows how to keep it fun, whether he's stalking the wild asparagus or riding the range.' North Bay Bohemian 'These happy and humorous songs from singer-songwriter James K are notable for their uncloying, gentle spirit and easy-going, image-rich lyrics that both reassure and entertain. A 'Chick-a-Moo' may be a comical cross between chicken and cow, but 'she loves to play just like us.' 'The Good Green Earth' pays homage to nature, and helps listeners learn the days of the week and months in the year, too. In 'Ride That Train,' a bouncy railway adventure celebrates the comfy pleasures in a visit to Grandma and Grandpa. 'Goodnight Moon' is a musical bedtime hug.''Lynne Heffley ©2002 Parents' Choice.
