PreS-Gr 5—With a sound reminiscent of the Beatles, this children's rock and roll band offers 12 upbeat songs that both educate and entertain. Grammar is well represented on this album with tracks covering such concepts as contractions, personification, the "qu" combination, and, in the song "ed (Been There, Done That)," verb tenses. Additional selections celebrate reading, the joy of exploring outside, and the water cycle. Ever wonder what superheroes do during their off time? "Superhero Rock Band" answers that question, while "Bad Haircut" tells the story of an unfortunate visit to the barber shop.
VERDICT By using lyrics that make learning fun, the Bazillions have created another album that would be a welcome addition to any collection.
