Vote for Jim Gill

Performed by Jim Gill. CD. 42 min. Jim Gill Music, Inc. 2016. $16.
COPY ISBN
PreS-Gr 3—Filled with 14 new songs that encourage "music play" and featuring a bevy of extremely talented musicians, Gill's newest album is a delight from beginning to end. Children will be up and moving from the first note to the last. Wordplay is the name of the game in the title song, "Vote for Jim Gill," which examines the double meaning of phrases that can refer to parts of the body as well as campaign promises. "My Accordion Is on the Run" and "Conducting Can Be Fun" playfully explore the world of classical music. Many of the songs, including "Bouncing, Hopping and Jumping," "Hammer and Saw," "The Countdown," and "One from the Left (a Finger Play)" would be perfect additions to storytimes, music classes, or family play time.
VERDICT This is a must-have for librarians and early education teachers.
