School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Award-winning children's recording artist Paul Vincent Nunes (aka Vincent) presents 15 original songs on his fourth album for children. These lively, child-friendly tunes help youngsters build skills like counting, sequencing, recognizing opposites and basic geometric shapes, and learning elements of early literacy and cultural diversity. The title song uses the race between the tortoise and the hare to explain that the largest of tasks begins with small steps. "You Can't Buy the Sun" shows children that money can't buy everything. Vincent celebrates the Irish with "You Don't Have to Be Irish to Sing an Irish Song," which has a wonderful lilting melody. In "When My Grandma Turned 91," the lyrics tell of Grandma's exploits at different ages: at 91, she wrestles an alligator; at 93, she climbs a coconut tree; at 97, she rides a roller coaster, etc. Other songs include "Yo-Yo Yodel"; "Uncle Jonathan," about recycling; "Allergies"; "Julia Noon's Balloon"; "My Picture of You"; "Yellow Flower"; "Firestation"; "My Triangle"; "Opposite Blues"; and "Staten Island Cowboy." Vincent's very pleasant voice is accompanied by a children's chorus. The background instruments, which include guitars, keyboards, mandolins, banjos, and penny whistles among others, are very professionally played. This excellent recording is on a par with Raffi and other greats in children's music.-Beverly Bixler, San Antonio Public Library, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
