Review of Debi DerryBerry's Very Derryberry CD and Book

10:43 AM

Kid's CD's aren't my favorite thing to review. I'll admit, I try to get my kids to appreciate my own music, and tend to avoid the kiddie-themed stuff on the market today. When we had the chance to review Debi Derryberry's "Very Derryberry" CD and book, I kept an open mind.

I enjoyed it. The kids loved it! Our three and a half hour car ride was made a bit more jazzy with the sounds of the CD, and I already have my favorites to skip to in a pinch. The Spanish-inspired "Lechita Chocolate" made my kids dance, and I loved how it incorporated our favorite treat (chocolate milk) into a song my kids could relate to. We also really dug the rocked-out version of "Skinnamarink" -- my kids couldn't believe that I already knew the words to this one. "The Tonsil Song" will get stuck in your head..... and there is even a laid-back version of "Swingin' On a Star" to chill out to.

The tunes of Debi Derryberry are silly. But they aren't stupid. Well-written lyrics, a non-irritating musical style (that appreciates jazz and rock roots but doesn't try to act too grownup), and the pleasantly unique voice of Ms. Debi make these songs an instant solution to manic Mondays or lazy Saturdays. To be brief -- it worked for us!



The book was nice, too. Pictures of bananas and licorice kept my youngest ones' attention throughout. It was a good read, and will be a bedtime favorite, I'm sure!
