Have a rockin' time introducing children to Footloose,rewritten for children by the one and only Kenny Loggins himself. Features a bonus CD with the new children's "Footloose," performed by Kenny Loggins.

Time to cut loose! Have a rockin' time introducing children to the fun of Footloose, rewritten for children by the one and only Kenny Loggins. As a zookeeper named Jack joins the zoo animals in an all-night dance party, this new original story from Loggins is sure to get your feet moving. Little ones will love the cast of characters, including the rockin' chimp Louise ("Geez, Louise"), Mister DJ Elephant, the lemur Marie ("Oo Wee, Marie"), Milo the wombat, Luke the funkiest cat in the zoo, and so many more rocking, bopping, boogeying, tangoing, shaking, rattling and rolling animals!

To add to the fun, the book includes a CD with new recordings by Kenny Loggins. Kids and parents can sing along to the classic hit with new lyrics, as well as a three-song medley families will love

What an awesome mix of a classic song, turned into the perfect story for young children. With rhyming, counting, and a rhythm that will have you moving your feet. This is a fantastic, energetic read aloud! 

Accompanied with a CD featuring the original Footloose song, this book is the perfect gift for kids of all ages. A fun story, and cute illustrations, will have kids loving the discovery of what these silly animals do after their zoo closes. This is great picture book that young children will love to have read to them.

We love the story, and the illustrations. I love that a song I grew up enjoying is now a song that has been recreated into a children's picture book, for even the youngest of kids to enjoy. This is a book that is definitely worth picking up! 

Veterans Day #veteransDay

It's Veterans Day, today in the USA. We'd like to take a moment to honor all who have served our country. THANK YOU Veterans for all your service & sacrifices and to your families, thank you for your sacrifices. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
