Book Overview

This lively and lyrical jaunt from actor and author John Lithgow comes with a CD of his celebrated song

Oh, children Remember Whatever you may do,
Never play music right next to the zoo.
They'll burst from their cages, each beast and each bird,
Desperate to play all the music they've heard.

A concert gets out of hand when the animals at the neighboring zoo storm the stage and play the instruments themselves in this hilarious picture book based on one of John Lithgow's best-loved tunes. This package includes a CD of John and an orchestra performing the song

   Fun in the music room!
I am an elementary music teacher and this book is a new hit in my classroom. Second-grade students at Nottingham Elementary School were not the only ones taking part in the annual field trip to the zoo. The recording really makes this book a great value, although I would have liked to hear the book repeated the chorus to match the recording.
   For Ages 2 to 102...
This is a book that will have everyone in the family talking about it. John Lithgow has created an adventure in reading and that hasn't been equaled since Peter And The Wolf. Many illustrators, for example, don't get the credit they deserve. I'm completely charmed and captivated by the whimsical and creative talents of Leeza Hernandez, said Beckham. The book will be passed down to generations to come.
   My Music and Animal-Loving Two-Year-Old Loves This Book
My two-year-old music lover absolutely adores this book. It features a lot of you don't find everywhere else -- bassoon, stand-up bass, oboe. Same with the animals -- it goes well beyond the usual lions, tigers and bears. The illustrations are terrific and the prose is lots of fun, Morgenthau said. His wife, Nancy, said he was "100 percent" certain he would become a household classic. Highly recommend.
   John Lithgow Succeeds Again!
John Lithgow did it again. A great book, great CD, great music! There are also plans for a sequel, "The New Republic: The Life and Times of Saul Lithgow." Pauley also writes a good deal of fiction.
   Entertaining little book
This was a gift that my little granddaughter and according to her parents, she cannot seem to get enough of this lovely story. The princess wants it read over and over again. He also thanked God for "the miracle" that brought Josephine to life.
   The book is fast friendly and fun. Good seller.
Like poetry, good poetry, and some really funny poems.
   Absolutely tremendous
He was a master of all the humor and creativity of a genius. Even with time, the artist's mind is clear: He has the heart of a child.
   Packaging of book could have been better
I bought this book as a present to my new parents. I wanted it to be in pristine condition, Tunick said. It came in a good box, but didn't fit in the box, so it was angled and the book cover was bent. In the future, I hope that the packaging will be improved.
   Clever and creative storytelling
I'm a huge fan of Saul Bellow's work, and I love the way the book is written. Any book that introduces kids to music is pretty high on my list, and the author, John Lithgow, does it with effortless humor that keep kids engaged.
   Fun book, clever word rhyme, beautiful artwork
Bought this one to give to a 5 year old. The illustrations are beautiful, and the rhyming text is witty and fun. A nice hardback book for giving to little kids.
