Ages: 3 & up (Adults LOVE it too!)
This musical collection is brimming with 14 lively action songs, circle games and upbeat, learning fun. Top rated internationally by educators and parents this CD features the HIT songs, Tony Chestnut, Five Little Monkeys and Shiny Clean Dance. On top of all this fun, its quite a healthy workout too!
Everyone’s favorite song by far is Tony Chestnut! If you haven’t heard of this song, then you’ve missed out on a LOT of FUN! Tony Chestnut is a delightful, silly tune that will have everyone moving and laughing as they try to keep up with movements that use body parts to replace words; point to your toe, knee, chest and nut (head). As it speeds up, so does the fun (Even a blast for a group of business professionals who have been sitting in a long meeting!).
Includes booklet with lyrics and movements.

I am a preschool teacher and my preschoolers love The Learning Stations Tony Chestnut and Fun time Action Songs CD. These preschoolers love dancing and singing to the great songs that are on this CD, plus it is a great way for them to burn off some of their energy. My favorite song is Tony Chestnut. I think the reason that I like it so much is because of the actions. For example when you sing the To in Tony, you would touch your toe, sing the Ny and you touch your knee. For Chest, obviously you touch your chest and for nut you touch your head. Kind of reminds me of the head, shoulders, knees and toes song! The CD contains a booklet that has all the songs lyrics as well as diagrams to show what actions are being taken if needed.
My students have limited English speaking skills but dearly love the songs on the “Tony Chestnut” c.d. How exciting it is to see them so thrilled about enjoying the school day since your songs are a part of our routine daily!

I thought you might enjoy my story about the Tony Chestnut Song. I heard your presentation at NAEYC and I bought the CD. I work with teachers and parents in Head Start not directly with children. Every month I do a presentation at our parent policy council about literacy. In Dec. as part of my presentation I taught the parents and other adults the Tony Chestnut Song. It was hysterical but a ton of fun. Later that month I was at a parent meeting to do a presentation and a parent asked if I was planning to do the Tony Chestnut song. I wasn’t and I didn’t have the CD but needless to say we did the song anyway. I love to see parents having fun.
Thanks so much.

I was introduced to your “Tony Chestnut” and “Wild Things” songs at a “NC Caring For Children’s Conference” that I attended in Fayetteville, NC on April 1, 2006. I was very impressed with your music. I know the children in our Center would love your music. Many thanks!
