Join the upbeat and wacky Parade with the Banana Slugs as they venture through animals' homes and sing about their characteristics and habitats. Put on your tux for the "Penguin Parade", then sing and dance along with raccoons, ants, otters, fish and even a moose. Only the Slugs could make learning about nature so much fun!
Loves it, but...

"Our five year old son loves it. However, he seems a little frustrated when he can't totally hear all the lyrics in a song, especially the Nose song. (We can't figure out what animal they are speaking of in one verse.) :-(Why are the lyrics not included? It seems like a must, especially for childrens' sakes. A lot of children may like to know exactly what is being sung/said so they can learn from it and sing along. Comprende?"
Great stuff, but not their best

"I was introduced to the Banana Slug String Band via their "Slugs at Sea" CD -- an outstanding album. This CD, the 2nd one of theirs that we bought, is also good, but not quite on par with "Slugs at Sea." My children like this CD, but it doesn't get them singing quite the way the other one did. The songs are interesting, and they have a good message about the environment.This band shows a good range of flexibility in their musical style, lyrics, and presentation without being bogged down in pastels and fluff that often fills much of music made for children. This is a CD that my children AND I can listen to.A fun CD to be sure, and full of good science too! I hope that Elementary school teachers out there know about this group! Alan Holyoak"
Excellent choice for elementary science instruction.

"Teachers will love this CD (or anything by the Banana Slug String Band). The songs are terrific for science instruction, particularly in environmental studies, habitats, animals, and adaptation. Friendly melodies, great lyrics. My students love these songs."
