Turn On The Music
Hap Palmer, Hap-Pal Music HP150E
Ages 6-8

Hap Palmer probably has one of the smothest, most comforting voices in all of children's music. Combined with classy production, intelligent wordplay and keen, gentle humor it makes his work a three-time Parents' Choice Award winner. Palmer chips away at gender barriers with songs like "Francie Had A Football"; sheds light on the consequences of irresponibility in "Amanda Schlupp"; reminds kids that adults were once kids in "When Daddy Was A Little Boy"; and slips in a encouraging word about self-confidence in "You Can Do It"; "When you swing and miss remember that/soon you'll get another chance at bat". Good advice for any age.
