Synopsis:

Full of attitude, full of fun, and all lit up with star power, Dog Train is a Recording Industry Association of America Gold Album with 595,000 copies in print. Another great book-and-CD production by Sandra Boynton, it features all original songs recorded by big-name acts and great voices.

Blues Traveler performs a stomping version of the title song, a moody rock journey that Boynton wrote especially for them. And then there's Alison Krauss with "Evermore." And Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme--really--who do the "Boring Song." The Spin Doctors, who channel rock's rebellious side--with a taste of punk--for "Tantrum": "No No No, I don't want to, I don't want to./No no no, I don't want to, no no./Leave me alone. Leave me alone./LEAVE ME ALONE." And the sweetly unexpected pairing of "Weird Al" Yankovic and Kate Winslet (yep, Kate Winslet) as a duet singing "I Need a Nap."

The full-color book features a portion of each song's lyrics set as a little story, illustrated with Boynton's irresistible hippos, cows, dogs, and more dogs. Full lyrics appear in the back.

Synopsis:

Oooooo! From the team that brought you Philadelphia Chickens—It's an all-out rock album for children! and for vintage children!

I am the mother of 5 daughters, ages 17 to 5. This was for my 5 year old. It is the best book, cd we have ever had. I play it in the car and we all enjoy singing to it. I plan on purchasing more copies for my co-workers at work who all have children. It is so wonderful, a car load of singing children. Thank you very much.

This album contains sarcasm, rude and unacceptable topics for a child. My daughter learned the word "boring" from this album. Thanks a lot.
