"Footloose" - Children's Book #Review & #Giveaway! (2 Winners) (U.S.) Ends 12/15 #HolidayGiftGuide #HGG2016 #Footloose4Kids

Kenny Loggins re-wrote and re-recorded the original Footloose song with lyrics about an animal dance party at the zoo--he's a grandpa now and has been working on some new songs for kids, parents and grandparents. The new song is now a children’s picture book illustrated by award-winning children’s book illustrator Tim Bowers.

About the Book:
Time to cut loose! Have a rockin' time introducing children to the fun of Footloose, rewritten for children by the one and only Kenny Loggins. As a zookeeper named Jack joins the zoo animals in an all-night dance party, this new original story from Loggins is sure to get your feet moving. Little ones will love the cast of characters, including the rockin' chimp Louise ("Geez, Louise"), Mister DJ Elephant, the lemur Marie ("Oo Wee, Marie"), Milo the wombat, Luke the funkiest cat in the zoo, and so many more rocking, bopping, boogeying, tangoing, shaking, rattling and rolling animals!

To add to the fun, the book includes a CD with new recordings by Kenny Loggins. Kids and parents can sing along to the classic hit with new lyrics, as well as a three-song medley families will love.

“Loggins invites readers to ‘slip on their dancin’ shoes’ and join a rowdy cast of animals who show off several dancing styles....a fun way for parents and grandparents to ‘cut footloose’ with a new generation.” - Publishers Weekly

“full-bleed double-page spreads are appropriately kinetic and playful... ‘Slip on your dancin’ shoes,’ indeed.”- Kirkus Reviews

“A natural fit for kids. Irrepressibly bouncy with slingshotting verses and a shout-worthy chorus”- Booklist

My Review:
I grew up in the 80's. I loved it! While I didn't completely understand it, I did love the music and movies. Footloose was one of my favorites! So when I saw that Kenny Loggins had created a children's book, along with a CD of Footloose redone to go with the book, I just had to review a copy! The CD includes two songs, "Footloose" and "Monkey Town Melody." My aunt and cousins used to think it was so funny to sing the "Monkey Town Melody" to my sisters and I when we were little.

If you know the Footloose song, then you can't resist reading the book without singing the words along to the Footloose tune! It's tough not to do.

I recommend this book is for children and adults of all ages. It's a lot of fun.
