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.
We received a copy of the book and CD in exchange for an honest review.
Footloose has always been a favorite song of mine. Now there is a book that I can share with my daughter. Kenny Loggins has made such a fun book! The illustrations are so bright and cheery.
The book follows a zookeeper and all the animals for a dance party. With all the animals dancing and bopping around, it’s hard not to do it along with them. With the accompanying CD, it definitely brings the book and the music to life.
I cannot wait to share this book with my daughter kindergarten class. I will be bringing the book and the CD and having our own dance party with animal crackers for snack! I know they will love it as much as we did.
