“All Around the Kitchen” Dan Zanes from “Live! All Around the Kitchen” CD available on iTunes
Why do you see a picture of a rooster with a song called “All Around the Kitchen,” you ask? Simple – because the words “cock-a-doodle-doodle-doo” appear in pretty much every line of the song.
Dan Zanes is a unique musician – his music is mostly for children, but strongly tinged with folk and rock. This is a very fun and active song that four-and-five-year-olds love. (It goes a little fast for very little ones.) There’s plenty of time for improvisational dancing and several “stop”s when children have to stop, freeze and follow some silly directions.
Silly and fun as it is, this song encourages careful listening and dancing to the beat. It’s also a few minutes of irresistable dance music – always a good thing, in or out of the kitchen!
