Elgielene and I never had kids. Not because we didn’t want them. But there were complications. And that’s another story I’m not gettin’ into right now. But I’ve had somewhere around 30 nieces and nephews to observe. So, I’ve seen enough silly things kids do to fill up an album.
And I DID fill up an album about the silly things kids do.
A few of those songs were named after stores who used to carry my CD’s of music for kids. And one of those was called “Apple Doodles,” and it was definitely about those silly things kids do. Like smearing peanut butter and jelly on their clothes. And gettin’ bubblegum stuck in their hair. Or annoying the adults with their water guns.
Yeah, that’s all in the Apple Doodles song. And it’s just one of ten songs on the “Kiddin’ Around” collection of fun kids music. I used to only sell the CD. But last year (2020) I compiled the lyrics into a book…which is also a coloring book and drawing book…and published the book on Amazon.
The book description there says…
“Kiddin’ Around is a collection of fun, goofy songs in one of the funnest sing along with me books you’re gonna find. Because when you open this book, somewhere inside is a link to all the downloadable free MP3s. There’s a song about all the things you’re not supposed to do…that you can’t do. Songs about monkeys, cool kids who gotta keep it real, islands, bellies, and even toys. You’ll enjoy watching your kids sing-along as they color and draw in this fun book, by author Tony Funderburk. Just what you’d expect from a writer whose last name starts with FUN.”
And here’s the thing…
The book has the lyrics to all the songs. Plus, there are plenty of drawing and coloring pages, too. And then, there’s a super secret link to download all the songs that go with the lyrics. For Fa-Ree. So, if you have silly kids or grandkids or nieces and nephews, or you know someone who does, the link to your songbook (which is also a coloring book and drawing book) for them.
You can’t help it if you’re cute
