Winner of the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album for Children, this high-energy production is foot-stomping fun. Tom Chapin's easy-going narration sets the tone for this story about Miles and his Swamp Band, whose music is in hot demand - from sharp-toothed alligators at an all-night ball where the band is earmarked to entertain and be the main course! Jazzy music plays throughout as Chapin both reads and sings this entertaining book.
Riding on the immortal words of this classic folksong, take a delightful journey inside the train cars, following the "City of New Orleans" from Chicago to Louisiana, and fully embrace the magnificent imagery of "that magic carpet made of steel".
Three-time Grammy winner Tom Chapin both reads and sings this timeless folk song. The book by Peter Spier provides the springboard for the familiar song, about a fox who forages for food in the village to bring to his family back in the den. Young listeners will delight in this exceptional new recording of the popular Caldecott Honor Book.
