Reviews - What do customers think about Crazy Gibberish: And Other Story Hour Stretches?
Wonderful Idea for Schools and libraries and daycare that have storytime hours! Apr 30, 2008
From the Her Website ... an enthusiastic collection of songs and stretches, short rhymes, calls and response, and other program fillers that young listeners will soon be happily chanting along with. ...A boon for beginning storytellers or storytime givers...contains examples of successful material to use with youngsters in a programming setting, whether in the public library, media center, or park district. Baltuck does an expert job of communicating her enthusiasm for her work, and the kids who contribute as singers and participators are clearly having a great time. Even if you already have Baltuck's print version of Crazy Gibberish in your collection, this cassette is not superfluous. It will contribute a bunch of crowd-pleasing songs and stretches to your repertoire, and it is certain to become a favorite among young listeners. - Storytelling Review

This book and the cassette of the same title are wonderfully entertaining for children of all ages. The author combines music and stories to capture your attention. My kids request this over and over and can sing along and tell the stories as we hear them on the cassette. We found these available at our local library and it would be well worth having our own copy. Enjoy!!
