On his fourth album, Tom Knight presents 13 original songs in an assortment of musical styles, including ragtime/boogie, swing, 60’s style rock, R&B, Western Swing, jazz, and folk-style lullabies. His deep, mellow voice is accompanied by a children’s chorus and a variety of beautifully played instruments such as acoustic guitar, fiddle, tambourine, dancing shoes, marimba, keyboard, tenor sax, trumpet, trombone, cello, violin, and banjo. In the title song, all the library books dance the “Library Boogie” at night. Goldilocks and the Three Bears make an appearance in “Just Right.” Sally tames a mean, destructive dragon in “Sally and the Dragon.” “Two Moms” discusses different kinds of families. “Bally Roo” and “The Elephant’s Lullaby” are both lullabies. Vegetables are extolled in “Rabbit Habit.” “Honeybee” gives basic information about bees… Knight’s excellent album will be a welcome addition to any library’s music collection. – School Library Journal Running time - 49:03 Track List: •The Library Boogie • Just Right • Sally and the Dragon • Two Moms • Rabbit Habit • Bally Roo • The Elephant's Lullaby • The Solar System • Honeybee • Invisible Girl • The Library Song • Little Squirrel Came Home • On the Way Home

Tom Knight has spent several years making music in the classroom with students, and his experience makes this title a worthy purchase. Using a variety of musical styles, Knight invites listeners to interact, either vocally or through dance and movement, in almost every song on this recording. The lyrics are affirming, empowering, and kid-friendly. His multi-lingual "Peace in Twelve Languages" is not only educational, it's thought-provoking. The calypso heat of "Everybody Makes Mistakes" blends with its lighthearted words, reminding children that "sometimes it happens, you mess up what you do, and then accidentally, you create something new." Knight provides the vocals, occasionally accompanied by a chorus of children or female harmony. Of the 15 songs, most are curriculum related, including songs about an earthquake, water, and creating blues music. A solid purchase for classroom use as well as general listening. - School Library Journal Total Running Time: 53:30 Track List: Wiggle Worm • Everyone's An Artist • Welcome to Our Classroom • In Our Band • Have You Seen My Egg? • Climb That Beanstalk • I Love the Dark • Introduction to the Blues • Shake Shake Shake (The Earthquake Song) • Adventures of a Water Drop • The Birthday Waltz • Rockabilly Goats Gruff • Peace in Twelve Languages • Everybody Makes Mistakes • Spin Spider Spin

Easy as Pie is a lively introduction to a wide variety of musical styles for younger listeners and their families. Tom Knight gets help from his many “friends” including the Lowdown Alligator Jass Band and a wonderful kids chorus. He explores such abstract ideas as purple pumpkins in “Purple Pumpkin Pie,” and the old swimmin’ hole in “Jenning’s Pond”; and the trials of owning a dog in “Walkin’ the Dog.” His voice is clear and distinct and the lyrics are enjoyable. It is obvious that all involved enjoyed themselves while creating and producing this cassette. Great fun for young listeners individually. Easy as Pie would be a good purchase for public library children’s rooms. – Library Journal Running Time 48:32 Track List: • Purple Pumpkin Pie • Pancakes • In the Moo • Young Buckaroo • Habitat • Tiger Island • Sing From Your Heart • Alligator Jump • Jenning's Pond • Rise and Shine • The Song About Trains • Walkin' the Dog • Monkey Monkey Monkey • Three Little Monkeys • Mary-Go-Round • Fog • The Sandman
