In today's educational landscape, it has become more and more important to give our children the head start they need to be better prepared when entering elementary school. Did you know that by the time a child reaches the age of five, 85% of his or her brain development is complete? However, 95% of public investment happens after age five.
After seeing Silly Bus perform an amazing live show to an audience of engaged and energized youngsters and adults alike, my best friend and I decided to buy copies of this CD (and the original Silly Bus release). The next day she called me with her two preschool-age neices in tow, and before she could say a word I heard them singing along to "Outstanding Owls" in the background. She asked who they were listening to and they immediately shouted "Silly Bus! Silly Bus!" Obviously an instant hit; they couldn't get enough! Creative and educational lyrics are paired with outstanding musicianship and real talent - a refreshing change in the children's music arena. I would definitely recommend this CD to kids of all ages, and will be among the first in line to snag the next Silly Bus release!

We used the Silly Bus CD as a party favor for my daughter's 5 year birthday party. Her friends love it! The moms at her preschool stop me regularly to tell me how much the kids are enjoying it.

Sillybus rocks! The band exhibits a genuine love for children and their exuberance shines through in their writing and performance. Consistent and entertaining, the music on this CD is high-energy. With great pop sounds, infectious rock rhythms and strong vocals all supporting catchy, highly educating story-songs, their original lyrics invite movement and response. This is good stuff. Really!
