“I want to be your personal penguin”

October 20, 2009

in random

Both of my boys grew up with Sandra Boynton’s books.  My oldest especially grew up on the fiber provided by chewing on the board books.  His favorite at that age?  Blue Hat, Green Hat.

Blue Hat Green Hat

Ms. Boynton later started turning her delightful books into sing-along songs.  And soon famous people started joining in to compose music and/or even perform them.  Kevin Bacon (The Bacon Brothers). Meryl Streep.  Kevin Kline. Hootie and the Blowfish.

Our current favorite?  One that lightens up your steps and brings out smiles…

Personal Penguin

Like a perfect cherry on top of a perfectly assembled sundae, it is sung by none other than Davy Jones of The Monkees

“I want to be your personal penguin.”

Wouldn’t it be nice if all of us could find someone in life that makes you feel like singing this song to them?

I got this song stuck in my head yesterday and today. I am reaping what I sow I guess…

Sandra Boynton is a favorite here, as well. In fact my daugther loved “Moo, Baa, La, La, La” so much I still have it memorized 15 years later! Moo, says the cow. A sheep says Baa. Three singing pigs sing La, La, La. Ok – nope. I’m not going to bore you. I’m sure you know it pretty well, too!
