Apparently Justin Roberts is another popular purveyor of children's songs, but I'd sure never heard of him!

This is a peppy, smart album with a fun sound and intelligent lyrics that kids and adults will both enjoy.  My favorite song on the album is More Than Just a Minute.  How often do our "just a minutes" really last more than a minute!

My Brother Did It reminds me of this.

And the title track on the album, Meltdown, has a line that takes me back to my school days - "I'd stop the world and meltdown with you" - can you name the band this points to?  I just love it when I discover references like that!


  • In the spirit of Cartwheels & Sommersaults, go outside and tumble around for some fun physical activity.  See how many of each you can do in a row before getting dizzy.
  • Write your own story about an Imaginary Rhino.  Think of clever ways to illustrate it - how do you "show" the rhino, without really showing it?
  • After listening to Get Me Some Glasses, go make your own!  Picklebums has these cute printables for personalizing your own pair.  Or, dress up like Superman in honor of a clever line in the song:

Like I said, Justin Roberts is another artist with about a zillion CDs of children's songs.  Here are a few for you to check out:

So, did you figure out the group that line was referencing?  Let me know and if you get it right, you might win the imaginary rhino award!  Justin has other clever lines in his children's songs, which have you discovered?  I'd love to hear - leave a comment or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.
