ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Joshua Sitron has written music for Nickelodeon, Disney, and the Girl Scouts of America, including the hit TV show "Dora the Explorer". When not writing music for children, he is acting like a child, on stage, with various improv comedy and theater groups around NYC. "FunkeyMonkeys!" is his first independent children's album.

"After doing all of this children's TV work, I wanted to have some freedom from producers and executives, who are often motivated by corporate interests. "Dora" has made me some money, but "FunkeyMonkeys!" came from the heart, with the intention of spreading joy and fun. It seems that 2-year olds, and 55-year olds are equally delighted with the results"

The reviews are in:

"This has to be one of the best CDs for kids that I know of. My 2.3-year-old can sing almost all the songs in the CD now. I also gave this CD as gifts for his little friends and his preschool class. Everyone loved it."
-A Music Fan from Stanford, CA

"After teaching pre-school aged children for several years and being saturated with enough Raffi-like nursery rhymes to choke a 4 year-old, I was more than appreciative to hear the innovative and funk-da-fied monkeys. Moms and Dads will no longer roll their eyes and sigh in exasperation when their children demand to hear their music. The whole family will derive enjoyment from his cd. My class and myself alike love groovin' to the beat of the 70's inspired "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and the soulful "Hush Little Baby", and take a breather while listening to the peaceful "Morning has Broken". Overall, an inventive composer, a group of enthusiastic children, and a creative lead vocalist have collaborated their talent to produce an album that is a perfect balance of funk and fun."
-Eileen from KHTN--NY, NY

"I babysit for a 5 year old girl, who is madly in love with this CD. She asks me to put it on everyday. She loves to dance to it and sing along. It is truly funkey and fun for both adults and children!!! I love it!!!"
-Karen Stein from New York, New York

"Its the one thing that [my 3-year old daughter] can ask for that her mother and I are happy to share with her, again and again." -Steve from Long Island, NY

"My two year old daughter absolutely loved it. Nice change for her from the traditional nursery rhyme type music to a more rhythmic mix. She would most often choose FunkeyMonkeys! over others and insist that her friends dance to it ! -D BHATTACHARYA from USA

"An awesome cd. My son loves it very much." -Seth A. Jonas from New York, NY United States

great cd for young children
this cd is excellent! i'm a musician and also a teacher of a pre-k class. i have been looking for this type of cd to help better engage my students during music time. this is definitely the ticket!! although i love playing my guitar and singing songs, like "she'll be comin' round the mountain", for my students how can i compare with the funkey monkey cd? ;)

great stuff!!

beyond fun
i bought this cd as a gift for my 3-year-old niece. this cd is so beyond fun! i am 26-years-old and i love it. i love that my niece will be able to learn some of my childhood favorites but set to a funky groove. she will be dancing until there is no tomorrow...that is, if i can let go of it long enough to give it to her..

My kids love Funky Monkey!!
I teach preschool and my kids love this CD. I highly recommend it for anyone with young children. I can easily listen to it several times in a row & it doesn't get on my nerves like some other children's music. That's important because young kids love repetition!

funky monkeys

awesome
My two year old bee-bops around in his car seat when I play this CD. It is a great alternative to the standard toddler songs we listen to. Fun for the adults listening too. I highly recommend it to all parents.
