ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Just Plain Folks 2004 Male Artist of the Year

Just Plain Folks 2000 Best Children's Album

Best of 2001, Chicago Parent
"Morgan raises the bar for active listening with his wonderful wordplay and positive messages."

Best of 2002, Cincinnati CityBeat
"The musician's lyrics are innocent and sophisticated, all in the same universe."

#1 Kids' CD, 2002, Paste Magazine
"A wonderful children's CD, richly endowed with clever wordplay and vivid detail...The exceptional poetry of Bloom is further buoyed by the talented musicianship."

"a possible successor to [Shel] Silverstein...these songs/poems will delight and inspire any listener."
--KLIATT, STARRED REVIEW

"His sophisticated story-songs contain a good amount of wordplay that adult listeners will particularly appreciate...Morgan's rich, sonorous voice is at home both singing and spinning yarns."
--Publishers Weekly

"A brilliant and witty work that will challenge and fascinate kids of all ages."
--Just Plain Folks

"Morgan's splendid imagination is reminiscent of Shel Silverstein's sly and edgy style."
--Cincinnati Post

"Zak Morgan's CD never talks down to kids and never fails to deliver positive messages about the sometimes hard realities of growing up." --Cincinnati Enquirer

"The lyrics and music are a treat."
--School Library Journal


Cross Dr. Seuss with Shel Silverstein, toss in a smidgen of a grade school educator, a G-rated stand-up comic and a folk musician, and you'll arrive at Zak Morgan, children's artist. The nationally sought after entertainer performs hundreds of concerts each year at auditoriums, festivals, and theatres.

Zak Morgan's eagerly anticipated second CD, When Bullfrogs Croak, was released in June, 2003 and has been nominated for a Grammy!

A Family Favorite
From the moment the first song began I knew we'd love it! This is my 4 year-old son's cd of choice every time we get in the minivan. His favorites include "The Spider's Web," "Ohio Halloween, and "I Hide My Muscles Well." Mom's favorites are "The Butterfly," and "Hungry Things." Even our 20 month-old has one that always stops her tears, "Dream Song." It's rare to find something the whole family can enjoy, and there's not a miss on the whole cd.

I found myself tapping my toes and then I found myself playing it again. And again. The Butterly was a great song lesson but the Story about Santa (as told by Blitzen) had me rolling on the floor (Well not really but you get the idea.)Kids will love the music. Highly recommended for all ages up to about 112.

Lucky children!
There is something very special about people who create music for children. There is something very very special about someone who can bring out the child within too! The music has a very magical feel to it - some songs are jumpy and happy and others make you want to lay back and dream.(I found out a few things about bugs and stuff too!) Production is excellent and Zak's vocals pull you right in! I have a big family with lots of little ones. Soon, they will all know who Zak Morgan is!

fun, endearing and heartwarming
The CD arrived within a day or two of my order and I tore it open and popped it into the CD player in the car! What an amazing sound. Thank you!

Great music, fun lyrics!
The lyrics are completely amusing! I was lucky enough to hear Zak play at Kenyon College--I loved his music then, and now, as a mom, love his "children's" music! I Hide My Muscles Well is my favorite.
