[When Bullfrogs Croak] sparkles with witty lyrics and sonorous, inviting vocals...Morgan once again demonstrates a pleasing versatility.
-- Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

A must have children's record.
--Knight Ridder News Services

Heading a host of top-notch musicians, Morgan vividly shapes each song, including kindred spirit Shel Silverstein's "Unicorn" and Cat Stevens' "Peace Train," with his warm, folk vocals.
--LA Times

With its catchy lyrics and singable tunes, singer-songwriter Zak Morgan's second CD is a hit. Morgan seems to be having fun while he performs, and listeners will do the same...This not-to-be-missed title will be appreciated by children and adults who work with them.
-- School Library Journal, Audio of the Week, 10/13/03

Morgan's trademark wordplay hops right out at you...fine writing and musical language and rhythmic rhyming...well worth the wait and will be enjoyed for years to come.
-- Chicago Parent

The music is intelligent, stylish and sweet, satisfying both short attention spans and mature tastes...The writing and arranging are at once both playful and majestic...Such attention to artistic and musical detail is what elevates this disc from must-have to heirloom status, suitable for kids of all ages.

Morgan's real genius is he sings songs instantly relatable to both kids and adults.
--Cincinnati Post

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 2004 GRAMMY Award. Also appearing on the recording are some of the most respected songwriters in the United States, including David Wilcox, Victoria Williams, and Robbie Fulks.

Great music while educating my children!!
My children love the music. Then I noticed they are stating facts they learned from listening to the songs. My older son (7 yrs) has even taken the ideas one step further. He wishes there was a peace train that could go from country to coutry spreading the pieace. He also noted that in the insect world maybe being a boy was nicer than being a girl (referring especially to the mosquito)!


Bloom/Bullfrogs Croak
Just Like a Long Lost Friend!
Wonderful lyrics and catchy tunes that please all ages. My kids (2 1/2, 4 1/2) love these songs and have confiscated the CDs to their bedrooms, but both my husband and I find ourselves singing the tunes.

Chuck's Mom

--lyrics only equaled by the superb illustrations and glossary !
Today's child is lucky to have Zak's music with grownup lyrics. His delightful tunes are equaled only by the superb cover by C.F. Payne and inside illustrations by Chuck Rekow. Congratulations to all of you !


Great for all ages!
I absolutely LOVE this CD. I listed to the cuts of it on his webpage until I received it in the mail. My son is only 11 months so he obviously doesn't understand the songs. However, he enjoys the Cribling song which has little childrens voices in the couris and he loves the fact that I sing and dance with the music....of course, even my husband finds that funny!

I'm 13 and still love zak morgans work , he's so great he even came to my school and helped my class write a song and make a school CD. He's sooo cool!!!


five stars CD
I like when you sing the chicken song and when the bullfrog croaks!


I secretly listen to the CD while my kids are at school!
The CD is terrific. My 7 year old heard Zak perform some of the songs at school - and she had to have it. Now her Autographed copies of Bullfrogs and Bloom are among her most prized possessions. I listen to Bullfrogs on her CD player while she's at school and I love it too!

Beth Sweeney

I'm a nanny of two..and listen to childrens music all day long..but I have to say I get most excited when the kids request Zaks Songs...!!! WE LOVE THE CD..GREAT WORK ZAK !

Now I need some kids!
I haven't run into Zak since high school when we performed in music festivals together, and I have to give it up for some fabulous work here. Funny, upbeat, and from one musician to another, there is some fabulous fabulous playing on this disc. Get this CD for Zak's version of Peace Train alone! Pox of Chicken is hilarious and the jazz guitar on it is a gas.

Kudos Zak!

Brilliant! My son has been obsessed with Zak for years. This CD is great! My 7 year old has had all the words memorized for a long time. I have been found listening to it when Logan is at school. We love "Bloom" and "When Bullfrogs Croak is even better". We can't wait for the next one!
