Kenny Loggins #Footloose – Book Review
I received a copy of “Footloose” ($17.95 value) in exchange for this promotion. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.”
Who doesn’t remember the movie “Footloose” back in the 80’s? I think everyone does and I remember it vividly being played at one of my Aunt’s weddings and my fun, crazy relatives were dancing on the tables to it. If that doesn’t vouch for a catchy tune, I don’t know what does. Well, that same fun and craziness is now in book form by Kenny Loggins himself. He has re-wrote and re-recorded the original Footloose song with lyrics about an animal dance party at the zoo. Now that Loggins is a grandpa, he’s has been working on some new songs for kids, parents and grandparents.
This large colorful picture book for ages 4-7 (grades pre-1st) is full of fun and the illustrations are just superb. To add to the fun, the book includes a CD with new recordings by Kenny Loggins. Kids and parents can sing along to the classic hit with new lyrics, as well as a three-song medley families will love.
Footloose can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and anywhere children’s books are sold! Get your copy today!
