“Further Around the Bend” CD from Bill Harley (**GIVEAWAY**)

Further Around the Bend

I received a copy of this CD in exchange for my honest review.

I wasn’t familiar with Bill Harley’s works, which include a former CD called “Town Around the Bend”.  This CD takes children through a town full of stories and music, unusual characters and silly stories.  A big hit with many families, “Further Around the Bend” was created as a sequel.  These are just a couple of the albums from Bill Harley, who is a GRAMMY Award winning singer/songwriter, storyteller, author and playwright — and this is his 26th album of stories and songs for families!

In 2003 Bill Harley took us on a story and song-filled tour of the Town Around the Bend, a town filled with colorful and oddly named characters who did some very unusual things. Since that recording’s release, thousands of children (and their parents) have visited and loved the Town Around the Bend, and so we’re happy to announce release of Further Around the Bend: More News from the Town Around the Bend. With stories and songs brimming with charm, humor and wisdom, this recording celebrates the best of who we are and can be and reminds young and old about the power of community.

Further Around the Bend consists of both songs and stories.  I remember as a kid having a cassette that was part story and part music, and boy did I love that cassette.  There was just something about having a story to draw you in with the addition of music too.  I think it really keeps kids attention when there is an interesting medley of things to keep them following along.

    I have never heard of this child entertainer before! HE sounds amazing! I still love listening to the children’s entertainers I listened too when I was young and share them with my kids! I’ll have to look into him!

    Further Around the Bend sounds like a great CD option for little ones. I miss the little kid days and that music, I would totally always be that mom who had toddler tunes in the van and drive around singing with the kiddos. Happy Memories! I am going to share this CD with my friends who have younger kids.

    My youngest, 2, loves anything with music — especially animations. I bet she would love Further Around The Bend.
