When I first heard The Harmonica Pocket I must have been in a bad mood. Oh joy, another downbeat collection of songs about nature, the sun and rain. Break out the patchouli oil kids. I listened to the entire CD in the car with the kids and thought nothing of it until they chimed in from the back seat that they wanted to hear it again. “You want to hear it again?”, I asked. Yes, yes they did and they continued to love this release, specifically songs 1-9. As Sundrops has 12 songs on it that’s a very good hit ratio for a pair of discriminating children.
Don’t judge a book or CD by the first couple of chords. Sundrops by The Harmonica Pocket is fun, lively and something that kids (and I) like.
New comic book day is every Wednesday and this week there are some really nice all age comics in the mix this week. These are the comics that are appropriate for young readers and don’t have any mature or adult themes. This week have included Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These comics have lots of action, but are OK for any age reader. Obviously you don’t want your child to mimic any of the ninja moves, so just be aware that all of these comics aren’t kittens and butterflies-and that’s a good thing.
This week we’re really pumped about the new Sonic Universe as it kicks off the Mega Man crossover event this summer. Garfield, Batman, Spider-Man, Adventure Time and Bart Simpson also make an appearance in their new comics this week.
The links will take you to TFAW (Things From Another World) where you’ll save at least 10% on comics. If you want to get them the day that they come out then follow this link to find the comic book shop closest to you.
New all age comics! Batman meet Solomun Grundy, G.I. Joe, Archie, Bart and many more for any young reader out there.
