UPDATE: The giveaway winner is comment #15, Brocha. Thanks to all who entered!
Have you heard of Roger Day? He’s a children’s musician who has educational songs that make children laugh, and who I’ve always thought sounds just like Jimmy Buffet. He has a new concert DVD out called Marsh Mud Madness, and it’s a combination of a live concert and an ecological tour of a salt water marsh. My children loved this DVD and have been singing the songs – especially “Mosquito Burrito” – constantly. My daughter’s first grade teacher is also a fan. I volunteered in her class last week and during a break she was playing Roger Day’s music for her students.
Here are a few clips to give you a feel for Marsh Mud Madness:
Here’s the official description of the DVD:
One of the nation’s top touring family artists, Roger Day has a knack for creating songs that make complex ideas simple and fun. In this full-length DVD – filmed live at the Savannah Music Festival and on location at the University of Georgia Marine Institute on Sapelo Island – Roger introduces children to the plants and animals that live in and around the salt water marshes and beaches of barrier islands and how each one has an important role to play in a healthy coastal ecosystem. Even sneaky ghost crabs and regurgitating vultures!
There are also FREE grade-specific study guides available for teachers and parents here.
Roger is a Birmingham native (like myself!) and spends a great deal of time on the road, touring throughout the Southeast. If you have a chance to see one of his live performances, make sure you don’t miss it! You can find more of his touring schedule on the Roger Day Facebook page.
