Time to cut loose! Have a rockin' time introducing children to the fun of Footloose, rewritten for children by the one and only Kenny Loggins. As a zookeeper named Jack joins the zoo animals in an all-night dance party, this new original story from Loggins is sure to get your feet moving. Little ones will love the cast of characters, including the rockin' chimp Louise ("Geez, Louise"), Mister DJ Elephant, the lemur Marie ("Oo Wee, Marie"), Milo the wombat, Luke the funkiest cat in the zoo, and so many more rocking, bopping, boogeying, tangoing, shaking, rattling and rolling animals!

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. "


Review: After finding out I was pregnant (and now being a first time mom), my latest obsession are picture books. I love them. They're fun and a great way to introduce younglings to the wonderful world of books. When asked if I wanted to review Footloose, I jumped at the opportunity. Not only did it look adorable, I happen to know and adore the song and movie. This book offers everything you think it would and so much more.

First off, the illustrations are wonderful. They remind me of those fun cartoons I used to watch as a kid and not the digitized ones we've grown so accustomed to. They flow well with the story and are simply fun to look at.

Reading (and singing) the book to my daughter was a real blessing. When she was only a month old, I read this to her, and she basically just looked back at me in awe. Really, I wasn't expecting any sort of response, and that's just the way she looked at everything way back when. Now that she's three months, she smiles when she hears music and focuses more on the pictures. She loves it when I play the CD to go with the book, and if I point to the words, she'll look at the page. As she gets older, I know this will be a book she'll love and ask me to read to her over and over again.

Overall, I truly adored this novel and recommend it to parents, educators, and book lovers alike.

5 Stars

  1. I first had to dance to FOOTLOOSE with my full term baby bump. LOL! I love it when popular songs are turned into children's books. I also recommend OCTOPUS' GARDEN by Ringo Starr. This book sounds so fun and I can see from the cover what you're saying about the illustrations. I love the colors used, too! I'll definitely have to add this to my little one's library!

    1. HOW EDWARD LOAN COMPANY GRANTED ME A BUSINESS LOAN {Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com} or Text +1(307) 241-3712

      Hello everyone, I am Oliver Johnson Moore from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to EDWARD JONES for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 28hrs just like my friend Lisa, i was also granted a loan of $387,000.00; So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on {Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com} or Text +1(307) 241-3712

  4. TRUSTED LENDER (LEXIELOANCOMPANY@YAHOO.COM)
    My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest suprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan.
