Review + Giveaway: FLYING! - Recess Monkey

Recess Monkey, the Seattle based kindie pop band made up of teachers is at it again with their latest studio release FLYING!

From the opening line of Flying ~ "News Flash! In anytown America, a young child is embarking on a miraculous transformation.  Watch and see as their powers multiply!" ~ this is an altogether addicting album filled with songs about bravery, super powers, and doing the right thing.

Here at LIAYF, we have been listening to this album in rotation for a couple of weeks straight now, and I must say that it is easily Lukas' favorite musical disc.  Of course, given his recent love of all things Superhero, that is not really surprising.

This album is out now, so if you are looking for some great kid themed music that you, as the parent, won't easily tire of, FLYING! is a terrific choice.

I am also giving away a copy of FLYING! to one lucky reader from the US or Canada.  Just leave a comment here, by July 15th to be entered.  You can also earn an extra entry by subscribing to LIAYF review, or by tweeting this contest.  Just be sure to let me know in the comments, and if tweeting mention @Seattledad.

Yes, I was furnished a free copy of FLYING! to review.  That doesn't make Lukas like it any more than he already does.
