Reviews for Animal Songs


“Julie Garnett has a special talent for sharing her love of song with young children. Her clever lyrics and catchy tunes inspire movement and dance, and now, counting and reading – even among the youngest in our Rhode Island PBS audience.”

~ David Piccerelli, President, Rhode Island PBS

“Animal Songs is a one-of-a-kind literacy experience that all young children will enjoy, and a must for all bookshelves! They will love singing along to the catchy tune as they learn animal names, sounds, and numbers.”

~ Margaret Knowlton, Director of School Age Programs, Meeting Street School

“I would suggest that, if you’re interested in promoting a book to children with sensory issues, try Animal Songs, by Julie Garnett”

~ Anne McLaughlin / Librarian/Head of Children’s Services / West Warwick Public Library

“Julie recently brought her “Animal Songs Book Sing’n Signing” to our Head Start program. She adapted her approach to capture the attention of our youngest (toddlers), our pre-K’s (5’s), and everyone in between.  As a teacher, I appreciated the real life experience of the author, songwriter, singer and storyteller.  Back in my classroom, several students told me “I’m going to write books”! As for the musical Book “Animal Songs… you need to witness the magic for yourself.”

~ Cynthia L. Williams / Head Start Teacher / Syracuse, NY ~

“I gave my 3 y/o grand-daughter Maggie your book this weekend, and she loved it. I lost count as to how many times we read/listened to it. She likes to push the button with your picture on it, and says “Hi Julie!” “

~Lori H. / MI ~
