Remember those fabulous family holidays at the beach or at the caravan park by the sea? Fish and chips, endless swimming, surfing, beachcombing - and of course, the flies and mozzies?
That whole distinctively Australian beach holiday experience has been captured on an exciting new CD, Angela and Pennys Holiday, thanks to Play School personality Angela Moore and Play school pianist, Penny Biggins, both members of the famous Castanet Club.
For the past couple of years, Angela and Penny have been presenting Angela and Pennys Holiday to school groups, in theatres, at festivals and family fun days.
Angela and Pennys Holiday is a terrific way to introduce your kids to an extensive range of musical genres. Dance the calypso to Holiday, go-go to the 60s pop inspired Hoola Hoop or snap your fingers to the playground chant Silly by the Sea.
Much of the magic of the CD, just released by ABC Kids, lies in the fact that the songs are catchy and full of irreverent humour. This reflects Angela and Pennys knowledge of what kids relate to and what kids enjoy. One of their favourite jokes is - how do you make a hanky dance? Put a little boogie in it! Angela and Pennys Holiday is a breath of fresh air in a world where plugging in and blocking out reality are becoming the new holiday experience. This album will take parents on a trip down memory lane, and encourage kids to put away the computer games. For a week at least!
Every aspect of a carefree family summer holiday is captured on Angela and Pennys Holiday in a warm, friendly, funny way, and the album will make children everywhere beg their parents to hook up an old caravan and head for the coast.
