"The first of the nine rollicking dinosaur songs
featured in this collection captures listeners' attention right away
with the jaunty '69 Million Years'. This fast-paced tune places
the dinosaurs in a time 'Back before McDonald's, back before TV, back
before rock music, and Newsweek magazine.' It sets
the stage for songs about 'big monsters' as the T-Rex, stegosaurus,
triceratops, ankylosaur, and the archaeopteryx. The songs are
filled with intelligent lyrics that accurately portray the lives of
dinosaurs. In 'Who Shall I Eat Next,' Mr. T-Rex has eaten
most of his relatives and is trying to figure out who will be his next
meal. Even a trip to the dietician hasn't helped cure his
voracious appetite. In 'Triceratops,' the normally peaceful
dinosaur defeats the mighty T-Rex rather than become his dinner.
Interspersed with the facts are just plain fun-filled songs like
'Prehistoric Porch Sale,' and the play on words
'Thesaurus Thesaurus.' A good edition to early
elementary school collections."

"Fun facts abound on '9 Dinosaur Songs' by the
Bergman Broom Haywire Ensemble, a compilation of jaunty folk-flavored
tunes about the ever popular prehistoric beasts. Listeners get a
sense of how long ago dinosaurs walked the earth in '69 Million Years'
and learn about the tyrant tendencies of 'That ugly, little three-horned
beast' on the song 'Triceratops.' Other tidbits about various
dinosaurs' appearance and behavior are also woven into the
