Funky Monkey – original by Rich Rubietta


Rich’s first CD, Room 4U & Me received a Parents’ Choice-approved Award 🙂

Many of the songs were inspired by Stories he and Jane were reading to their three children at bedtime. You know it’s a good story, when kids ask for it over and over

Flowers are Red – a new twist on a classic participatory song, by Harry Chapin

Don’t Play With Bruno– a young boy answers rejection with surprising kindness

Funky Monkey – a song that encourages respect for self and others

Headin’ Home – a young boy runs away from home but can’t escape responsibility

Cow Says Moo – interactive rhyme song by Jesse Manibussan

Clap Your Feet – a song that eventually had to be written!  *

Let’s Eat Bugs – Learn a BIG word about how many people get their protein!

Arachnophobia – autobiographical song, with a cameo appearance from Miss Muffet!

Bear Hug –an opportunity to interact with neighbors, without actually touching them!

Glad Dance – a shuffle Jig: “I’m so glad to be alive, I’ll jump up and clap my hands.”

The World is Our Neighborhood – a ballad with an eye toward the world community

Peace Like a River – an active and inter-active version of a traditional favorite!

May You Find Sleep Tonight – A lullaby for all the children of the world

Vida Buena – a little boy discovers a different kind of “good life,” when he moves to an     actual street in Chicago named Buena Avenue.

Almost all Choruses have been translated into singable Spanish!
