School Library Journal – Review

The Teddy Bear Band Show. DVD. approx. 50 min. Bear-Traq Recordings. 2009. #TBB55423. $15 (+ s/h).

PreS-Gr 2—This rousing outdoor family concert in Forest Lake, MN, features a group called Teddy Bear Band—Richard Erickson, Don Paulson, Ros Gustafson, and Scott Bolin—who have great rapport with their audience from 24 years of experience in performing for young and old. Children are encouraged to dance, cavort, balance, throw teddy bears in the air, wiggle, and perform many other participatory actions to these 16 songs. A person dressed in a panda costume interacts with the youngsters in the audience. The award-winning band performs equally well in rock, bluegrass, folk, and calypso musical styles while playing on guitars and keyboards. “Clap and Stop,” “Land and Sea,” “Teddy Bears Balancing,” “Rockabye,” and “Hokey Pokey,” are all based on traditional songs. The original compositions include “Wanna Have Fun,” “Teddy Bear Twist,” “Teddy Bear Turn Around,” “Washboard Boogie,” “Down at the Beach “Playin’ Guitar,” “Bear in the Air,” and others. Bonus features include “For Parents & Teachers,” and “Picture Show” (photos from concerts with a song in the background). Parents and children will enjoy singing along with and moving to these fun, bouncy tunes.—Beverly Bixler, San Antonio Public Library, TX
