SteveSongs Orangutan Van Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Straight from PBS Kids, award-winning kids' musician "Mr.Steve" aka SteveSongs is set to release his eighth CD, Orangutan Van on January 29th.
Already known and loved by millions of families throughout the country with his shows on PBS Kids, "Mr.Steve" has a way about creating great melodies, catchy lyrics, and playful humor, all wrapped up into outstanding musical journeys for young and old.  Your family will have a blast being entertained and educated through SteveSongs music.
My kids and I got to preview a copy of the new Orangutan Van CD.  The album is full of tons of great fun songs. They cover a wide spectrum of fun topics and are super fun to dance and sing a long with.  Definitely kid-friendly, the album truly captures Steve's energetic and fun-loving spirit.  He truly is a kid-at-heart and his music shows that!  I love that his songs contain the perfect mixture of playfulness and educational value.
Steve explains, "Laughter is important, and a lot of the songs on Orangutan Van are really fun. There's a subtraction song about Dan, Stan, flanana flavored flan and an 11-seat orangutan van, and Silly Vanilli (from my album Marvelous Day) is back to explain why 'A is for Silly.' But as hilarious as many of these songs are, they're imbued with lessons that I hope will resonate with kids, reinforcing similar messages that they hear from parents, teachers, or mentors."
The album includes songs about anything from brushing your teeth to learning about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and even about leaning to read.  So many great songs and great fun to be had with this album!

Since May 2008, Steve Roslonek, as "Mr. Steve," has co-hosted the PBS KIDS preschool destination that features the popular shows Curious George, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That, Dinosaur Train, Super WHY! and Martha Speaks. Steve regularly makes appearances nationwide at PBS station events, and, along with other notable PBS KIDS characters, such as Hooper, he is a featured visitor at libraries across the country, encouraging kids to read through the JetBlue and PBS KIDS collaborative "Soar with Reading" program.

A big THANK YOU to SteveSongs for providing me with a free Orangutan CD to review.  I was not compensated for this review. I receive product(s) for free so that I can provide my insight and experience. These are my honest opinions. Your experience may vary.


  1. I played clips from some of the c.d.'s and my sons seemed to like the On A Flying Guitar c.d.

  2. I love the catchy tunes and how much fun the kids look like they're having. Between now and March, Steve has 7 stops on his tour...all the rest are out East.
