Lulu and the TomCat: Fossil Rock. CD.
   Award-winning Canadian duo Lulu and the Tom Cat present 14 original,
lively songs on their fourth album for children. While several of the songs are in
rock and roll style, complete with wailing guitars, there are also a couple of folk
and Latin style tunes. Topics of the songs include dinosaurs, fossils, and lake monsters.
The album opens with "Fossil Rock," a lively, rocking dinosaur dance and closes with
"Hush Baby Pterosaur" (to the tune of "Hush Little Baby"). A couple of songs celebrate
Canadian attractions: "Pembina Diamond Mine" and "Go, Go Manipogo" (a marine creature
in Lake Manitoba). The instrumental performances are wonderful. Vocal performances
are also topnotch, including The Kiddens, four girls who join in on several tracks. A great
resource for dinosaur story times and classroom activities, and a treat for
young dinosaur fans.

Fossil Rock CD cover 

The CD "Fossil Rock" is interactive, interesting,
educational, inspiring, thought provoking,
and encourages "FOSSIL FUN."

The songs are about Mesozoic and Cretaceous
dinosaurs, flying reptiles and marine reptiles.
Most of these creatures were "rockin'" in the
area of the Western Interior Seaway
and its shores!

5.The Fossil Alphabet (2:59) : Sing about fossils from A - Z! The 26 fossils
in this song teach fun facts in rhyme.

swimmer of all time! This descriptive action song helps younger children
to identify with plesiosaurs and marine reptiles.

The Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre has unearthed many important finds of

side in the CFDC.

are in the lyrics and the challenge is to get faster and faster!

rock you to sleep with flying dinosaur dreams.


Winnipeg Free Press Review of Fossil Rock:
 "... it's called Fossil Rock. And no, it's not by The Rolling Stones. You might, however, recognize the name of the award-winning Manitoba band that created it - LuLu and the TomCat. I was pleasantly surprised. This children's CD doesn't insult adult ears... I should excuse myself from giving an in-depth description. I gave that responsibility to a panel of experts, my 10-and-a-half-year-old twins. According to them, they felt it was a "good, catchy" CD. They preferred the "fast songs," which incorporated zippy lyrics about dinosaurs... At times, my kids spontaneously danced to the tunes... the CD's worth it."        Winnipeg Free Press, Oct. 4, 2008, Charlene Adam.
