Well, the video is a little hokey, and the band a little odd, but this is one of my preschool students’ favorite songs. We sing it a lot! The Banana Slug String Band‘s songs are filled with messages of conservation and connectedness to nature, like “Dirt Made My Lunch”.
The Banana Slug String Band is committed to educational entertainment for children and families through interactive music and performance. We are dedicated to fostering positive attitudes about the environment, providing accurate information about natural history and science, promoting music appreciation, building self esteem in children, honoring creativity, supporting the arts in education and sparking in people a joyful sense of wonder. Through the production of tapes, CD’s, videos, songbooks, picture books, curriculum, activity guides, teacher workshops and concerts, we hope to make these values accessible to an increasingly wider audience. We endorse and support collaboration with other individuals and organizations that promote the well being of children, family and the environment. We believe that music is a powerful instrument for honoring diversity while uniting people for the common good.
Banana Slug String Band even performs at schools!
