Special 20th Anniversary Edition with 2 BONUS Songs!
Jim Gill Sings The Sneezing Song and Other Contagious Tunes was originally released in 1993… on LP record! The recording earned Jim numerous honors, including his first of five awards from the American Library Association, and has propelled him to spread music play to families far and wide ever since!
The 20th Anniversary Edition contains all 15 original tracks, digitally remastered for enhanced sound quality, as well as two brand new “bonus tracks.” In total, 17 different songs that invite children and the adults that care for them to clap, sing, dance and sneeze together.

Folks have been ordering items as gifts for the holidays......and I am always honored when my music and books are shared in this way! We make a point to be EXTRA QUICK to process each order and to ship it off during this season. And remember.......I sign each book that is ordered directly on my website. If you'd like a copy of A Soup Opera or May There Always Be Sunshine signed with a personal message, leave me the details in the comment section when you order.
NAEYC: I had a wonderful time at the NAEYC Conference in Washington DC last month. The room was FILLED for my session and I was honored to find out how many teachers, care providers and librarians sing my songs with the children and families they work with on a daily basis! I even met 3 teachers from Costa Rica that sing my songs regularly with the children they care for in San Jose!
Upcoming appearances: I'll be at the LEGENDARY Val's Halla Records in Oak Park, IL on Saturday, December 7th at 11 am. Details can be found by clicking the "Tour Dates" link above.
"Alabama, Mississippi" concert video: I've posted a video clip that contains some great footage of families singing and playing (and shaking) together at one of my concerts.....with special accompaniment by my friend Don Stille playing the accordion. I think it conveys the unique "family room" approach that I bring to each concert.
Words on Play
An Opportunity Missed....An Opportunity Taken
Some memories stick with you.
My wife and I were traveling and stopped into a pizza restaurant for dinner. As we entered we saw a dad and his daughter, maybe 4 years old, sitting at opposite sides of a booth. Because both were leaning over the table, their heads were pretty close together. They looked as though they might be whispering secrets or telling each other jokes. Who knew? But it was a dad and his daughter obviously sharing a special time together. My wife turned to me and said, "This reminds me of you on one of your daddy-daughter nights."
It was only as we walked past them to our own table that we saw the full picture. The dad and his daughter were both leaning over the table they shared......and each was intimately involved with a personal digital device. The father was typing on his ipad and the daughter was watching a movie on her portable dvd player.
I suppose it’s the missed opportunity that I remember.
