Peter's Music & Books
Peter's songs are used by parents and teachers to entertain, to teach, and to shine brightness into kids' days. They're used to warm up kids in gymnastics and dance studios.  They've earned coveted spots in minivan music rotations.  Discover fun facts and insights in About The Songs.  Find Music CDs and more in the Music Store.

The Fred Pinsocket Loves Bananas board book is a sturdy and colorful book that your child can hold and enjoy.  While there may be an e-book in the future, this one is intended to be held, hugged, and maybe even nibbled-on once in a while.  The book features Fred Pinsocket, the little spaceman who loves bananas, and includes a FREE download of the I Love Bananas song.
