"I love it! It looks like a picture book coming to life!"

Absolutely Mindy from Kids Place Live on SiriusXM

 
  From Bill:  
 

I am absolutely delighted to let you know about our newest music video "A Walk Around the Block", which you can view above. "Walk" has been a big hit on Sirius/Xm KidsPlace LIve for the past couple of years (so popular it was voted off the air for a week by moms who were sick of hearing!). Now, with the help of a wonderful animation artist from New Zealand (Laura Dowling), the song take on a whole new meaning. The process has been long and painstaking; every time Laura has come up with a segment, Debbie, Michele and I have stopped everything we're doing to look at it. Now you get to see it, too. I absolutely love this, and hope you do, too. Thanks to Laura and my friend Kim Weitkamp at TreeHouse Artists who made the connection for us.

 

 

From Laura:

When I first heard "A Walk Around the Block" I was so excited to be making a video for it! Bill's lyrics took me on quite the adventure and I wanted to make sure the visuals captured the limitless imagination of the little boy. "A Walk Around The Block" was probably the most fun I've ever had making a video. I was kinda sad when I reached the end of the song, I miss that little kid and seeing where he'll go next!

Or
