Some of the trying-to-be-cool moments miss the mark—see the aforementioned deejay, as well as “Luke, too cute, funkiest cat at the zoo” in his backward cap, leather jacket, sunglasses, and gold chain—but the revised lyrics offer a fun way for parents and grandparents to “cut footloose” with a new generation.

Kenny Loggins' remarkable career spans four decades and has brought him from the top of the charts to the Grammys. He's had smash hits on Hollywood's favorite soundtracks, rocked worldwide stages, and found his way into children's hearts while bringing his soulful, beautiful voice to platinum albums in a stunning variety of genres. His gift for crafting deeply emotional music is unparalleled, and it's been a part of his life as long as he can remember. Although Loggins has 12 platinum albums, a pair of Grammys, and hits on almost all the Billboard charts under his belt, he's far from done. With more Blue Sky Riders (his newest project) tunes in the works, he's still looking forward to what's next. "I've been lucky that I love what I do and I get to keep doing it," he says. Loggins has a newsletter and is active on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook with many thousands of followers.Illustrator Tim Bowers has created memorable art for over thirty-five children's books, including The New York Times bestsellers, Dream Big, Little Pig! written by Kristi Yamaguchi and Dinosaur Pet by Neil Sedaka and Marc Sedaka. His work has been published in children's magazines, his illustrations have been used on a wide variety of products and his characters have appeared on hundreds of greeting cards. Bowers and his wife live in central Ohio. They are the parents of four grown children and are proud grandparents. CREDIT.StephenMorales

The new variations on the familiar refrain will probably be easy enough for adult readers to manage in a read-aloud, but the new verses’ scansion may be difficult to parse. A CD embedded in the back cover, performed by Loggins, is immeasurably helpful in establishing the rhythms.
