Silly Joe sings about family trips with grumpy dads in “Are We There Yet?” crazy pets in “Timmy Had a Tiger” and “Dumb Dog,” brother and sister relationships in “Little Sister Blues” and “Princess in Training,” and kids who act goofy in “Put It on My Head” and “The Underwear Song.”

Mixing stories with music, Silly Joe captures family moments in an honest and imaginative way.
