I was excited to receive this music, song and poem CD to review, as I'm a mom and I'm always on the look out for educational songs for my kids. This CD teaches not only the music we grew up with but adds some new songs that teach manners or proper etiquette. It mixes nursery rhymes with soul sounds and country sounds. There is a lot of music instruments as well as sounds to mimick your everyday activities, for instance brushing your teeth, cha cha cha chaaa. The music is very repetitive and easy to catch on to with the verses repeating it gets the kids involved because they can repeat what they just heard.

This is a perfect CD to include in any driving trip or classroom. Its not only educational but entertaining. I know my daughter got very involved in the actions the music was telling her to perform, clap your hands, stomp your feet, sit down, wave bye bye. She really enjoyed the itsy bitsy spider as well as the sequel to it. The nursery rhymes have a little added flair with the way they are being performed not just read from the book. My little one really enjoyed the Humpty Dumpty and the Jack and Jill.
Now if you are in the market for a pretty cool CD for your kids, this is very interactive and entertaining it has tons of sounds to capture little imaginations. The songs are very easy to understand and the music is very well chosen for kids.
