Take a spicy Cajun tour through Louisiana's bayou country on Choo Choo Boogaloo! The musical scenery includes foot-stompin', two-steppin,' finger poppin' zydeco emblazoned with hot guitar licks, sassy accordion, and a dash of blues thrown in for good measure. Traditional titles, including "Get on Board," "Iko Iko," "Little Red Caboose," and "Cotton Fields," have been well adapted to zydeco style, while "Crawfish Song," "Mardi Gras Mambo," and "Give Me a Squeeze, Please" are right at home in this celebration of Cajun culture. Children will have a wonderful time moving with the new rhythms and exploring the sounds of various instruments used to create the unique zydeco style. --Deborah Moore

Great music for little ones and big people too! Not at all "dumbed-down", real Cajun music.
Wonderful get-up-&-move music for children and parents too!

"After debating between several CD's, I was swayed by the rave reviews on Amazon.com into buying this one for my son's third birthday. I am so glad that I did!!! My 3 year-old as well as my 18 month-old love this CD! All I have to say is, "Do you guys want to listen to Choo Choo Boogaloo?" and they are already dancing with excitement! I really enjoy the CD as well. The music is wonderful--different styles, rhythms, etc. I never get that, "this whole CD sounds the same" feeling. My favorite song is the first one, "Choo Choo Boogaloo"; it starts out fairly slow and gets faster and faster, get like a train starting down the track!!"

"Not only do my 1 and 4 year old children enjoy this album, so do I. Great to listen too - you even catch yourself singing to almost every song. There should be more children's music like this."
