If you're bent on introducing your kids (or someone else's) to the world of theater, this collection will come in handy. Most of these tracks from productions such as The King and I, My Fair Lady, Bye Bye Birdie, and Oklahoma are fine, classic theater songs that young kids with open minds may take to like water. Mary Martin's yodeling on "The Lonely Goatherd" (from The Sound of Music) is captivating and her version of "Do-Re-Mi" (also from The Sound of Music) is simply charming. "Put on a Happy Face" (Dick van Dyke, from Bye Bye Birdie) will appeal to the budding actor in your house, and "I Could Have Danced All Night" (from My Fair Lady) will have the little romantic in your brood swooning. There is plenty of melodrama with "Hard Knock Life" and "Tomorrow," both from Annie and "Sunrise, Sunset" from Fiddler on the Roof. There's even a little dose of fairy-tale magic with "Impossible! It's Possible!" from Cinderella. --Lorry Fleming

"This is my 4 year old daughter's favorite CD! Its great to hear her singing songs from musicals instead of simple nursery rhymes. It awakened a sense of interest in viewing musicals both on stage and on video that I think has been very beneficial to her. Not only that, but it is actually an enjoyable CD to listen to for her, her 1 year old brother, her parents and even her grandparents!"
Not what I had thought

"Well, I am not sure what I had expected.
I LOVE Broadway musicals, a night out in NYC,enjoying the shows and strawberry shortcakes afterwards.
Perhaps I was looking for a CD that had Broadwaymusic geared towards kids,sang by kids and also the music adjusted to a young listeners ears.
I didn't get that.
I basically got a CD that had some songs that most likely you have on your already favorite CD's and you can pretty much copy yourself on a CD for your child.
Therefore I don't feel that I got what I was looking for.As well as money worth.
The reason I searched for this CD was that my child of course will not sit through an entire Phantom CD or whatever show, and will tune out after a short while.
Mind you she is 2.5 going on 3 but you can never start early enough, right?
But this CD doesn't offer anything different. Same wonderful artist and melodies and songs.. but to my opinion not geared toward little ears. NO matter if 3 or 5 or 7 years of age.
So it is a nice CD but I bet since you are interest in Broadway you have many CD's at home already and you easily could burn one for yourself with the ones you have. This is no different.
I still will use it in the car but I had hoped to find kids Broadway for kids and that isn't it.
It is artists and music and that is beautiful to my ears but defeats the purpose of the purchase, for my young one.
HOpe this helps.
