"This is great! I also purchased More Reggae for Kids and liked that even better. Sound track is excellent, far exceeded my expectations! (After all, it is a children's cd). Artists from my era that children from my daughters' era can enjoy. Extremely positive, upbeat messages brings a refreshing change to the songs they are usually singing from the radio! We all sing a long in the car and find ourselves singing them throughout the day too! I purchased both Reggae for Kids and More Reggae for Kids and love them both. They make great gifts."
Don't buy this: many better alternatives for children and re

"I am deeply disappointed with this collection. The tracks chosen are neither the best for children, nor for reggae as a whole. You get many songs not sung in English--sung in Jamaican creole, and many with a some sound. I think you're FAR better off looking at almost ANY reggae from the 1960s (and some from the 1970s too).

Let me list a few: Desmond Dekker, Toots and the Maytals, and of course Jimmy Cliff. Look at buying instead This Is Reggae Music--the first two cds are great for kids! If you're on a budget try "Reggae Up! 40 Classic Reggae Cuts." Despite the nice packaging a promise of children's reggae, this album is poorly executed and a waste of your money."
