With 20 tunes in around 38 minutes, this CD is ideal for listeners in its targeted audience: kids from 2 to 5 years old. The songs (and rhymes) are all classics, and each is taken at a slack enough pace that the artists stand out. And who are the artists? Kids themselves, all in the targeted age range. They get an acoustic folk accompaniment for "I'm a Little Teapot" and a faux R&B backing for other tunes. Loosely gathered in, the lyrics for the songs delight children's ears and are tremendously cute, full of offhand mirth and glee. There are moments of in-studio laughter that make the final CD, and if that weren't enough, there are also what sound like impromptu recitations, from "Peas, Porridge Hot" to the quick "Fuzzy Wuzzy." In addition, the CD includes a great "Happy Birthday" and numerous examples of call-and-response singing that make adults happy merely to hear something so unhampered by excessive scripting, structure, or controlled forethought. --Andrew Bartlett

Elmer fudd kids who think they're cute

"I was highly disappointed by this cd. I had also read the reviews and thought this might be fun for my 2 year old son. First of all the kids all sound like they've had speech lessons from Elmer Fudd. Second, the recording is striving for `cutesy wutsey' and comes off as quite nauseating. I like the sound of children's voices, so don't get me wrong on this point. Smithsonian series has some great songs with kids singing and it is quite enjoyable. The kids on this cd however, are so self-conciously trying to be cute that it comes off as annoying, especially the old man is snoring song. Be warned. There are much better and fun cds out there choo choo bugaloo and the above mentioned Smithsonians cd series as well as satchmo sings disney etc. avoid this one unless you are a lover of sacharine cutesy wutsey poorly produced garbage. my kid doesn't like it either. he is bored with it. and god knows I don't want him@speaking like these kids. uggggh"

"The CD features little children singing, complete with giggles and minimal editing. My toddler loves to hear her favorite songs sung by other little "kids". Great for singing along and, my child's favorite - spinning. :-)"
