Your child will be clapping, bopping, singing, and lauging through the entire CD! Excellent CD! Packed with fun songs that are easy for kids to sing along to. My 2 boys, 3 & 5 were bopping, clapping, and laughing all the way home from school as they listened to this CD for the first time today. This will be a fun CD to listen to all summer on our road trips. Highly recommended. Creative lyrics, fun instruments, and enjoyable melodies. -Steve
