Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that 2- and 3-year-olds will enjoy the tuneful arrangements and upbeat tempos in this wonderful addition to the Child's Celebration series, while older children will appreciate the humor and energy of these tracks.
What's the story?
Although some of these songs are over 50 years old, A CHILD'S CELEBRATION OF SONG 2 sounds remarkably fresh. Where else could you meet Danny Kaye, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and Sebastian the Crab in one place? Despite all this mature talent, kid-favorite Raffi steals the show. Close your eyes and listen to his original composition "Bananaphone," and you'll swear he grasps an ebony cane and wears a Fred Astaire-style top hat and tails: He sounds that sprightly and debonair.
Is it any good?
The first-rate musicians on the CD dazzle grown-ups, too. Rollicking tunes range from zydeco to rock & roll to calypso to folk in this wonderful addition to the Child's Celebration series. These are songs that just beg for a turn around the dance floor -- perfect for family play.
