What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this is a very fun album, full of educational songs about counting, money, days of the week, and even spelling. But some younger preschoolers may not appreciate the hip-hop style and rockin' beats that aren't the norm with children's music.

What's the story?

Despite all its positive messages, ALPHABET ROCKERS tries too hard to set itself apart from other children's CDs with an edgy sound that features lots of hip-hop and urban sounds, as well as some DJ-style scratching. Does scratching belong on a CD targeted to preschoolers? And while adult ears might be intrigued by the offer of something different, the captive 2-year-old and 4-year-old might be uninterested after the first song.

Is it any good?

If you can get the kids to hear past the rap and reggae that's a tad mature for little ears, the songs are both fun and educational with positive messages.
