What's the story?

Although The Wiggles seem to put out new albums quicker than you can say "G'day!," there's never a shortage of fun or quality music for little kids. This time, the friendly foursome from Down Under sing about food, what we eat, when we eat (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday...), and where it goes when we're done on LET'S EAT. There are a whopping 28 tracks on this album, with guest appearances by Keith Urban, Mic Conway, and Aussie legends Mental as Anything ("Let's Cook") -- and, of course, Dorothy the Dinosaur.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

It's hard to imagine that The Wiggles can continue to come up with new ideas about a Big Red Car, but somehow they do. On Let's Eat, Anthony, Murray, Jeff, and Greg sing mostly about food in all its flavors. Preschoolers will especially love the catchy "Let's Cook" and swingy "Go Far Big Red Car." Urban's rendition of Roger Miller's 1965 sing-along "England Swings" may not be about food, but it's an upbeat, whistling ode to the Union Jack. And "That's What You Call Digestion" answers the question "Where does your food go?" in a kid-friendly way that's educational, without any yucky details.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about what it means to eat well. Can you give examples of a healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack? Does this album make you think about what you eat? What other types of media (TV, Internet, etc.) make you think about what you eat? 

  • Watching your favorite TV show like The Wiggles, do you notice the commercials that come on? What are they usually advertising or showing on the TV? When you see these commercials, does it make you want to buy what you see?

  • How much television do you watch? Does your family set time limits on TV time, computer time, or video game time? Why do you think this is important?
