Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that there are two CDs included with this album, one for rockin' out with your little ones, and another with mellow music to settle them down at bedtime. The songs are family-friendly and full of lyrics to boost the imagination and channel kids' energy into dancing, smiling, and ahhhh....snoozing.

What's the story?

PARTY LIKE A TWINKLE STAR is a two-for-one gem that includes a jammin' "Party" CD for daytime and a cozy, sleepy-eyed album for "Twinkle" time. It's the perfect combination to get kids moving and groovin' and off their bottoms during the day, but ready for nighty-night when the sun goes down. This CD is a virtual parenting survival tool packed into 20 tracks to take you from a.m. to p.m. and back again.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

Pop in the "Party" CD and get the gigglies and wigglies out of your kiddos with trips to the moon and sun, beach adventures, and baking fun. Then tuck them in with cozy lullabies about the stars and warm hugs on the "Twinkle" counterpart. With Phish-like melodies and cool grooves, this CD will also appeal to parents. In addition, kids can learn about making pancakes from before scratch in "Pancakes," embrace their inner rocker in "Rockstar," and sail off in an "Amazing Rocket Ship." The "Twinkle" tunes are a perfect complement to the raucous songs with light piano, acoustic guitar, and some a cappella harmonies to sing little angels to sleep after a full day of fun.

Families can talk about...

This album is a classic and amazing for all ages!

We adore Charity's music, and this album is a classic!! The "bedtime" songs are sweet and beautiful melodies. The "party" songs are infectious and will inspire you dance! Although this is "kids" music, it's so wonderful for adults, too.
