What's the story?

This cheery collection features bilingual renditions of well-known children's favorites. \"She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain\" is rousing, and the repetition makes it perfect for learning. The entertaining \"If You're Happy and You Know It\" involves children both physically and verbally. \"La Bamba\" is a singable, danceable ditty that gives kids the chance to learn the English words to a familiar Spanish-language tune.

Is it any good?
