Positive messages

Some issues, such as partying, a family?s house arrest and the glorifying of mining in South Africa are questionable but not emphasized. Some accented voices sound stereotyped.

What's the story?

WEE BEE TUNES TRAVEL ADVENTURES: THE JOURNEY CONTINUES! works better than its accompanying DVD -- the music seems to be the strength of the series. The CD covers music of various regions, including the revelry that is Oktoberfest and New Orleans, where partying plays such an important role. Music that addresses religious dogma, such as the founding of Jerusalem, brings another perspective. Perhaps worth noting is that political issues are often ignored; for example, South Africa's mining history is exploited for its economic gain and apartheid is glossed over.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

In the end, kids will like the swinging beats of the songs and parents can (and should) discuss some of the misleading (or missing) content of the CD.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the reference to partying at Oktoberfest and New Orleans (and how these places have more to offer than revelry), as well as some of the religious dogma. How do different areas of the world vary in their lifestyles and beliefs?
