What's the story?

Alison Faith Levy, formally "Sippy Alison" of The Sippy Cups, sings about the fun and simple pleasures we experience on a daily basis in nature on her album, WORLD OF WONDER. The 11 tracks take listeners on a journey through the rain, a tornado, and the life of a rooster and baby anteater.

Is it any good?

Levy is a veteran when it comes to kids' music but she falls a little short with World of Wonder. There are moments of cuteness on tracks like "Baby Anteater" and "I Had a Rooster," but many of the other tunes offer repetitive music and generic lyrics that don't really set the album apart from other children's titles. Even the vocals are less than expected at times. It's not an easy task to write children's music that's smart and appropriate without being too juvenile or mind-numbing for parents, but Levy makes only a mediocre impact here.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the role that music plays in a child's life. What kinds of music did you hear today? Are nature sounds, like raindrops dripping and bees buzzing, music too?

  • Think about a specific situation where music influenced you. Do you think there's enough music in children's lives today? What are some easy ways that parents and schools can incorporate music into everyday living and education?

  • How can you make your own music at home with items you have around the house?
