Putumayo Kids Presents: Animal Playground

Performers Various Artists

Putumayo | May 22, 2007 | Compact Disc

Putumayo Kids Presents: Animal Playground is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
The Putumayo label is well known for putting out enchanting compilations of world music, and ANIMAL PLAYGROUND continues that tradition with a twist. A 13-track trip around the globe, ANIMAL PLAYGROUND collects songs about animals (many of which have fantastical stories attached to them) from different cultures, making for one of the most intriguing and delightful children's albums to come along in a while. "Contingo do Sapo" is the story of a singing frog put to a Brazilian forro beat, while Italy's Quarterro Cetra do an uptempo version of "Old MacDonald" (in Italian, of course). There are English-language offerings as well, but the entire disc offers non-stop singalong fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun! Our daughter absolutely loves this CD and so will you. Don't be surprised when you find yourself singing along to these songs. It puts a wonderful global spin on some of the classics like the story of Goldilocks. Enjoy!
