All the songs are meant to get kids off the couch and to use their imagination and they are themed around household items, chores, and things, which are concepts the kids can really relate to. They really, really loved "The Banana Banana Song" and we’ve listened to it more times than I can count. We’ve also really enjoyed the instrumental versions of five of the songs and turned it into a preschool karaoke time. The CD also came with a coloring sheet which they really enjoyed doing. This CD is meant for ages 3-8, but would be great for any child in your life up to 9 or 10 years old. Even my almost 9 year old loved it and the baby and toddler I care for enjoyed it as well.
Around the House features 23 tracks, runs for approximately 40 minutes, and retails for $12.99.
