This Kathie Lee Gifford album, Party Animals, is filled with cute songs for children that will make both them and their parents laugh and want to sing along, and maybe dance a little. The tunes are joyfully entertaining for small children -- as well as not-so-small children -- and yet the lyrics serve a purpose, using fun stories to educate young listeners on everything from a mother's love to learning to share. Gifford co-wrote the songs for Party Animals and another album, Goodnight Angel, with artist David Friedman. When it finally came time to start recording, Gifford brought in her own children, Cody and Cassidy, to help with some of the singing. This is a great album to buy just for the car, since it can make long rides with little ones go by much quicker, with laughter instead of complaints. A few of the fun tunes from this album are "Shake Your Rattle and Roll," "Ratty Paddy in Her Disco Suit," "Kids Gotta Move Their Swing Thing," and "Even Moms Have Problems Too."
