Instead of concentrating on Christmas carols and holiday tunes sung by or to children, CEMA Special Markets' It's a Kid's Christmas contains ten tracks that are sung by adults (well, with the exception of "The Chipmunk Song") and appeal to children. The slight distinction makes all difference, since this is an album that will appeal to both children and their parents. There are some weak cuts, but Bing Crosby's "Frosty the Snowman," Nat King Cole's "All I Want for Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth)," Dean Martin's "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," Peggy Lee's "Happy Holiday," Lou Rawls' "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" and Jackie Gleason's "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" make this budget-priced collection worth every penny.
