AllMusic Review by

Songs from Under the Big Top! collects more adorable singalong and activity songs from JoJo's Circus. Once again, Madeleine Martin is as cute and fresh as can be as the voice of JoJo; on tracks like "The Stretching Song" and "Pat Your Tummy and Rub Your Nose," she proves that her performances -- as well as the rest of the vocal cast's -- are just as important to the show's charm as its vibrant visuals are. Songs from Under the Big Top! puts slightly more emphasis on activity songs than the first JoJo's Circus album did; "Flap Quack," "Jump for Joy," "Hamstercize," "Balance and Pedal," and lots of other like-minded songs make sure that kids will get a workout as they listen to the album. However, there's still plenty of room for cheerful kid-pop like "Gum Drop Song" and "Stuck to You." Subtle nods to Cajun, Afro-pop, '50s rock, and dance music make Songs from Under the Big Top! as musically interesting as it is fun. Even though more than a few songs from JoJo's Circus are repeated here, this album should still delight JoJo fans who want to jump, clap, laugh, dance, and sing along with her.
