This collection of kid-friendly contemporary pop features hits from Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, and Avril Lavigne, to mention but a few of the many artists given the post-Mouseketeers treatment by this seemingly bottomless pool of young Disney talent. While most kids over a certain age might prefer the real thing, these collections function as a fine primer in the arcane world of 21st-century pop for their younger siblings. For example, those old enough to count will be able to see that it took eleven adults to write Lopez's "Jenny From the Block," information that will doubtless prove useful in future playground discussions. These cute renditions of often-heard radio hits should provide endless hours of singalong fun for kids not quite of an age to be arguing the merits of belly-button jewelry, and a much-appreciated respite for their parents.
