AllMusic Review by

The somewhat strangely named Wild Animal Baby: Tender Moods collects 20 classic singalong songs for very young children, as performed by the Rocky Mountain Kids. The group performs pleasant renditions of well-known children's tunes like "Hickory Dickory Dock," "Pop Goes the Weasel," and "Old MacDonald Had a Farm." On these songs, and "The Farmer in the Dell," "Mary Had a Little Lamb," and "The Itsy Bitsy Spider," the Rocky Mountain Kids shine, but on other tracks, their vocals sound so sweet and trained that it can become a little cloying. Still, this collection features many longtime children's favorites, and since this album is sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation, it seems overly harsh to criticize it too much.
