Intended for ages three through seven, Kids Silly Song Sing-A-Longs is a lively collection of favorites performed by a cheery children's choir with accompaniment that's cloying but never overbearing. The collection is chock-full of old-school classics, including the sassy, upbeat "Froggie Went A-Courtin'," "O My Darlin' Clementine," "Alouette," and "Camptown Races." Newer material like "I'm an Alligator" (complete with a deep-voiced personification of said gator) might not be as strong, but is still enjoyable. Kids Silly Song Sing-A-Longs -- while not necessarily as silly as its title would have you believe -- does a good job of keeping its songs concise. The brevity (nothing is over two minutes in length) should hold the attention of young listeners, but it also keeps the simplistically happy music from becoming maddening to adults. The entire set is repeated in split-track format; a full lyric sheet is also included.
