Good for generations to come
22 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got this record when my children were young. They danced to the music and learned every word of every song. I recently went on line and bought the CD for my grandchildren. What do you know! They are dancing to the music and have learned every word of every song. The songs are as important to kids today as they were long ago. Thank you. My grandson, who is 8 especially likes the song "It's alright to cry." His Dad has taught him that boys don't cry (His Dad is from Texas). He is pretty sensitive so he is going to have his Dad listen to this CD. My granddaughter prefers "Ladies First" because of the irony. My own children love being able to share this with their children.
