Religious/Christian songs! What a pleasant surprise! I had no idea! Yaaaay!, June 13, 2017
By JOC8778 (Texas) –
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: 100 Singalong Songs For Kids (Audio CD)
OK, I’m not really that excited about the religious songs, but they don’t bug me. I just read the reviews of some people acting as though they didn’t realize they’d be getting a few Christian songs. I suppose they are afraid it will brainwash their children. Fortunately I was able to use my brain (thank Charles Darwin for that!) and read the track listing before purchasing! Secondly, anyone who knows how to use a web browser can find out in about 5 seconds that Cedarmont Kids is totally a “bible thumper” company. So stop trying to make yourselves feel relevant/important. If you were that much of a sophisticated intellectual you would have already known what you were getting into long before purchasing. There are plenty of other children’s albums out there you can buy if you are afraid your beliefs may be challenged by children’s songs.
So about the music itself – the songs are mostly traditional but a few of them have been “jazzed up” a bit. Some people will like that, I don’t mind it but I prefer more traditional versions. Secondly, the instruments are synthesized and so if you are nostalgic for your 1980s childhood like I am you’ll be OK with this, otherwise it may sound a bit outdated to you. Overall I give it 5 stars for the price. But I strongly recommend you supplement it with Disney Children’s Favorites volumes 1 and 2.

Excellent!, August 7, 2017
By Christine Calabrese, Indie Author –
Great songs on this CD! Get it for your preschool classroom! We loved all the CDs and used them daily. The songs are sung by kids and adults, they are well recorded.

Fun and simple, but very religious songs, July 26, 2017
By The Martins (New York, NY) –
My two-year-old son loves this CD.
–Virtually every nursery rhyme and song you can think of is on the CD.
–The music is simple and fun, it is sung by little kids, and it is enjoyable. My son tends to prefer rhymes sung by little kids (as opposed to adults), and he tends to prefer simple renditions with one or two instruments, instead of complex orchestra pieces.
–Each CD comes in a sleeve on which the list of songs on the CD is printed. So, it is very easy to find a song that you want.
–There is a lot of *Christian* music on here. Even songs that you would not think are religious have been reworked with lyrics that reference Christianity and Jesus Christ. The CD’s description does not make this apparent at all, so I was caught off guard. I am not very bothered by religiosity, but I don’t think it is fair to parents who are not religious or who are not Christian to be basically lured into buying Christian music without being informed beforehand.
–This CD is very patriotic and America-centered to the point of reworking nursery rhymes’ lyrics to fit in America-first lyrics. That doesn’t bother me, but if you are not a parent who wants your kids to grow up listening to jingoistic music, you might want to rethink buying this.
