Review:
Tongue twisters, word-play, limericks, riddles: this effervescent new family album from veteran duo Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer is filled with join-in fun and, shh, education, too. Two farming, yodeling sisters teach vowels in "A-E-I-O and U." Can't remember the names of the states? Sing along with "50 States" to the tune of "Yankee Doodle Dandy." Visit MacDonald's farm and do the "Pig Latin Polka Dance," solve "A Riddle in the Middle" and learn to "Scat Like That." As always, Fink and Marxer's tuneful, folk-flavored songs are based on a sturdy foundation: respect for the hearts and minds of their young listeners.
