The Wild World of WildlifeSpring 2010 Music
Ages: 1 - 5 yrs.
Producer: Birdies Playhouse
CD Price: $10.99
Review:Singer-songwriter Birdie Mendoza puts respect for nature front and center. Songs set to Latin and jazz rhythms give elephants, iguanas, monkeys, manatees, wombats, and fiddler crabs their musical moment in the sun. The monkeys chant, the fiddler crab raps, the wombat scats as Birdie takes listeners on a wildlife tour around the world. "Elephant in the Congo," with vocalist Billy Valentine, one of several fine guest artists, is a standout.
