Review:
An enjoyable new release in the well-produced bilingual Uni Verse of Song singalong series, this time featuring children's songs in French and English. Singer Jean René and an appealing kids' chorus invite listeners to join them, saying French words and singing favorite songs with a French twist: On Old MacDonald's farm, for instance, there is a pig (un cochon) "qui fait gronk-gronk, toujours gronk-gronk"--and Mary's little lamb is "un petit mouton." Classic French children's songs are given a bilingual treatment, too: "Sur Le Pont D'Avignon," "Alouette," and "Au Claire De La Lune."
