Songs sing about things from retching bullfrogs to the scabs of chicken pox to mosquitoes and Harry Potter’s lord Voldemort.  Some tracks have educational components, and the insert booklet contains a kid-friendly funny glossary that will help them understand some of the song lyrics.

Though the first impression one might have is that this album is meant for very young listeners, third and fourth graders will also appreciate the sly humor and contemporary topics found in many of the song lyrics.  An unusual little album that would definitely appeal to the elementary school crowd.
