Take It From Me: What a Zoo! Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

What a Zoo! Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

A common bond that I think almost every kid has is a love for animals!! Some of the first things they learn to utter out of their mouths when learning how to talk is animal sounds. My son is just starting to talk and he absolutely goes crazy when he sees animals. Most of them he refers to as “doggies” and no matter what animal they are, he thinks they all say “eeeehhhh” kind of like a horse noise, but hey he’s still learning!!

Joanie and her band The Nightlights are continuing the momentum of their super successful 2010 Parents’ Choice® Gold Award-winning album- I’m a Rock Star, which captured the attention of many. I had the opportunity to review the new What a Zoo! CD and the kids and I had such a fun time rocking out to all of the entertaining animal songs!! Joanie definitely has one talented “rock solid”(as it’s been referred to) voice and her songs can really get you movin and groovin!! A few things that I really liked about this album were the various personalities that each song seemed to take on and the different song styles Joanie was able to create throughout the album. The songs were soulful, upbeat, and packed with educational value! We learned a lot about several different animals from sea cows to possums, whales, and more.  My daughter was even introduced to “Tofurky” for the first time through the hilariously entertaining Tofurky Song!!
There were so many favorites in this album that I could basically put every single song on our faves list! What a Zoo! is a wonderful CD full of life and rooted in the reflection of Joanie growing up with a deep love and appreciation for animals and nature. Joanie says of the album, “It was easy and joyful to record What a Zoo! The songs are meant to be fun, danceable, and humorous, and I hope the content also encompasses and encourages a larger message, for both children and adults.”
What a Zoo! is an inspirational, creative, and energy-filled CD which I guarantee any kid would love!
