It's hard to believe that this is a first joint effort for Leeny and Tamara. From '50s doo-wop to pop country, their fresh, unexpected vocal lines weave through all types of music to make this album a fun ride for the ears. Musical arrangements call to mind the epic partnership of Lennon & McCartney. There are a lot of funny lyrics that are actually educational for your preschoolers and young grade-schoolers. Songs send great messages about taking turns, buckling up, and being comfortable in your own skin. Catchy, quirky lyrics touch on a spectrum of kiddie topics. Parents and children will love learning, giggling, and singing along. (5/5 stars) --Jessica Dawson, Common Sense Media

A fun, funny and educational CD for the under 10 crowd. This is an album that kids and parents alike will enjoy listening to over and over again. Leeny and Tamara have killer voices and sing in every style imaginable. The music will brighten your day and help the little ones learn a few things while they sing and dance to the music and have a rocking good time. Adults will be having the same rocking good time as the kids. This CD should be in the collections of any parent with young kids. (5/5 stars) --Andrea Guy, Ariel Publicity, ReviewYou.com

Leeny and Tamara have created a really fun, really catchy set of songs that actually teach us things. I ve found myself saying things like, "Did you know there are over five thousand species of ladybugs? And some of them are blue!" or "Did you know that other animals can produce their own vitamin C, but humans have lost that ability and that's why we need to eat oranges or we may get scurvy?" Yeah, I'm a riot at parties. Their song, "It's Cool To Be You" highlights the fact that we all have our own talents and we're all different. My son Ivan is blind and can't walk and I can't remember ever hearing a song that actually admits that "Some wheel around in chairs; Some can't hear and some can't see." It's refreshing. --Amber Bobnar, BostonChildrensMusic.com
