Review: Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta HITS for Growing Families


Have I got a fun new children’s music album to share with my blog readers today from Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta Music, called #1 Hits- Music for Growing Families. This is a fantastic collection of greatest hit songs from 1993 to 2011 from Children’s music writer and singer Katherine Dines. Her songs have even been featured on Grammy Award winning albums and she’s also received many other awards.

How do we like this particular CD? We are pretty happy with it! There are fifteen fun songs featuring everything from Dadddy Being on Diaper Duty, OoeyGooey Stew, and The Goobaws! There are songs that are fast and slow, and I’ll have to say there’s a good mix of the two for sure.

I love that these songs are like story full of rich lyrics that are easy for children to understand and enjoy. My daughter thinks the song Ooey, Gooey Stew is a riot. She tells me that the stew is so gross and she doesn’t like it. Another song my daughter likes is Sheet Shakin’ Bed Quakin Belly Achin’ Wide Awake Blues. I am sure she can relate too because quite often she’s up much longer at night than she should be!

My favorite song is We Don’t Ever Have to Say Goodbye which features the word goodbye in numerous languages. A great song to prompt discussions with your child about other cultures and languages different from our own.

I totally recommend parents and teachers to check out this fun filled CD. I think it would be a fun listen at home and on the road the Spring and Summer season!
