Our Thoughts

Okay, I know a lot of people that aren’t fans of the hip hop and rap genre and to each their own. I wanted to let parents know what to expect as in the sound of music that Secret Agent 23 Skidoo offers. I for one don’t often listen to that sorta genre either mainly because the lyrics aren’t very wholesome but that’s not the case in this children’s music cd “Make Believers”. This is a toe tapping, head bobbing collection full of songs with rich lyrics, grooving beats, and this entire CD meets kids where they are! It’s such a refreshing collection of kids music compared to a lot of it that’s out there. I for one as a parent appreciate the diversity and fresh sounds.

There are many great songs found on “Make Believe”, such as ones talking about the the first day of school, make believe play, loving who you are before you can be friend someone else, dealing with bullies, self image, and so many more! Songs are best suited and are recommend for elementary school grades though my 4 year old daughter and 1 1/2 year old son really love dancing along. I’m sure the lyrics will start hitting closer to home in due time.

I highly recommend this CD and am sure you’ll love it just as much as your kids! Right now you can purchase a digital copy of Make Believers on Amazon.com for $5.99 or you can get a CD copy for $13.00 here.
