This recording is a musical celebration of the different cultures of our world. The songs are from all over the globe, including Spain, New Zealand, Morocco, the Caribbean, the Far East and many more exciting places. Each song is sung in the country's native language and incorporates indigenous instrumentation from the region. A special treat is the concluding track, which urges children to "have fun" in a variety of languages.

This recording features songs from around the world sung by children and adults in their native language. There are songs from Chile, Venezuela, New Zealand, Ghana, South Africa, Morocco, Brazil, Italy and Spain. The music features a wide variety of dance styles, instruments, languages, and beats making the album perfect for any daytime activity, whether its playtime or car rides. Listeners experience a Spanish flamenco song with Hoy es tu Cumpleanos, a tarantella (an Italian couple's dance) with Tanti Auguri, and a salsa with calypso sounds in Vamos Al Caribe. The strong and definitive sounds of drums, hand percussion, hand claps, and a muted trumpet make Have Fun! Viel Spass! stand out on the album. Epo I Tai Tale features the distinctive sound of a steel guitar and dobro, Pajarillo Verde features a flute, and Valparaiso features staccato notes on an organ accompanied by an accordion.

Although many of the songs are in languages other than English, there is strong encouragement for your little one to interact with the music. Songs like Have Fun! Viel Spass! have easy lines to join in, like sha na na na hey!; the title of Epo I Tai Tale is repeated many times throughout the song, so you can sing along even if you don't know German; and children yell 'Hey!' after each line in Tue Tue. The majority of the songs have strong drum beats, which your child will recognize almost subconsciously and be able to clap, slap their knee, or bop their heads to. You can help educate your child about how different regions produce unique flavors of music by sharing with them the native country of each song (included on the back of the CD).

My three-year-old friend, Sam, popped up when Awaimbowe came on and shouted, I know this one! This South African song is also known as The Lion Sleeps Tonight. Sam spun and danced around with a huge smile on his face, yelling the chorus lines at the top of his lungs. I even joined in, since the music is infectious and I already knew the words (well, the chorus at least). Hearing this song opened Sam's mind a bit to the rest of the songs, and he started asking what language each song was in and where it came from.
