There is no track listing on the back of the CD cover as most CD's have and whilest in the car CD player there are no track numbers showing, on the CD player at home there is and it lists there as being 27 tracks and the total running time as 70minutes 59seconds which is not the advertised 35minutes run time. The CD runs through the ABC song and then does each individual letter one at a time finishing off with the ABC song at the end again. Rather than have new tunes made up for each letter they have adapted well known tunes such as twinkle twinkle little star etc and give the letter an item such as B is for Bell and sing a song along to that tune in addition to showing the phonetic sound for each letter. There are two singers on the CD, a man and a woman and they take it in turns to sing and describe each letter.
A good CD to help your little one learn the alphabet and even though my son is a bit young for this at the moment the catchy tunes and singers voices have him smiling and hopefully as I'm introducing him to this early it may help him pick up words sooner and the CD will be being played for a few years to come I'm sure.
There's no track listing included with this CD but it's all quite straightforward - after the introductory 'Sing the Alphabet' song there's one track for every letter of the alphabet. Each song introduces a letter with a simple phrase (much repeated) like "Z is for zip" then ends with a reprise of the Alphabet Song before moving on to the next letter. They cheat a bit with the letter 'X' which is apparently "at the end of box" rather than the beginning of 'xylophone' - somewhat ironic when there's something that sounds suspiciously like a xylophone plinky-plonking in the background throughout the CD. After a while the songs could still drive you a bit crazy, especially on longer car journeys and wet weekends, but then again would you rather the kids were singing and learning or shouting and grumbling?
then there is a little song (as described) on the subject of ants, for A; bells, for B; etc etc. And a bit of revision at the end of the song of the sound you've been learning and the letter's name.
I like the fact that it combines both the name of the letter and the sound - they are going to have to learn them both (and their connection) eventually and this is a really fun way to do it. I didn't feel it was too advanced for my almost three year old - he really liked it and liked the little song, and because he knows all the tunes already I feel we should learn them quite quickly.
I thought it showed quite a lot of thought by someone with some brains and experience of teaching reading, and that it was also fairly enjoyable musically.
For the purpose of learning the alphabet and the phonic sounds, I think it's a good acquisition.
