Auntie of 1st Grader and 2-year old
This CD is fun and has great educational value as well. Definitely reminds me of School-House Rock which is still a favorite of mine...So far my 1st Grade Nephew seems to like the music.

My kindergartners and I love rocking out to Alphabet Rockers!
My kindergartners and I love rocking out to Alphabet Rockers! Not only are the students dancing and having a great time, but they are learning as well! The songs are hip with interesting beats and the kids think the songs are \"cool\". Some of our favorites are: Countdown Boogie Down, The Seven Days of the Week and the kids love \"rapping\" to The Money Song. I look forward to hearing more from Alphabet Rockers and encourage everyone to check it out!

My 3 yr old loves it!
I brought home Alphabet Rockers last night and my son was immediately interested. He loved the art-work and we had a ball dancing to the music. Instant fave's were 'The Rainbow Song' and 'The Money Song.' It's great.

Rock n' Rollin Teaching!
I have been teaching kindergarten in San Francisco's Hunter's Point for over 12 years now! I always have a challenging bunch of kids I am teaching, who know when they hear bad music. Me too! I am also a musician. I quiver at the sound of all the cheesy laden songs that are out there for my students to listen too. I have been searching for this ALBUM(CD) my whole teaching life. I find myself singing the 100 days of school in the shower. My Students are soooooo excited about the songs they beg me to play them over and over again. As a teacher, mother, and a musician, I cannot give this album enough stars, seriously. ABC ROCKERS, you rock my world, make my life as a teacher even more exciting and help me make learning and teaching fun. YEAH YEAH YEAH!!!!!!

Beth

this cd rocks!!
I have listened to so many kids' cds...this was the first one I not only didn't want to throw out the window....but loved it! Kaitlin and Dawn and the other musicians are super fun, energetic, and cool! Your kids will love it, more importantly, you will. Tell all your friends to buy this cd. Now!

My kids love this record! They keep asking to listen to it, and my 5 year old LOVES the countdown boogie down song... I want to see Kaitlin and Dawn on Sesame Street! I LOVE this music for kids!

Mom of 3-year-old
Kids music always makes me nervous -- a lot of it can be overwhelming after a few 100 plays. But this is fun and funky and I enjoy listening to it too! The Countdown Boogie Down is our favorite.
