5.0 out of 5 stars Children and adults will love this! August 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD
"The Merry Goes 'Round" is Jewel's second children's album (the first was 2009's "Lullaby") and is part of the Fisher-Price Music Series. It's fitting that she is releasing this album just weeks after her first child, son Kase Townes was born. She said that she wrote the songs with lessons she'd like her son to learn in mind. Jewel's voice is so sweet and beautiful it's perfect for children's songs. Her acoustic guitar sounds awesome (as always) and compliments her voice beautifully. Comprised of both original songs and covers of children's classics, Jewel proves yet again that she is versatile and talented in whatever genre she chooses to sing. A few highlights include "Just Like Penguins Do," a beautiful song with a honky tonk vibe. I love "Oh! Susanna," a classic children's song that sounds wonderful with Jewel's country-folk touches. I literally got goose bumps when I listened to "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain." Her voice is so pure and elegant I couldn't help being touched by her singing. I realize long time fans of hers might want her to return to her "Pieces of You" days, but I really love this album. Babies, toddlers, children, and even adults will be able to appreciate these songs. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what we were looking for November 27, 2012
By janedoe
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The entire CD is awesome. Tons of fun songs, with a great mix of upbeat songs and slower ones. Our daughter's favorite song is "Favorite Things". All the lyrics are great and age appropriate and I wish she would make another CD like this one!! Her voice is beautiful and well suited for fun and soothing children's songs. Love, love, love it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not first choice just ok November 7, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Ok, but not what I expected. Songs are a bit strange. Grown up tunes with abstract kid versus. It is not the go to choice, but we still do play this for our 4 and 5 year old grand kids

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Diversity! July 2, 2014
Format:Audio CD
As a fan of rock/punk/reggae/metal, I was extremely hesitant to play this CD for my son. I was afraid he would love it and I would be stuck listening to it, trying not to tear my ears off. Alas, I underestimated Jewel's musical talent as both an artist and a songwriter. If you're looking to introduce your child to different genres in one fell swoop, this is definitely the right album. She has country, folk, blues, classic singer/songwriter love songs, even some swingy-type sounds. It's great. Absolutely entertaining and, because of the diversity, you can listen to it regularly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, only minor quibbles about it February 20, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Though not a Jewel fan, I was gifted her lullaby album and I ended up really liking it. I bought this one to expand the CD collection for when we are driving. Overall, I think the lullaby album is superior, but this one is definitely better than some of the kids' music out there.

Pros:
There are lots of different music styles, from the Andrews Sisters-esque Supermarket Song, to the good ol' 'tellin' a story' style of Bucky the Bull, to the bluesy Snooze Button Blues, to the older school country Jolene-esque of Give me The Rainbow (I think...I could be wrong...but one of the songs on there is in that style!)

The familiar songs are done in a new and innovative way, just like on her lullaby album. 'Oh, Susanna' and 'She'll be Coming Around the Mountain' are miles above the versions done on other kids' albums.

Cons:

-I think this skews a little more feminine, and can see it appealing to more girls than boys once they get past the toddler stage. Right now, my son is 19 months so it's not much of an issue, and I'm sure there will be some songs that are gonna be favorites no matter what. But overall the songs like Sarah Swan Sleepy Head and My Favorite Things I can definitely see being preferred by girls.

-The existence of "Just Like Penguins Do"- first off, the placement on the disc at #3 is weird. It's a very slow, very mellow song and it's sandwiched between the fun and upbeat 'Supermarket Song' and 'Bucky the Bull.' Not a huge deal if you listen on random, but I kind of feel like the order of songs on an album should be intentional. This would've been good near the end after the kid dances and has fun and is ready for a nap.
