While the selection of songs is quite comprehensive and some of the singers sing quite well, I was very disappointed by the German pronunciation of some of the singers. This is NOT German. This is German very poorly spoken by a native English speaker. For example, the letter "R" in German is a guttural sound, on the CD it is pronounced like an English 'r'. Of all the German songs on this CD less than a handful were pronounced correctly. I cringed listening to the German songs. The numbers and the alphabet were recorded in very poor German. If you really want to learn German do so from a CD with the correct native pronunciation. Making and selling a language CD with poor diction is a disservice to those eager to learn another language. Even my husband, whose German is rudimentary, picked out the English accents in the German songs!
If you would like to expose your child to German, the BBC series "Muzzy" is a good way to start and will also help you learn the language in a fun manner.

There is a book that accompanies the CD; it's too advanced for my children at this point in time, but the illustrations DO help when you are listening to the CD. (The CD goes through a day in the life of "Maria" - the book shows pictures of things like Maria's family, her school day, and such)
Even though I have never taken German, I can say the alphabet and count to 10 - as can my children. They also have a VERY VERY basic start to learning the German language. We have ordered the "Teach me MORE German" sequal to this and hope to be as pleased with it as we are with this one.
I highly recommend this for exposing young children to the German language.
My only complaint is that the songs are sung by young children; the pronunciation and clarity isn't always great.
