Animals aren’t known for composing music...But if they could…they might sound like The Guess Who Zoo...[which] presents animal facts in the form of rhyming riddles... set to cheerful tunes."
...Music [to] entice youngsters to practice their listening and rhyming skills while singing along to zippy tunes..."
The CD...has been picked up by institutions such as the Bronx Zoo, The Children’s Museum of Long Island, and The American Museum of Natural History—a strong indicator of its educational worth."

Educators

The Guess Who Zoo is like a happy combination of Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein, and Ogden Nash put to music. The Zoo has just the right mix of whimsy, inventiveness, playfulness and repetition to be immensely appealing to kids of all ages. And there is a very reassuring message in its telling kids that they are smart, yet 'we all make mistakes.' I do have a serious warning: The tunes are so infectious that you will be unable to get them out of your head. (I still haven't.)"
The Guess Who Zoo album has become an absolute favorite with my children. Every afternoon at school, they ask, 'Can we listen to the Guess Who Zoo?' (I use it as an incentive.) They've memorized all the lyrics and they love to sing along with the record."
The clever rhyming encourages repetitive listening and language enrichment..."
