If your kids' music collection is short on genuine toe-tappers, you've gotta check out this infectiously upbeat CD. The tunes — all performed by Jamaican children's musician Father Goose and guests — are tinged with a reggae beat and Caribbean flair and have a casual, relaxed vibe that'll make you yearn for palm trees and a hammock. Though aimed at kids, all 17 songs on the album have plenty of grown-up appeal — and a good thing, too, because your kids will want to play them a lot.
