From the back cover: The making of this album has been a delightful experience for me. Unlike previous Chipmunk albums a new dimension was added – that of children's voices – and I must say I was apprehensive. Where could a group of children be found that could sing like children and behave like adults during the complicated recording sessions? The answer turned out to be the wonderful group of kids on the cover with The Chipmunks – The Jimmy Joyce Singers. My sincere thanks to Jimmy and to all his talented kids – to Bob Doherty for his fine engineering work and to Don Blocker for the great help he gave me in putting all of the elements together.

From Bilboard - March 27, 1965: A throughly delightful album which should find favor among children of all ages. The kids' chorus adds an extra dimension to the Chipmunks sound. The fare is all happy and gay with cuties like "Hello Dolly," "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and others.
