At first, I thought Camila was still too young to completely understand and follow the storyline in "Our Silly Farm Adventure" since it's recommended for children ages 2 and up. That was not the case at all. Maybe she still doesn't grasp the context of what she is listening to, but she loves the silly animal sounds, the catchy songs and the identifiable kids' voices.
