Timeless music/messages for children

by carinasana@yahoo.com on 7/14/2008

This was my favorite record (yes,record) when I was a child. I recently purchased the CD for my 5 year old daughter. The songs are fun to sing along to, there is a mixture of stories. The overall message is the '70's effort to show equality between men and women; boys and girls. My daughter loves dancing to 'Brothers and Sisters'. Read More

This soundtrack album to the Emmy Award-winning 1974 children's TV special has become something of a classic over the years, and with good reason--its kid-friendly message of tolerance still resonates. More importantly, the songs, including contributions from Broadway vet Sheldon Harnick and Dr. Hook auteur Shel Silverstein, are cute without being cloying--"My Dog Is a Plumber" and "Don't Dream Your Cat in an Apron" are particularly endearing--and the cast is pure '70s variety-show heaven. Frankly, any album featuring Alan Alda, Mel Brooks, and Carol Channing is doing something right from the get-go.
