School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 3-Each of these wonderful anthologies consist of 14 songs about little boys or girls and things they like. Many of the tunes are also available on other recordings. A variety of musical styles are featured, including folk, country, swing, jazz, rock and rap. Both recordings have excellent sound quality, even the classic songs from earlier eras. The album about boys begins with the classic comic "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh!" sung by the incomparable Allan Sherman. Among the other great songs are "18 Wheels on a Big Rig" (Trout Fishing in America); "I'm an Old Cowhand" (Nickel Creek); "Bucky the Bucking Bronco" (Gene Autry); "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" (Raffi); "Fishin' Blues" (Taj Mahal); "If I Was a Train Engineer" (Gary Glassman); "The John Deere Tractor Song" (Don Walser); "Crazy for Dinosaurs" (RosenShontz); and "I'm a Singin' Pirate" (Captain Bogg & Salty). The unparalleled Maurice Chevalier begins the Girls album with "Thank Heaven for Little Girls." Next is Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely"" arranged and sung by Livingston Taylor, who makes the song all his own. Among the other songs are "Daddy's Little Girl" (Victoria Jackson); "Nothing's Too Good for My Little Girl" (The Mamas & The Papas); "Would You Like to Swing on a Star" (Maria Muldaur); "Surfer Girl" (an old Beach Boys song with the MFLP Kids); "Jenny the Bubble Gum Queen" (RosenSchontz); "Daydream Believer" (The Monkees); "Under the Table" (Rebecca Pidgeon); and "Lullaby to a Doll" (Carrie Lyn). Both of these thematic albums will entrance and entertain youngsters with an excellent selection of classic and contemporary songs.-Beverly Bixler, San Antonio Public Library, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
