    the only nighttime music my kids will listen to

    the cd that comes with this book has been playing nightly in our boys' bedroom (they're now 2 1/2 and 4) for more than a year. the songs are great lullabies, soft voices with soothing guitar instrumentation. there are classic folk songs that you can sing along to, and ones i didn't know but learned about through notes (for the grownups) that light on different aspects of american history (some very sad and moving, actually).

    the pictures are beautiful and you can really spend the whole length of the song with each one. the page for "the water is wide" always takes my breath away (it's one of my favorite songs, too).

    the fact that my son started singing "Kum Ba Ya" in public when he was 18 months was just a bonus.

    if you respond at all to american folk songs (and the voice of peter yarrow) and want to pass them on to your young children, there's no better way than with this book/cd combo.

    Beautiful book and lovely musical CD!

    My 6 week old granddaughter seemed quite relaxed listening to the music and to her grammy reading this story to her. Highly recommend it! Definitely will get another songbook by Peter Yarrow.

    the most beautiful children's cd i've heard

    both my children - ages 3 and 10 months - LOVE this music. The CD is well produced - crisp, clear sound with beautiful voices. Relaxes my children almost instantly. The accompanying book is nicely illustrated, but the songs are long and the words not necessarily stories that engage young children in the written form as much as in song. But this is a fabulous CD, I'm online to buy more children's music from this fabulous duo.
