    Lovely folk songs for little folk and adults alike

    I love the option of listening to this children's music CD sung in normal adult voices and accompanied by actual instruments - no silly screaming or adults putting on baby voices. They are mostly fairly chilled songs with a couple of upbeat ones. The song book is great and has chords and melody so you can play along at home. I think anyone who likes folk music would like these renditions. There are a few others in the series too which I also like.
