Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS Up

This beautifully produced pair of book/CD kits takes the best of America's folk music and reinterprets it for children. The songs are highlighted three times: first, for listening, with the lyrics laid out on one or two attractively illustrated pages, then with the guitar chords, and, finally, with a short history or story about its origins. In Folk Songs , the selections include "Skip to My Lou," "The Fox," "The Cruel War," and "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad." Sleepytime contains traditional lullabies such as "All Through the Night" and "Brahms Lullaby" and some unexpected choices as well, such as "Ole Blue" and "On Top of Old Smokey." Widener's acrylic paintings are expansive and gorgeous, but the CDs are the real treasure here. All 12 songs are performed by Yarrow (of Peter, Paul and Mary fame) and his daughter Bethany. Father and daughter blend their voices as they interpret and tell the story of each song. These classics are designed for listeners and singers alike to enjoy. Share these collections with children of all ages.-Jane Marino, Bronxville Public Library, NY
