    It's more than a catalog

    This book is a very attractive, entertaining and informative work. It is a pleasure to browse, with colorful 50¿s style illustrations as well as a generous sprinkling of color photographs of some of the records themselves and their vintage art jackets. The pages are of a slick, sturdy weight paper which will hold up well under a lot of thumbing through by the reader. It begins with a very interesting introduction which includes an explanation of codes and abbreviations used within, the purpose of the book, various types of children¿s records, what ¿vintage¿ means, information on children¿s record labels, a most interesting history of the ¿Golden Age¿ of children¿s records, and much, much more. The meat of the work is a well-organized discography of thousands of 78 rpm children¿s records from the 1940-50¿s with their disc ID numbers, song titles, artists, year, and estimated value. This book covers in an eye-catching way everything you didn¿t know you wanted to know about vintage children¿s records.

    Put simply, a great resource for children's record collectors!

    This book is like a rain shower on the desert--it is so needed by those of us who love and/or collect those old 78-rpm children's records from our childhood. To my knowledge, this is the first such complete coverage of a collecting area. Most of the listings in this book I have never seen anywhere else! Don't miss out on getting a copy if you have a nostalgic streak for old kiddie records as I do. Helene Krumholz, New York City

    Long awaited book finally to be published

    As a record collector and researcher with an interest in old children's records, I have relied on Peter Muldavin's unique archive and expertise on many occasions. His highly anticipated book contains information found nowhere else, and promises to be a goldmine for hobbyists who want to explore a new field record collectors who want to expand their horizons nostalgic baby-boomers who want to capture a bit of their past aficionados of Old Time Radio, comics, graphic design, pop culture, and children's literature and music industry historians who want to learn more about a time when children's records was a very big business.
