Editorial Reviews

Many of us grew up singing folksongs along with Peter Yarrow, so it seems only fitting that we pass that gift to new batches of sons and daughters; nieces and nephews; grandkids and friends. This hardcover-and-CD package features 12 classic folk songs, including "Pop! Goes the Weasel," "Old MacDonald Had a Farm," "Oh Dear, What Can the Matter Be?," "This Old Man," "Row, Row, Row Your Boat," and "A-Tisket, A-Tasket." It's the perfect combination: The book provides illustrated lyrics, guitar chords, and historical notes; and its audio accompaniment offers sing-alongs backed by Yarrow's smooth, sonorous voice. The best sort of hug.
