Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Essentially a label sampler featuring selections from children's albums by Buckwheat Zydeco, Cedella Marley Booker, Maria Muldaur, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Taj Mahal, and John McCutcheon, Music for Little People's A Children's Celebration of Folk Music is filled out by the licensing of songs by Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Doc Watson, Raffi, David Mallett, and David Grisman and Jerry Garcia (the one newly recorded performance is Michelle Shocked's "See the Sea") to make for a varied folk collection of entertaining songs that range from traditional material to Guthrie's childlike "Riding in My Car (Car Song)," and from Raffi's idealistic "World We Love" to Muldaur's spirited reading of the Johnny Burke-James VanHeusen song from the Bing Crosby film Going My Way. Children may not sing along to all of it, but they will enjoy it, and their parents won't mind. ~ William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide
Children of all ages will delight in the simple melodies featured in A Child's Collection of Folk Music. These story-songs are repetitive and eminently singable. Material ranges from traditional twangy banjo numbers like "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain" from Folk granddaddy Pete Seeger to the soulful song-in-the-round "Run Molly Run" by contemporary gospel group Sweet Honey in the Rock. Moms and dads will have the opportunity to share some of their favorite folk artists with the next generation: Michelle Shocked, who does a lovely traditional Irish-minstral-type ballad; Taj Mahal, who performs a bluesy "Little Brown Dog"; and Woody Guthrie on "Riding in My Car (Car Song)." And for all the Deadhead mommies, there's Jerry Garcia and David Grisman performing "There Ain't No Bugs on Me." Kids will particularly enjoy the Cajun boogie of Buckwheat Zydeco and the trip-over-the-tongue island music of Cedella Marley Booker. --Paige La Grone
