"Great Big Fun for the Very Little Ones"
Harry Chapin's younger brother, Tom, is back with Great Big Fun, a
collection of folk favorites such as "Zag Zig" and "Uh-Oh,
Accident," as well as classics such as "Big Rock Candy Mountain" and
four brand-new tunes. As usual, the music is exceptionally played,
rootsy, and still the stuff that kids love.
"The City of Soundsville"
Wow, after the last Powerpuff Girls CD, it seemed that Bubbles,
Blossom, and Buttercup wouldn't be able to top themselves. "City of
Soundsville," though, might even surpass its predecessor. The
music's all danceable pop, with electronic beats and the girls'
voices woven through each track. The kids will be playing each
scenario out to your delight.
"Arthur's Really Rockin' Music"
Arthur & Friends
Zydeco, techno, boot-scootin' country, and even tango are the
musical terrains over which Arthur, D.W., and the beloved aardvark's
TV pals traverse on "Arthur's Rockin' Music Mix." This is a fine set
that reflects the show's values, and it's a lot of fun, too.
"Cardcaptors: Songs from the Hit TV Series [SOUNDTRACK]"
The story behind the anime series "Cardcaptors" resembles Asian
mythologies, but the soundtrack is all glistening modern pop.
Singers such as Rikki Rumball invoke timeless affirmations and extol
the powers of good over all else. Meanwhile, the beats proceed in
danceable chunks that sound entirely different from standard radio
pop. It's music with a moral. What more could you ask for?
DISNEY, DISNEY, DISNEY
"Mickey's Dance Party"
Mickey Mouse tears it up on his very own "Dance Party," a set that
will have the walls and floors rocking.
"House of Mouse!"
If your kids wake up Saturday mornings pining for their "House of
Mouse" fix, probably it's the music as much as the television that
has them riled up. Brian Setzer opens this 21-song collection, and
Mickey Mouse is the exalted emcee. It's all fun and games, with
Donald Duck turning in a terrific "You Can Fly, You Can Fly."
More than two-dozen tracks from Disney's preschool shows make this
collection a gem for the younger set. Pooh, Rolie Polie Olie, and
PB&J Otter all have their theme songs here, where those 4 years
old and under will have their ears tuned incessantly.
"Walt Disney's Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs: Classic Soundtrack
There's nothing like a Disney classic. And "Snow White" brought us
the songs "Someday My Prince Will Come," "Whistle While You Work,"
and "Heigh-Ho," among many others. Get all the music from the
original 1937 animated film, and bathe yourself in the beauty and

Patti Teel's "Floppy Sleep Game" approaches a child's slumber as a
game that's part sound, part role playing. The music is gentle, and
the game is multifaceted. If it's bedtime you're interested in, try
the game. It's eye-opening for parents, eye-closing for the younger
