This was enjoyed by my children and I in the 80's, we are now appreciating it again. Ralph McTell has a glorious voice, humorous lyrics and is a great taste of nostalgia yet modern enough for today's children.

My children had this on a cassette 20 years ago when they were small; they loved it at once, and now that my original cassette is almost un-playable through much use I have bought the CD to introduce this little gem to my 3-year-old granddaughter. I'd recommend it to kids, Mums and Dads and grandparents too!

I sang many of these songs with school pupils of mine in the past and they loved them. But as an adult I still find them humourous and quirky and they get more entertaining the more you listen. Brilliant collection - and now its pretty complete compared with my old, worn out (and somewhat abridged) audio tape.
Great voice, great humour for all the family.

My children loved these songs back in 80s - especially in the car, playing them on a portable cassette player! I've sung them time and time again with children at school and they have been enjoyed by all. Now it's time to get cracking with the next generation and introduce my grandson to the super lyrics, jaunty tunes and underlying moral themes. A real 'find' for anyone who loves singing along. Each one packed with memories.

I write children's songs so know a good'un when you hear it. This collection was fresh and funny when I played it to my children and is even more so as I sing it with my grand daughter.

This should be complusory listening for anyone wanting to impose some of the tuneless and twee garbage foisted on children's ears that I come across so much. Buy it, you won't be disappointed. The guitar playing alone would grace any album written for adults. You get the sense that these songs were written out of love for his own children so there are no shortcuts, no short measures.

Ralph McTell shows his versatility as a great song writer, with a beautifully crafted album which although aimed at children is equally entertaining for adults. My wife used to listen to this all the time when she was a kid and she was desperate to reminisce. There are the obvious stand-out tracks such as Holly the Hedgehog and Kenny the Kangaroo, the latter being a great tune for toddlers (or full-grown adults) to bounce around to.

I bought this album to entertain and educate my three year old grandson about the animal world. So far he's not particularly receptive, but as a life long Ralph McTell fan, I 'll make sure he comes to enjoy it ... even if we have to have 'Kenny the Kangaroo' on constant playback while we are larking around!
