CD Reviews

Great! Especially the new version of Happy Birthday!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We're great fans of Tom Chapin's family music. (I hesitate to call it children's music, because it's so appealing to adults, too!) Whenever it's someone's birthday, after singing the more traditional song, our family sings Tom's version of Happy Birthday: "Happy birthday, happy birthday, we love you. Happy birthday and may all your dreams come true. As you blow out the candles, one light stays aglow. It's the love-light in your eyes where-e'er you go." We sing the song on people's answering machines if they're not home on the morning of their birthday. The first time we left it on my mom's machine, she called in tears and had us sing it to her over again. She said it was the most beautiful birthday gift she'd received in a long time. We agree. Thanks for this touching birthday gift, Tom! And for all the other wonderful songs on this CD."
Great Listening For Young and Old Alike
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a superior children's cd. A mix of great music and vocals telling a series of compeling 2-3 minute story songs. Well I think it is just superb!Parents, teachers, librarians all can use this cd to not only enjoy great music and lyrics but to explore simple and complex story themes, plots, characters with sometimes serious humour and grace. The story songs cover a variety of topics you will enjoy to include ecology, holidays, being an "outsider", etc. The songs collectively and individually stand the test of multiple listens! I highly recommend this as a starter for the music of Tom Chapin. In addition to the Whale Song mentioned above add "Neat Mess" (a really hit home tune) and "I'm Going Down to the Library"....Tom Chapin does for children's stories in song what his brother Harry did for many of the rest of us!"
Great music for kids of all ages...

"Early on, we found Tom Chapin when we (adults) got tired of other kids' artists. Back then, our child was 2, and our friends' kids were 6 and 10, and we all loved singing the songs, and even seeing Tom in concert. Great family fun!

Later, our girls continued to love Chapin's songs and concerts, and we make his concerts a family trip every summer, even with our (now) teen. Now our neices are enjoying our Tom Chapin CDs, and our kids still don't mind hearing them again. These are songs kids can grow up with!

Our family favorites include Family Tree, anything about Bruno (one on this album), and many more. Don't Play With Bruno is a particular hit with gifted kids...

Our elder daughter now loves some of Tom Chapin's adult songs, especially A Study's About To Begin."
