Tom Chapin, the younger brother of singer/songwriter Harry, has made a stealthy career out of creative children's music. He writes tunes that are lyrically charming, musically fetching, and altogether fun. Even with a string of recordings as impressive as his, Zag Zig is the best. It incorporates Chapin's fondness for intricate horn charts (on the Latin-tinged "Vitamin Si") and his quirky, memorably humorous lyrics on "Backwards Birthday Party." Best of all, the lyrics aren't simply silly: Each song passes on a narrative strand, however brief, that helps kids as young as 2 years old remember turns of phrase, development in a story, and more. --Andrew Bartlett

Not as good as other Tom Chapin tapes we have
(3 out of 5 stars)
""Zag Zig" just isn't as good as the other two Tom Chapin tapes we own, "Family Tree" and "In My Hometown." The songs "Vitamin Si" and "R-E-C-Y-C-L-E" are the only real standouts on "Zag Zig," in my opinion. I'd be hard-pressed to choose only two favorites from the other two tapes I mentioned. If you are new to Tom Chapin, go for "Family Tree." I think it's one of the best children's tapes I've ever heard."
