AllMusic Review by

Dobson was a capable if unexceptional folk singer, and did a capable if unexceptional job on this program of 18 children's songs, all arranged and sung folk style of course. Walter Raim, who had played guitar and banjo as an accompanist on recordings by Judy Collins and Harry Belafonte, does the same here, adding a little depth to the otherwise bare arrangements. It's not a great kid's record (particularly on the de rigeur offerings with snorting animal noises) or a great folk record, and certainly the last of Dobson's folk LPs that should be checked out by the curious.
