AllMusic Review by

A fun and lively set of songs for kids, this collection really doesn’t have that much to do with either love or peace, but it has a lot of striking performances, including Los Lobos’ slowed-down rendition of “La Bamba,” Taj Mahal’s fine take on “The Banana Boat Song,” Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s soothing rendition -- complete with narration -- of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” and a surprising (and goofy) turn at “The Monster Mash” by Andrew Gold and Linda Ronstadt.
