Family Fun Magazine -- Moira McCormick The Little Things As he says in this album's liner notes, songwriter Rick Wong believes 'the little things that parents give their children' have 'a much more positive impact than the big events.' With that in mind, Wong has penned a dozen tunes exploring the nooks and crannies of family life, wrapped up in a mellow package of folk, jazz, country, and golden-oldie rock'n'roll. Most touching is 'I Want Mommy,' in which a tot reassures his dad, 'I love you.../But when I want mommy only mommy's gonna do.'
