Even for the children who have not seen Knight perform, these songs quickly become familiar. The great strength of this tape is Knight's knack for communicating with children. The lyrics cover a variety of subjects and seem to be of great interest to all the kids I tried them out on, from dinosaurs to caterpillars to garbage monsters and stone soup.There is a nice blend of story-telling, childhood fantasy and environmental concern. Knight's voice is clear and rich. Almost every cut inspires singing along. It is a tribute to Knight's charisma that children who have seen him in concert think that they are hearing their own voices on the album.
