These children's tunes, produced in the late '50s and early '60s have a certain nostalgic innocence. At least some are traditional tunes given new expository lyrics. They deal with astronomy (like the "Constellation Jig"), energy ("Ultra Violet and Infra Red"), experimentation ("Vibration"), weather ("Warm Fronts, Cold Fronts"), and nature ("What Is a Mammal?" and "How Does a Frog Become a Frog?"). Be forewarned: A small sample goes a long way.
