This soundtrack came out when I was a little girl in the early seventies and I just purchased it for my young ones. It had very ground-breaking lyrics for that era, specifically that children should grow up to be who they want to be, not worry about stereotypes for girls and boys, etc. It was more a statement for feminists at the time, but today it is just part of our culture to teach acceptance of all sexes, races, religions, sexual preferences, etc. and kids will get the idea that it's fine to be whoever you are, and that to live in peace, we all must respect our fellow sisters and brothers. The CD comes with the lyrics, sung and/or spoken by famous voices like Alan Alda, Rosie Grier, and of course, Marlo Thomas. The stories are memorable and meaningful, and whether your child loves to sing along or just listen and learn, there are lifelong lessons to be enjoyed on this soundtrack. I still recall most of the lyrics after all this time, that's how impressive they were to me.
