Favorites for Children

Favorites for Children

by Burl Ives



Burl Ives, the man who brought Sam the Snowman to life and helped make the television version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer one of the most faithful holiday annuals in pop culture history, alternated four children's stories and their attendant songs on this 1974 LP for Children's Records. Ives' familiar voice makes him the perfect figure to recite these favorite stories, and the arrangements on the songs are light and nimble, replete with acoustic guitar and woodwinds. In total, the list of songs (each with an accompanying story) is "The Witch at the Well," "The Tailor and the Mouse," "Mr. Froggie Went A-Courtin'," and "The Crocodile Song."
