I suppose Nelson Word's licensing deals will ensure that the deluge of cutesy American albums - supposedly communicating the gospel truth to kids but in fact treating them like brainless nitwits to be patronised with cornball homilies and Mom's Apple Pie fantasy - will continue unabated. So here's four more albums in which Carter and Barney Robertson have wrapped a lot of inane dialogue for squeaky voiced kids to speak around a set of songs from the prolific pens of Mary Rice Hopkins, Ernie Rettino and Debby Kerner (the original perpetrators of this gruesome genre) and Peter and Hanneke Jacobs. 'Ages 4 through 10', 'Christian values and songs for today's families' boast the sleeves. But my kids (ages seven and 10) refuse to go near these and are staying with their Carman, Ishmael and Sammy Horner albums, thanks very much.

This was one of my family's favorite - no actually it was our favorite cassette tape we had growing up. We had every word of it memorized. We loved it from about the age of 3-7... but then, I'm now 26 and I still love it! I'm trying to find myself a copy as somehow we lost the tape in the last 15 years! (Very sad). But it was such a fun cassette to listen to... Very much recommend it and plan to purchase it again for my children.

I bought Vol.4 The Old Testament Field Trip for my children in the late 90's. They love the songs, my son credited it with his early learning of times tables and they still reminisce about them.
I played the tape to a group of toddlers today who loved the tape and were bobbing as it played.
I only read this review as I am searching for all 4 Vols on any medium, but preferably CD, to buy again now.
If anyone knows of how or where to get them please do get in touch.
