Like the 'Boy' album, this is a re-issue of an album originally released in 1993 (though yet again the Christian record company does not acknowledge the source of the recordings on the re-issue's sleeve). The songwriting might be by experienced pros like Martin J Nystrom and John Chisum, but the lyrics, aimed at our little darlings, are crammed with cringe-inducing imagery like "Behind your blankie/The time is right for peek-a-boo baby" and "There's a cute little bear with soft fuzzy hair." When these are mixed with serious prayers like "Bless My Daughter" which begins "May she have the faith of Sarah/May she be as loyal as Ruth/May she have the wisdom of Deborah" it becomes clear they weren't sure if this set was being directed at tiny tots or proud parents. Jesus music devotees may want to note that the sweet toned vocals here are by Calvary Chapel pioneer Kelly Willard, but in truth this is coy dross that discerning parents wouldn't want near their child's bedroom.
