Diehard fans of the TV show might be disappointed in the lack of some season one favorites (notably songs by Cathy Richardson), but the compilation works as is with its gentle, folksy, good-natured charm. Standouts are "I Like It That Way" by Sweet Honey in the Rock, "Bugs Are Really Swell," "B3" by Rebecca Frezza, and the songs performed by the Laurie Berkner band, all especially well-written and performed. A variety of musical styles and excellent instrumental work will keep this CD from driving parents too crazy -- at least on the first couple of listens.
