The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Zanes' album is more than just a CD. The music comes packaged in a mini-book of drawings, many of which refer back to the album's theme of night. The drawings are engaging and sweet, full of animals playing instruments, smiling moons, and friends and neighbors gathering on the slope.

What's the story?
Dan Zanes found fame in the 1980s as a member of New York City punk band the Del Fuegos. But you'd never guess that listening to this incredibly gentle compilation of folk songs. It's clear that Zanes spends a lot of time with his children and that they are the primary inspirations for his music. In NIGHT TIME, Zanes covers American classics such as \"What a Wonderful World\" (with Lou Reed), \"Down by the Riverside,\" and \"So Long It's Been Good to Know You.\" It's a good opportunity to introduce kids to musicians like Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly as well as traditional songs from around the world. As an added bonus, one of the tracks, \"Que Fortunidad,\" is in Spanish.
