What parents need to know

Parents need to know that young and old who love Pooh and know the characters and stories will enjoy this movie-score CD, but much of it is better as background to visuals or other activities rather than songs that stand on their own.

What's the story?

THE BEST OF POOH & HEFFALUMPS, TOO contains new songs by Carly Simon and classics from the 1960s by the Sherman Brothers. Parents will enjoy the classic Pooh songs where familiar character voices inspire a nostalgic journey to the Hundred Acre Wood. In \"The Wonderful Thing About Tigger,\" the wonderful message is \"that I'm the only one!\" Without preaching, it conveys a timeless lesson for young and old. The orchestration on the CD doesn't overpower and the instrumentation adds variety.

Is it any good?

These songs are kid-friendly and fun, and have retained their spark of invention and appeal. For example, "Up Down and Touch the Ground," Pooh exercises not to lose weight, but to increase his appetite, so he can eat more honey. Young and old who know the Pooh characters and stories will enjoy this movie-score CD, but much of it is better as background to visuals or other activities rather than songs that stand on their own.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the wealth of topics introduced in these songs. To name just a couple: In "Little Mr. Roo" the message is "don't grow up too fast"; and "Shoulder to Shoulder" presents a sentiment worth exploring: "I think I feel more like myself when I'm with you."
