Williams dishes up an easygoing, feel-good collection of folk-tinged
originals on his first children's recording. The title track sets
the kid-centric mood with its simple philosophy: "Big fish
eat little fish in the ocean and the bay/Big fish eat little fish
every night and every day/Big fish eat little fish that's what they
say/But I hope the little fish get away." Other selections
- "Snowboarding," "Swimming in the Swimming Pool,"
and "Make a Tent" - focus the spotlight on some famous
kid pursuits. Young listeners will be eager to try substituting
their monikers in the lyrics of "K-A-T-I-E (The Name Spelling
Song)," a deceptively simple ditty that draws listeners into
an enjoyable exercise in counting, spelling and singing along. And
listeners will have a good chuckle at "Merry Halloween,"
in which Santa gets his dates mixed up and arrives on October 31.
On a more serious note, "Shoulda Had a Helmet" recounts
the story of a child who has seen the light about wearing a bicycle
helmet after suffering a bad fall. Guitar, banjo, strings, accordion
and percussion instruments are skillfully woven throughout, adding
appeal to the proceedings. All ages."
