Chapin is one of the most professional and literate children's performers. His recordings, which include Family Tree and Shovlin', are among the wittiest and most appropriate for children (and big people love them too). His recordings are among the best produced for children, and this is probably his best. For ages three to ten. ~ Bob Hinkle & Chip Renner

I am a first grade teacher who uses music daily in instruction. Tom Chapin has provided my class with many CDs, but this one, the Family Tree, which was my first, is still our favorite. We (all the first grade teachers at our school, and the students) especially take delight in the CD title song, Family Tree, a song which celebrates diversity and the family of man at the same time, becomes the first grade theme for the year. This Pretty Planet, a round about the earth, compliments study of the solar system, and allows me to stretch the children's listening skills. I really could elaborate about each song included in this work of art, but instead should just give it my whole-hearted recommendation as a CD which teaches, and entertains, both children and adults.

My children (3 & 5) were introduced to Tom Chapin's "Family Tree" at a sleepover. They loved this CD so much that they wanted to listen to it over and over. By the time I took them home, they knew all the lyrics to the song "Long Way Home". I am not a big fan of music-for-kids, as I usually find it cloying. Tom Chapin is changing my mind about that. So many great songs on this CD!!!!
