5.0 out of 5 stars The soundtrack of my childhood! December 25, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I almost cried when I found this CD. I never thought it would be available after all these years. I had the LP as a child and my brothers and sister and I listened to it constantly. It was THE soundtrack of my childhood. Even as adults, we'd sometimes comment about this song or that song. It made such an impact on our growing up years. So when, just on a lark, I did a search for it and actually found it I was ecstatic! I've now had the opportunity to not just tell my kids about these songs, but to let them experience them for themselves. And they love them today just as much as we did 30 years ago. And I think what I like most about it is that it is just a man singing. And unlike so many other kids albums, it is not high pitched and sugary, like so many adults do when they talk to kids. He just uses his regular, beautiful voice to talk and sing, this time through songs kids (and adults) love over and over and over again. Theses are timeless. THIS IS A MUST HAVE CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Children's CD - A Must For Your Collection December 19, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
We absolutely LOVE this CD. We received it last week, and my 22 month daughter requests it regularly. But the best part is that I don't mind listening to it over and over!
Beginning with The Little White Duck, this CD is chock-full of peppy child-appropriate songs. We already have A Twinkle in Your Eye, but that is more a folk CD. It has some of the same songs as Little White Duck (Froggy-Went-A-Courtin and Little Engine That Could), but also includes songs about dying cowboys and wife-beaters. A good CD, but not a child's CD.
But The Little White Duck is just about perfect! Burl has such a fantastic singing voice, and he seems to enjoy these children's songs without singing down to the kids.
My daughter is already picking out some words to the songs, so I know she's paying attention! And her mom (me) is enjoying old favorites (Froggie and Little White Duck) while finding new ones (I can't get enough of Fooba Wooba John)! There isn't a single song on this CD that I don't like.
I have had a few misses while trying to find music for my daughter that doesn't drive me absolutely batty, but Little White Duck is a home-run!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest childrens albums of all time July 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Little White Duck" is a compilation that was first released on LP on CBS's Harmony budget imprint in the 1950's, recorded in the 1940's and features some of the greatest childrens songs about animals including the title track, Froggie Went a Courtin', The Grey Goose and Two Little Owls plus tracks about other topics that kids are interested in such as "The Little Engine That Could," a medley of Mother Goose songs, and "Fooba Wooba John." Quite a few of the tracks do have Burl telling stories behind the songs as well. The artwork on this CD is the same as the 1974 LP reissue of the album, not the original Harmony album pressing, and uses "rechanneled" sources for all the songs so while this CD isn't exactly "audiophile" quality as quite a few of the songs do have surface noise, it serves the purpose of a great childrens album in Burl Ives fashion. It is a great album to learn nursery rhymes as well, just like another reviewer said, so if you come across this CD or LP anywhere, please pick it up and enjoy. Even older people can enjoy this album as well as children.

BTW, since the Columbia CD is now worth over $40 and is in rechanneled with very muddy sound, if you want a CD copy of the album with much clearer fidelity, I recommend 8 Classic Albums - Burl Ives instead of this CD for the best sounding digital version of the album. The mono vinyl is definitely worth seeking out and keeping though for the best sounding analog copy of the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little White Duck & Other Children's Favorites December 10, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I had this as a child, it then passed to my niece who FINALLY returned the worn out vinyl to me when she was 28!...I wanted my daughters to enjoy it and went looking for it here at! Found it, love it more and now my daughters will know about <when you walk the streets you will have no cares if you walk the line and not the squares, when you go through life make this your the donut NOT the hole!> Burl Ives has the very best voice for singing to children...clear and concise. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I got tears in my eyes January 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
just listening to sample of this album that provided. I remember the LP vividly from my childhood - my sister and I listened to it over and over. One time our mother sat on it and broke it and we cried so much that she went out that same day and bought a new one.
Now I have my own 3-year old son, and the other day I sang the song about Sarah the whale for him as well as I could remember it. He wants to hear it all the time now! I didn't really expect that the album would be available after all these years, but there it was! Since I now live in Germany, I'm just sad that it's not listed on, only on the US
I can only recommend this album. The songs are clever and fun for adults as well as kids, and Burl's voice is just magical. I hope it will be around for a few more generations!

5.0 out of 5 stars One in a million. April 3, 2002
By G Adams
Format:Audio CD
In the late 70's, my wife bought the album in a store as a treat for our two children and little did I know how special it would be. I remember many days, coming home from work just around dark, with these songs playing countless times, and to our surprise, we would unconsciously hum along with them. We never tired of it! Now my daughter has a son of her own and teaches school, and my son's in school working on his master's degree, and I'll bet they still remember the words to these songs. I can still see them sitting on the living room floor with their toys while listening to this album. You can't do better than this one for the kids.
