It is a fun, joyful and sweet collection.

I've always loved Art Garfunkel's fabulous voice, but I was surprised by how wonderful this CD is.

It gives praise to the Lord for all the things the morning brings.

This is my first Art Garfunkel solo album, and I absolutey love it! The songs are so precious. "Lasso the Moon" is a beautiful song. It puts me to sleep every time. "Good Luck Charm" sung by Art's 6 year old son, James, is really cool. He really did an outstanding job! Kids will get a kick out of hearing him sing. "Morning Has Broken" is beautiful, too. It gives praise to the Lord for all the things the morning brings. This CD, in my opinion, is Art's best. Thank you, Art! God bless you!

Almost all songs, with the exception of the boppy one, Good Luck Charm, sung by his little boy, are quite mellow...and very appropriate for bedtime. Dreamland and Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, moreover, are perfect as such. It'd be difficult for me to pick a favorite song - all have beautiful, catchy melodies and words. Some, in their evocativeness regarding parent-child love, still bring tears to the eyes of this new parent. That said, many of these songs are also touching when listened to as traditional love songs. Finally, the writers of some of these songs include Lennon/McCartney, James Taylor, Mary C. Carpenter, Marc Cohn, Garfunkel and others.

I really enjoyed this CD, as did my 7yo son and 4yo daughter. The song "The things handed down" is especially beautiful. I also really enjoyed the duet w/ his young son, "Good luck charm." It is not only well done and sweet, but my kids really like the fact that a child helped make the CD. Many of the other songs are re-makes of favorite classics that are beautifully sung. You can't go wrong.

Garfunkel's out-done himself this time! What a truly fantastic combination of tunes! His rendition of Marc Cohn's "Things We've Handed Down" is incredible. "Lasso the Moon" has become a theme song for my son and I ~ This is an album that every home needs!

I've always loved Art Garfunkel's fabulous voice, but I was surprised by how wonderful this CD is. I expected "kiddie songs" and that isn't what this feels like to me. "Morning Has Broken" and "The Things We've Handed Down" are both beautifully sung and are 2 of my favorite Garfunkel singles of all time! My children also love this CD, especially singing along with Art's son James in "Good Luck Charm." Guaranteed to make you smile! "Lasso the Moon" is another wonderful song! Highly recommended for anyone.

As a big Art Garfunkel fan I bought this cd when it came out, before I even met my husband or had my son. I didn't play it much until I was pregnant and it soon became my favorite. Our baby is 5 months old and it is still HIS favorite music. We play it to chase the fussies away, to play in the bath, to cuddle and fall asleep. It is a fun, joyful and sweet collection. We love it!

And from the look and title of this cd, a parent can give this cd to a child, and on the inside, you will see a message from Art Garfunkel to his son James Garfunkel, who was 7 years old at the time of the release of this cd, and he does a deut with his wife on Who's Gonna Shoe Your Pretty Little Feet? And he also does a deut with his son, mostly you can hear James on Good Luck Charm. The booklet gives you the songs, and the names of the people that played during the recording of each song, he has Steve Gadd, whom also played drums, during Simon & Garfunkel's reunion concert in Central Park in 1981, Russ Kunkel, Bill Maxwell, Chris Parker all on drums, looks at the booklet for all the names that are on each of the songs, they also the lyrics for the songs in as weel. The tracks are

1. Who's Gonna Shoe Your Pretty Little Feet?

2. Morning Has Broken

3. Daydream

4. Baby Mine

5. Secret O' Life

6. The Things We've Handed Down

7. You're a Wonderful One

8. Good Luck Charm

9. I Will

10. Lasso the Moon

11. Dreamland

12. Who's Gonna Shoe Your Pretty Little Feet? (Reprise)

13. The Lord's Prayer/Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

These are children's sogns that you will hear on this cd, and all are recored with Art Garfunkel's voice, even the 2 songs that I pointed out that he does a deut with his wife and his son on, you can kind of tell that Art is signing along, but it is James that does the singing on the tune, whether you can understand what he is singing or not, please don't think he got some strange kid to come into the recording studio with him.

Is it possible that Art Garfunkel has been around for so long, collectively and indivually, that we take his talent and voice so lightly? He truly has the voice for a piece such as this, not only do I find his music irresitable, he can sing me to sleep any time!
