More Pink Elephants: Fairy Tale Songs & Poetry
Mary Lafleur, who won the Parents' Choice Gold Award for her first children's recording, PINK ELEPHANTS, is at it again with her second release: MORE PINK ELEPHANTS: FAIRY TALE SONGS AND POETRY. No, it has nothing to do with ELEPHANTS and everything to do with telling a good story from an interesting, maybe even enlightened, point-of-view. The tales on this CD are more tongue-in-cheek than her earlier songs such as 'Goldilocks' and 'Chicken Little' and 'The Little Red Hen.' The message, for instance, in 'The Wolf and 3 Little Pigs' might boil down to 'Buy a brick home.' The songs work especially well in Fairy Tale units where teachers compare different versions and media.
