Editors’ Notes

Still basking in the bright afterglow of the Summer of Love, Marlo Thomas and a handful of her famous friends gathered in 1972 to deliver a message of acceptance, equality, empowerment, and peace aimed at a pint-sized audience.

I listened to this all throughout my childhood during the early 80's. I now have a child if my own, and can't wait until she's old enough to sing the words!
