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. Alan Alda’s musical version of the picture book William’s Doll introduces kids to gender issues in an appropriate way, while football great Rosey Grier announces “It’s Alright to Cry.” Carol Channing’s “Housework” is hilarious, and who could argue with Harry Belafonte’s message in “Parents Are People”?
Just as pertinent as it ever was
One of the best, if not the best children's album ever. My mom bought me this record in the 70's, I listened to it and grew up with it, really. It is still as pertinent and as listenable as ever.
Awsome for kids and kid's at heart!
I've listened to this album so often I know all the words. I think it has had a positive influence on me to be me and not conform to the lemming mentality of doing something because everyone else is doing it. Let's teach kids (and remind our adult selves) that it's ok to be different. It's a lovely trip back to childhood for many of us.

Unfortunately this does NOT have the original recording of When We Grow Up with Michael Jackson and Roberta Flack. I am truly disappointed and I will not be buying the album because of it.
