Children's Media Reviews

The children’s media collection at Provo City Library boasts some delightful hidden gems most people know nothing about (unless they stumble onto them accidentally). Here are a couple music CD titles you won’t want to miss.

A Flower Fairy Alphabet – Who doesn’t know and love Cicely Mary Barker’s fantastic flower fairy artwork? This CD is a compilation of songs, sung by darling children voices, about many of the fairies featured in her work. Any girl who loves fairies will love this CD.

Swashbuckling Sea Songs – Inspired by Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean this CD is filled with lively pirate songs that will get any pirate-loving child excited. My favorite track was the actual soundtrack for the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. The whole ride was in there and brought back fond memories from my childhood of going on one of my all time favorite rides over and over again. There is the occasional mention of a bottle of rum in some of the lyrics, but what true pirate song would be without one?
