    Bill Harley has an amazing knack for capturing the flavor of childhood and family interactions. I have a few of his albums-- some, like this one, are mostly stories ("Dinosaurs Never Say Please" and "Grownups are Strange" are two others). Others are mostly songs ("There's a Pea on My Plate" and "Big Big World"). Some of the songs are priceless (There's a Pea on My Plate), but overall I like the story albums better. My 8-year-old daughter adores them-- I am occasionally chagrined at some of the...
