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.
