Didn't grow up with it, and not a fan.

I did not grow up with this music, but bought it for my children based on the glowing reviews here. I have to admit I was shocked at the cheesiness and the way it insulted not only my intelligence, but that of my children as well. Yikes. , I was astounded that this passes for good children's music. I do not contend that it might teach a child certain values, but there have got to be better means than this music. I wish this site had snippets one could listen to before purchasing the item; it would have saved me the trouble.
I love it!

So glad Deseret carries this CD!

I have been looking for these songs everywhere-I'm so glad Deseret Book carries this CD! My sister and I listened loved this series as kids; now that I am grown I have inherited the Power Tales/Power Tunes set to share with my own children. The books were intact, but the old tapes were shot. After looking everywhere, I was ecstatic to find the music here at Deseret! At first I thought my 7 and 8 year old boys might think these were too silly and old fashioned so I just gave them the book to look at one day when they were home sick from school and started playing the CD. Since then I catch them playing it several nights a week and humming the tunes all throughout the day. I was so pleased that they could be touched by the positive message of these songs just as I had been several decades ago. These truly are values that transend generations! To those who didn't grow up with this music: Please understand that each song goes along with a story that illustrates the value. You can buy the book on Amazon (Lael J. Woodbury, 1984). Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
Cheesy things stick in your head

After 30 years I still have these tunes floating around in my head from when my Dad first tortured me as a young pre-teen. It really wasn't torture. The values sung really spoke to me. Of patriotism, of what a family should be and of good word ethics. I want my children to have the same tunes in their heads.
Can't wait to have my kids sing along with me!!

I listened to this cassette tape as a kid, and came across it the other day. Once I started playing it I instantly had to sing along to every song! I love the values that these songs teach and am so happy I found this MP3 so my kids can learn from and love them too. All I can say is, can't wait for a fun road trip with these tunes playing and all of us singing along :o) Good times ahead!
