Songs to Grow on for Mother and Child

Songs to Grow on for Mother and Child is a collection of children's music by folk singer Woody Guthrie. Recorded in 1947 and first released in 1956, a remastered recording was issued by Smithsonian Folkways Recordings in 1991. Several songs in the collection are instructional, helping children learn to count. Others are songs of adoration written by Guthrie with his own children in mind. For example, the last song on the list was written for his son Arlo Guthrie who would have been nine years old at the time of the release.

"I really did try to slant these songs at all of your citizens from 4 to 6, but I spilled over a little on every side" - Woody Guthrie.
