From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Nostalgia aside, Woody's 20 Grow Big Songs is a great resource for those who sing with the very young. This book is a ``replication of an unpublished songbook'' and features hand-lettered lyrics, music, and pen-and-ink sketches with watercolor washes done : by Guthrie himself. Despite the volume's antique flavor, the songs are truly timeless and so singable. They're written with much repetition and with a lot of action--just the ticket for preschool children! Several basic work selections, such as ``Pretty and Shinyo,'' ``All Work Together,'' and ``Pick It Up,'' will be a boon to nursery and day care facilities. ``Little Bird'' gives readers a chance to add a tune to Guthrie's unfinished song. Preschool teachers, care givers, music teachers, and families, all will appreciate this versatile collection of one of America's finest folksingers and song writers. --Mollie Bynum, Chester Valley Elementary School, Anchorage, AK

From Kirkus Reviews:

With easy, singable tunes, lots of repetitive verses with real child appeal, and the hallowed folk singer's own lively, freely rendered sketches, this replication of an unpublished book that the Guthries put together in 1948 for their children will be especially valuable to parents and in day-care centers. The songs themselves were recorded earlier and may be familiar; happily, this format should bring them a wider audience. Also available with a cassette recording by son Arlo.
