I was pleasantly surprised. The songs were great, the kids enjoyed the interactivity and the Chapin sisters joining Tom were wonderful.

Tom Chapin played the guitar, banjo, and auto harp beautifully and he sang very nice lyrics for children. I was reminded of hearing him play so well on the TV show "Make a Wish" forty years ago.

5 stars.
My granddaughters and I loved it. We especially loved Tom's daughters and grandchildren. The afternoon would have been perfect but we went to dinner afterwards and lost my oldest granddaughter's very expensive meds.
Ah well.
