Buy “Various Artists, Marlo Thomas, Stephen Lawrence, Carole Hart, Bruce Hart, Dick Cavett, Carol Channing, Billy De Wolfe, Rosey Grier, Alan Alda – Free to Be… You and Me – Music” Online
I just purchased the CD version of "Free to Be . ..You and Me" as a gift for my nine year old granddaughter. I originally owned the vinyl edition in the seventies when my children were little. To this day they talk about the impact it had on them. ‘Marlo Thomas and Friends" address many issues from being true to you are: "Free to Be. ..You and Me", to rejecting sexual stereotypes ; "William’s Doll". When my daughter was pregnant three years ago, she announced she had located the CD on amazon. com. The teachings of tolerance made an impact of all four of my children. If you want to teach your children tolerance, this is the best collection of of songs available today. It as relevant now as it was when it was first released. Even now I can recall the songs and the messages. It is a temptation to open the CD and listen to it first. But a gift is a gift Check it out!

Free to Be… You and Me Review
I bought this as a stocking stuffer for my toddler grand-niece and first grader grand-nephew. Amazon simultaneously downloaded it into my Prime music account so I got to listen to it for the first time in many years. It was every bit as delightful as I remembered from the late 1970s when my own kids were young. Pretty sure I liked it better back then than they did – especially Carol Channings wonderful contribution about housework. When I handed the package to the kids’s parents I warned them it was subversive (and I do love subversive) but the thank you note I received yesterday indicates that they love subversive too and that Free to Be is playing pretty much non-stop in their kitchen while dinner is being cooked. Wonderful things are wonderful across generations. -Read Reviews-
This was my FAVORITE cassette tape when I was a kid, and I was SO excited to find it for my kids to listen to and enjoy. SO happy to have found this 🙂
