Gustafer Yellowgold is like the Dr. Suess or Shel Silverstein (The Giving Tree, Where The Sidewalk Ends) of our time.

Its life lessons about friendship, acceptance, nonconformity and ingenuity are charming and wonderful to behold -- in DVD form, or in live performance, as our family has had the pleasure to see multiple times.

Gustafer's "moving book" format is also a great tool for early readers, and infectious enough to bear repeated listens without driving us crazy (like most other modern kids' music does.)

But our favorite thing about it is that it never talks down to kids. Gustafer intuitively plays to a child's inherent humanity and emotional intelligence, and that alone is a beautiful thing.

Also, he jumps on cake.
