The text of this young people's guide to politically correct zoology consists of 10 '60s-style songs ("My mama's a giant panda/ My papa's a panda too/ There used to be a lot of pandas/ But now there are very few...."), sung with wistful charm on an accompanying cassette by writer-composer Weeks. (HarperCollins, $24.95) All ages
