The title notwithstanding, only one of the 11 songs on this collection is from Disney's new The Tigger Movie: "Your Heart Will Lead You Home," the tolerably sweet tune by Loggins (whose "House at Pooh Corner" was a '70s soft-rock hit) and renowned Disney composers Richard and Robert Sherman. The album's highlight is Loggins's version of "Baby Mine," the endearing mother-and-son ditty from the soundtrack of Dumbo. Another gem is Loggins's duet with Olivia Newton-John on "Flying Dreams" by Disney alumnus Don Bluth, from the animated film The Secret of NIMH. There are also songs from Tarzan, Babe: Pig in the City and Beauty and the Beast.
Loggins, who has five children (aged 2 to 18), displays his usual amiable touch with children's music. He's not as expansive as Tigger. But then, who is?
Bottom Line: Kids' album cheery enough for Pooh himself
