Recorded on Covert's birthday, the disc finds the very talented singer/songwriter focusing more on life's simple pleasures than before. Constructed as a handbook for life for his young daughter, the songs are more optimistic than ever before, but they thankfully avoid "kid cuteness. This is honest pop with depth: a rare thing indeed.
