I haven't seen this since I was a child in the early Seventies, but I used to watch it every time it was shown on television, usually on holidays that fell on Mondays with no school. The songs were good, the voice of Mother Goose was very memorable, which I can still hear in my head. I loved the theme song for the film's title. I definitely recommend this for your kids.
