Children of the World is an album by saxophonist Stan Getz featuring compositions by Lalo Schifrin to commemorate the International Year of the Child which was recorded in 1978 and originally released on the Columbia label. The album cover art features Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts cartoon of Snoopy on saxophone and Schroeder on piano.



The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow stated "It is not the electronics of Andy LaVerne that is bothersome on this LP but the poppish material (which includes the theme from Evita) and the excessive amount of keyboardists and guitarists. Stan Getz cannot be blamed for trying something new (he even uses an Echoplex sparingly) and his cool-toned tenor is in fine form but the overall results are rather forgettable".
