Music We LOVE

Kid music that the grownups in our house can tolerate (and even enjoy):

The Putumayo Kids Playground music series - we especially love the Folk Playground CD, with song lyrics such as "Fill it up...all the way to the bottom" (it's about ice cream cones) by a band called Trout Fishing in America. "Just Kidding," "Roller in the Coaster," "It's All How You Look At It," and "Just Look Up" are a few of our favorites from this album, all by different bands or soloists. Honestly, we love them all!

Another favorite of ours is Putumayo's Dreamland CD, with "beautiful lullabies and soothing songs from Africa, Europe, North and South America and Asia" to relax and lull your little one into "Dreamland."

Another favorite of ours combines our love of Maurice Sendak's tales of children at their best and worst and the vocals of Carole King: Really Rosie. This was originally a Broadway show and the songs were all done by children...I would LOVE to hear that album! But this one done by Carole King is the next best thing and we really enjoy it! You can download this one in MP3 format at amazon.com for $.99 per song.

What do you love listening to with your kids (that doesn't drive you nuts)?
