toddlermusicWhen my kids were little there wasn’t much to choose from that was kid- and parent-friendly. Thank goodness that’s all changed! Here are my picks for the best music for moms, dads & tots!  Check out the samples online – I promise you’ll smile, it’s impossible not to!

Get kids singing and dancing and away from the TV or computer – it will make for a lifetime of sweet memories.

Barenaked Ladies Snack Time

I LOVE Barenaked Ladies and so I was thrilled to see they had kids music!  It’s fabulous! Fun lyrics and amazing harmonies!  My favorite song is “Bad Day”.  Such a fabulous way to start a conversation with a child having a tough time.  The entire CD is very clever and entertaining even for this old person!

That Baby CD
This CD and companion DVD has covers of some of the best music produced for adults!  Artists like Fleetwood Mac, Paul Simon, Natalie Merchant, Joni Mitchell, and more. My favorite is “I Will”, about loving forever.

Jazz for Kids: Sing, Clap, Wiggle and Shake
Some classic children’s songs done in jazz versions from some very famous artists like Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong and his Orchestra.  A great way to introduce kids to songs such as, “Yes, There Are No Bananas” as well as a music style that’s different than the usual children’s fare.

A Child’s Celebration of Rock ‘n’ Roll
Rock classics for kids! Bill Haley, The Coasters, Ritchie Valens, and more. Original songs, all kid-friendly, and lots of fun.  “Splish Splash“, “Lollipop”, “Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor on the Bedpost Overnight” and many other sill songs.
