Music to my ears- Good kid music

I swear I can remember before I had a baby, being at a friends house as the kid music played on and on and on....I thought I would just kill myself. It can really grate your nerves! That's why for me I've had to do a lot of research before finding the right stuff.

Landon's Mommy and Me class has played this CD and I just love it. Okay, not as much as he does but still, it's cute.


10 Carrot Diamond is great. Our favorite songs are: Octopus and I am a Pizza. We sing them everyday!






This CD by Mary Haskell, is called My Songs. It was a gift from my best friend Natalia for Landon. It is brilliant! She puts your childs name in a bunch of cute and catchy original songs. I cannot believe how much Landon has loved it and when he hears his name he is so happy!!! You can order one at My songs.




Do Your Ears Hang Low is another one of Landon's favorites. I like "Alice the Camel" personally...











If you're not into kid music at ALL, you can now get CD's of current songs sung by kids! We heard these at the indoor play gym we go to...it's pretty good actually. Kind of a meet in the middle approach. This Kidz Bop even has a cover of Riannas "Umbrella!"




Of course if your nostalgic like me you can buy Free To be You and Me! Remember this!? Just bought it. Havent tried it on Landon yet but I will!!!!






I can just hear it now...."There's a land that I see, where the children are free...and I say it ain't far to this land from where we are..."

Thanks for the suggestions! Besides Lori Burkner, the only other kid's CD that gets heavy play at our house is Elizabeth's Mitchell's "You Are My Flower"- it's a great album if you like the folk music sound.

We pretty much just had Raffi...

I like to eat, eat, eat, apples and bananas!!!

I missed a whole decade of normal music because his "cassette tape" was always playing in my car (boy am I dating myself!

Sharon, Lois and Bram. Canadian trio, now I think retired. They were all music teachers--they do all kinds of classic songs with really sophisticated arrangements, compared to most kiddie music.

We could even stand to listen to SL&B in the car on a long, long trip (remember, my kids were all born back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and they did not have tv's in cars!)

Kidz Bop has seriously taken over my house!

Oh I was just going to post something about kids music because my husband who is a They Might Be Giants music fan ordered their music for kids (yes they do music for kids!) CD and it comes with a DVD to watch and it's hilarious. Very entertaining even for adults. It's about learning your numbers. I'll have to find out more info and I'll be doing a post.

Okay, I loved Free to Be You and Me, my mom bought me the book when I was seven and I wore it out!!! My mom was a complete hippy, guitar classes in the living room, PBS on all the time and she taught me how to love music....sounds like you're off to a great start!!!!

This post is well-timed because I have ZERO kids music and really had no clue where to begin to look for some. I basically play whatever I like to listen to when we're in the car, but I know my daughter listens to kids music at school. I am going to investigate these further for sure!

Omigosh, just the other day I was thinking about Free to Be You and Me! I had the LP album when I was nine in the late '70s and listened to it over & over, eating Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies (back when it was only a buck a box). Wow, what a blast from the past. That was good stuff! Thanks for the reminder.
