Christmas is coming and while I am not about to start playing holiday jingles in my house quite yet the subject of good kids music came up with another parent in our wiggleworms class today. Right now there is an abundance of good kindie music out there for new parents looking. They also make great gifts. I am happy to recommend a few CD’s that I think are truly excellent to get you started and also a few blogs who deal directly with the issue at hand. Here are 5 titles in different genres to get you started on quality kids music.
Grenadilla – This is a fantastic vocal journey that amazes me to this day. The whole album is full of happiness and joy. This is the hidden gem of the bunch.
The Boogers- Let’s Go. This is their latest CD and if Punk Rock is your thing you and your kids will be rocking for hours with this one. The best at what they do.
Justin Roberts – Pop Fly. There’s a reason why he was Grammy nominated for Jungle Gym this year. Still Pop Fly is our fav and filled with great, tight pop songs.
The Verve Pipe – A Family Album. This is the best kindie CD ever made. Just great songs and a great band. Great stuff!
Okee Dokee Brothers – Take it Outside. Who knew bluegrass made for such great family music? The Okee Dokee Brothers did and this CD is pure energy!
These are just to get you started. These are also my 5 personal favorites and there are many more out there including our very own Poochamungas. Now in terms of blogs who really follow this stuff you can’t go wrong with Zooglobble. Stefan does a nice job of sorting though the huge amount of music there is out there these days and lets you know what’s good. The other is Out with the Kids by Jeff Bogle. He does a really nice job with music plus gives insights into parenthood from a Dads perspective. I subscribe to both on Facebook. So there you have my kindie music primer and a couple of resource to look into. Talk to everyone soon and have a great day.
