yes! we love laura veirs and gave our nephews this album for christmas last year. another good one is haley bonar's "sing with me" (she's an mpls local). so good.

I actually have a lot of kids' music that I adore! My most acquisition is Rockin' the Fiddle -- SO great! http://jthkids.com/

And Natalie Merchant's Leave Your Sleep is one of the most fantastical glorious pretty things I've ever come across: http://www.nataliemerchant.com/p/leave-your-sleep

I really like Laura Veirs and keep meaning to check out Tumble Bee. Thanks for the reminder!

Elizabeth Mitchell has a great childrens album!

Have you discovered Elizabeth Mitchell? She's fantastic. I'll probably continue to listen to her albums even once my daughter is grown. :)

we listen to elizabeth mitchell's albums. she was in my favorite band, ida, which i listened to in college alot! her kids albums are filled with beautiful folks songs and also modern day covers and originals! we listen to it over here all the time and my 2 1/2 year sings along to it all the time!


p.s.-totally delurking here, but i have enjoyed your blogs for a long time and really enjoy your honesty about motherhood! i'm a stay at home mom of 2 kids (2 1/2 yr old and an 8 month year old) and life is crazy and wonderful and frustrating all at the same time! and i wouldn't trade it for anything!!

on pandora we often like to listen to a "children's folk" station that plays lots of elizabeth mitchell, woody guthrie, keira willey, pete seeger... if nothing else, it's a nice place to pick and choose some new favorites.

Yes to Elizabeth Mitchell. My kids generally listen to what we listen to, but one of my faves that even I enjoy is Renee & Jeremy. They have a few videos on youtube that are really nice. Look for their song, Night Mantra. It's sweet. And for fun, not in the lullaby category, Gustafer Yellowgold. So fun!

this is super! must add it to Alice's collection. thank you for the information :)

thanks so much for the tip!
just got this cd in the mail and we adore it!
it reminds me very much of portland...which is a good feeling.

Barenaked ladies have a great kids cd "Snack time"- we have worn it out, so it's good to have some new leads!
