I'm not saying anything new when I say that it's hard to find kid appropriate music that parents actually like. Of course, Asa is still a baby so we listen to most everything we did before he was born. As he gets older I'd like him to be able to sing along with some tunes and not worry about the lyrical content.
Laura Veirs is a Pacific Northwest based musician and mama. Her cd, "Tumble Bee", is one of the best children's albums I've heard. It features old classic tunes and some hidden gems. You can purchase it here or even download it direct right here.
There's a pretty awesome interview with Veirs about her process and kid's music in general right here.
What are your favorite kid albums?
