I cant handle most made for kids music at all. I am always looking for great cds for kids....sometimes I make my own. But here is my list of good ones to get.
African lullabies - makes me go to sleep!
A child celebration of folk music - pete seeger, woody guthrie etc
(a great series of cds - blues, show tunes etc)
Peter Himmelman-my bestfriend is a salamander & my fabulous plum
(both available at www.peterhimmelman.com
) BOTH EXCELLENT!!!
Shawn Colvin-holiday songs and lullabies
Daddy-o-Daddy-rare family songs of woody guthrie- excellent!
For the Kids- various artists like barenaked ladies, Tom Waits, dan zanes, +
Woody Guthrie-songs to grow on for mother and child
David Grisman& Jerry Garcia-not for kids only'
Taj Mahal- shake sugaree sings and plays for children - a classic from 70's
