Songs for the Little Ones


I love listening to music with my kids.  The girls so enjoy dancing around and singing.  Even Lucas is starting to do a little moving to the beat.  We listen to a variety of things around here as we try to expose our little ones to different genres of music.  In that mix is both "kid songs" and "adult songs".  For example, one of Hannah's favorites is "There She Goes" by The La's.  They are also both fond of "Friday I'm in Love" by The Cure.  Just to balance things out, they are also fans of  Veggie Tales Silly Sing-a-longs (love veggie tales but I can only listen to Larry's voice so many times....).

Since we've had kids, we have discovered that there are quite a few very talented musicians who cater to the 5 and under crowd!  I thought I'd highlight a few of my favorites for you here so that maybe you could check them out with your little ones!

Laurie Berkner
Ralph Covert
Justin Roberts
The Innocence Mission-- in particular their lullaby cd entitled "Now the Day is Over." 

Just today I went to youtube and pulled up a few songs for us to watch the videos and dance around.  It's one of our favorite things to do.  And hey, it even burns off a few calories while we're at it!

I'm always trying to get new music for both V and myself to enjoy. I can only listen to the same cd so many times!! =) Right now on repeat is "B is for Bob". A bunch of Bob Marley songs toned down by his son. But I think I'm about at my max point for this one!! In need of new tunes. I always remember how your girls new the words to Amy Grant's songs!! ha ha.
