i would like to point your attention to the sidebar for a newly added link — kids music that rocks. i found this blog just the other day while searching for some new music for jones. i LOATHE children’s CDs — the ones with nothing but a choir of singing kids, one well-meaning adult, and bad music. ick. i’m eager to give a few of their recommendations a listen. in the meantime, here are our favorite adult-friendly kid albums.
- slugs, bugs, & lullabies :: andrew peterson & randall goodgame love these guys. they are amazing songwriters, so as you can imagine, the songs are quite entertaining. bryan and i cracked up the first time we listened to it. jones’s favorite is ‘tractor tractor’.
- one :: the beatles not much to be said — famous tunes that are catchy enough for a kid to love. jones’s favorites are ‘yellow submarine’ and ‘day tripper’.
- deliberate kids :: phil joel just found this album, but its already a favorite around here. very upbeat and fun to dance to with a little guy (if he decides he’s in a dancing mood — if he doesn’t want to dance, nobody dances!). jones loves ‘good morning.’
- seeds family worship i have really enjoyed this music! songs taken directly from scripture. a few are weird, but they are great for remembering God’s Word. my favorite is ‘better than life’ — haven’t been able to figure out which ones jones likes yet.
happy listening, mommies! 🙂 (and daddies!)
