Music for Kids (That Grownups Like Too!)

Listening to music is great for learning. Hearing words broken into beats helps with recognizing that sentences are made of words which are made up of syllables which are made up of sounds. Music that grownups enjoy listening to too doesn't hurt! Here are a few you might like to try.

New Orleans Playground This Putumayo recording features traditional New Orleans sounds that kids love to dance to. Washboards and accordians create fantastic sounds.

Family Time by Ziggy Marley. Excellent rhythm, sweet lyrics and tunes that stick in your head (in a good way!), make this a great listen. A relaxing and cheerful recording.

Wiggleworms Love You Classic kid songs sung with a folk twist, this recording will have you remembering songs that Grandma sang.
