We love Sandra Boynton's "Dog Train" CD. It really rocks - especially the title song, "Don't Give Me That Broccoli" & "Cow Planet". Moo, moo, moo...quack, quack! In addition, we like Beatles - especially "Yellow Submarine" - & the B-52s. Funny story: My son likes to sing when he's getting his hair cut. Last time, he was singing some kid fare ("Chim-chiminey", "A You're Adorable", etc.) - and then broke out into "Roam" (from the B-52s) and "Brick House". I've done my job! ;-)

we've listened to a lot over the years.. the kids are swayed by what's popular, but always come back to the beastie boys, zero 7, los lobos and the red hot chili peppers. i try to fit in some classical, johnny cash and world music, too. we have a lot of putumayo cd's and they have been a great source of world music: latin jazz, afro cuban, celtic dreamland, world reggae, and of course the classic world playground! they are all outstanding.

I'm trying to teach my kids to love a variety of music, but jazz is my passion. One we listen to over and over again is The Buena Vista Social Club. The kids really love De Camino a la Vereda. They're ages 2 and 5. (And they even watched the movie with me recently.)

Well, it changes alot, she used to love Hi-5, then Laurie Berkner...now it is soundtracks! The current favorite is Disney's Beauty and the Beast soundtrack. Over and over, lol! But it is great music! I have heard of the Putamayo cds & would love to win Thanks for the chance.

I listen to the Folk for kids...almost more than I do with my 2 1/2 year old son! We have become huge fans of all the individual artists, especially Dan Zanes. Also, I think it's Sing Along with Putamayo, is stuck on repeat. Bling Blang is now said to be "Mama's Jam!"

We have no little ones, but if we did we would listen to the Putumayo Caribbean Playground. Especially "Coconut Woman" Good stuff!

Under a Shady Tree by Laurie Berkner. We are listening to it RIGHT NOW, and we will be (I can guarantee it) for nearly every waking moment of my child's life until she finds something else. We love the Putamayo kids, my favorite is the French Playground, but they all offer something wonderful. Also, we LOVE Jack Johnson & friends' Curious George album- especially after meeting him a few months at LegoLand- what a nice guy!

We started noticing songs that our son would totally jam out to, so we started the 'Kaeden's Faves' playlist. We throw that on and he's dancing and singing like crazy (list includes such faves as Vampire Weekend, Beirut, Sting, Cloud Cult, Feist, etc).

Jack Johnson: Sing-A-Longs & Lullabies For The Film Curious George. "The 3 R's" is a favorite. And, they are liking Mommy's favorite '80's music on Sirius/XM's First Wave (channel 22) station.

We listen to a lot of music in our house and have a ton of favorites...Jack Johnson, Elizabeth Mitchell, 23 Skidoo, Gustafer Yellowgold...to name a few from our kids music collection. The one my son is just starting to get into right now and really groovin to is They Might Be Giants - Here Come the 1,2,3's. My husband and I definitely prefer kids music that we can stand to listen to as well so it gets the whole family moving!

When my son was younger we started with both World Playground CDs. Now we love the Paris and French Cafe CDs. He also listens to the Asian Dreamland CD almost nightly to fall asleep. They are all so wonderful!! Can't have enough!

Putumayo's "Sesame Playground" gets an enormously inordinant amount of airtime, as do Harry Connick Jr.'s "Songs I Heard" and Los Lobs' "Los Lobos Goes Disney". We have a few of Putumayo's Playground discs, and the whole family enjoys them, as we do with the other Putumayo CDs we have. Putumayo never disappoints.

The opportunity to ponder what CD we listen to most felt daunting and brought me to investigate further by looking in the CD cabinet to find, "Putumayo Presents-The Best Of World Music" on top. I bought it in 1994 the year my son was born, we've listened and danced to it incessantly to this day, what great memories. Love You Putumayo
