My 7 year old son loves Muse (and the entire Twilight Soundtrack)...don't get me wrong--they love the Imagination Movers too!!! Jazz Playground sounds phenomenal though!

I don't have any kids, but I have 16 2nd grade students! Does that count?! We listen to Putumayo cd's all the time in our classroom and we do the project with the putumayo passports. They LOVE listening to Putumayo's Caribbean Playground, Women of Africa, African Playground and One World (they usually choose Women of Africa when reading). I love listening to them sing along in another language while they are writing.... even if they don't know what they are saying :)

Lucy's favorite cd right now is the Putumayo kids world playground cd! Aside from that, Ben Harper can make her stop in her tracks!!

It's not a music CD, but we listen to stories by Robert Munsch. As for music we listen to Derek Webb Stockholm Syndrome a lot.

Before I even read what you were giving away, I was getting ready to write: Putumayo World Music. How cool is that???? Wow, thanks for giving away such a great gift. I hope we win. Fingers (and toes) crossed! ♥

My daughters (3rd and 5th graders) and I love listening to Green Day's American Idiot (not necessarily entirely appropriate for their ages, I know, but great music!) We had it playing in the car for weeks. The 5th grader also loves Coldplay, and the 3rd grader loves the Beatles!

My daughter and I listen to the last Michael Jackson CD. She came to love him through me and that is super.

Well our kids are early adopters and they have pandora stations that they control and program from the roku. Really it is easy, and one great thing about pandora is that Putumayo is already a station.

My kids are 3 and 1 and there are 2 CD's we play nonstop, one in the car and one at home. The first is produced by Music For Little People: Ted Jacobs' A Child's Garden of Songs. It features the poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson (A Child's Garden of Verse) set to beautiful Celtic music and we all love it! The second is "Songs for Saplings" by Dana Dirksen. It teaches children simple Bible verses to remember and Dana's pure, clear voice and sweet, simple acoustic guitar, along with the precious harmony of the childrens' voices, is a favorite in our home.

We have Rocknoceros "Dark Side of the Moon Bounce" on constant rotation - it's fun, educational, and hip/rockin' enough my husband and I don't get sick of it.

My kids love Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, They Might Be Giants and Barenaked Ladies. My 7 y.o. son is a huge fan of Josh Groban. They also listen to Laurie Berkner quite a bit. Oh yeah, Dan Zanes too. We love all kinds of music here :)

Oh, and, not trying to get an extra entry, but I forgot to add that we love Putumayo music too and I have been using World Playground with kids (I used to teach) for almost 10 years! My son loves it. Our close ties are with Animal Playground (my son begs for "No More Monkeys Jumpin' on the Bed!") and Celtic Dreamland...the song on there by Susan McKeown has a very special meaning for me and my daughter, and I even emailed the artist personally for a translation from Gaelic, which she graciously provided. I am so grateful to Putumayo for putting beautiful, world-wide folk music out there that we can all learn from! My kids are so musical and I love that they aren't limited to the same 5 songs I knew as a kid...you know, "Twinkle Twinkle", "ABC's", "A Tisket, A Tasket"...

My daughter insists on listening to only "Fascinating Creatures" by Frances England whenever we are in the car. My daughter is 3 years old and it's the perfect mood music for her, fun lyrics and lots of recognizable terms. She laughs out loud when she hears "Blueberry Pancakes" because there's a line that sings about flipping the pancakes in the air with the blue berries in the sky... Love it!

My son and I listen to many of the Putumayo cds. They are fantastic, adults and playground ones. The kid's cd that we listen to the most is Ziggy Marley's Family Time.
