Welcome back to 31 Days of Great Children's Music!  This is the big posting challenge I'm participating in that involves blogging every day in October covering just one topic.  It's also where you'll find some super suggestions for children's songs the whole family can enjoy.

It might take a moment to realize this CD is even intended for kids, although with songs like I've Got to be Clean, by Guster, it's still pretty obvious.  This album is a collection of various popular artists and blends familiar melodies (such as The Rainbow Connection, by Sarah McLachlan, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, by Chantal Kreviazuk and Mahna Mahna, by Cake) with catchy new tunes like The Hoppity Song, by John Ondrasik.

That one will be stuck in your head for weeks, but in a good way, I promise.

I was excited to encounter familiar artists (Sixpence None The Richer and Tom Waits) singing original compositions, but what I really loved was the song La La La La Lemon by one of my favorite groups, Barenaked Ladies.  


  • Create your own version of La La La La Lemon for every letter of the alphabet.  I can easily see using this idea to help a child learn the alphabet, but also in beginning a new traditional family travel game, similar to the Alphabet Game.
