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.

We have a serious collection of world music in our house.  This makes sense, since G and I both love traveling and learning languages so much.  Our albums range from Turkish to Hindi to Hebrew to Arabic to Latin to French to Scottish and Irish as well as many others.

A good chunk of our spanning-the-globe tune hoard comes from Putumayo World Music.  The company's motto is "guaranteed to make you feel good" and pretty much every album does just that.  You can imagine how excited I was to discover that they have an entire line of children's melodies that are just as good as the others.

Besides having cover art that is as spunky as the music found within, these CDs also include trilingual liner notes - in English, French and Spanish.  Oooh, look at that, a free language lesson while you listen!

I love all the songs on this album, but my favorite is easily Ice Cream.  I can't help but sing along, especially the part that wails, "Ice Creeeeeaaaammm!"


  • Go on an Ice Cream outing - or hold a sundae party at home.  Pick up this ice cream maker to create your own treats (it's so easy!) and grab this book for some fresh flavor ideas.

Here are just a few others that are available (we own 5 of these listed CDs!):


Have you sampled any of the children's songs on these CDs before?  You can usually find a display of them in the middle of Whole Foods and sample some of the sounds while gorging yourself on food samples - it's practically a free meal!  I'd love to hear what you think - leave a comment or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.
