New Children's Music Albums

I'm always on the search for new children's music - especially albums that can be enjoyed by both children and the adults in their lives! Check out a few of the more recent additions to the Juvenile Music Collection at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library.

More Please! (Caspar Babypants)

Caspar Babypants is one of my personal favorites for early childhood music. Chris Ballew (formerly of the band Presidents of the United States of America) has a great voice that definitely has child and adult appeal. If you're new to Caspar Babypants, you'll also want to check out the album Here I Am!

The Best of the Laurie Berkner Band
Laurie Berkner has been a professional musician and a favorite of kids for awhile now. If you haven't listened to the Laurie Berkner Band, check out this "best of" album! My personal favorites are "Moon Moon Moon" and "Song In My Tummy."
Giggling & Laughing: Silly Songs for Kids (Music for Little People)
A great compilation of silly songs by classic children's musicians: Raffi, Dan Zanes, Taj Mahal, Shelly Duvall, Cheech Marin, Buckwheat Zydeco, and many talented others.

Check out these, too:
A Cow Says Moock (Alastair Moock)
I Love to Hear the Sounds (Kathy Reid-Naiman)

Party Like a Twinkle Star (Charity and the JAM Band)
Rhythm of the Rocks: a multicultural musical journey (Marylee & Nancy)
Sunny Day (Elizabeth Mitchell)
Super Kids Rock! (Yosi & the Superdads)
World of Dreams: Soothing Songs and Lullabies (Charlie Hope)
