New Children’s Music Giveaway (5 CDs!)

There’s so much wonderful variety now in children’s music. It used to be that kids’ music was limited to the “classics,” like “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “Wheels on the Bus.” Now there are amazing bands that perform high-quality music of all genres for the whole family to enjoy. If you’d like to discover some great new music for your kids (and you!), read on. At the end, there will be a giveaway for all five CDs to one lucky reader!

Title: Rock and Roll Garden
Artist: Bari Koral Family Rock Band
Website: www.barikoral.com

Bari Koral’s style has been compared to Norah Jones and Jewel, but for a younger crowd! Her songs have been played more than 20,000 times on Sirius/XM Kids, and Bari describes her songs as “rock songs for kids that parents dig.” With tunes like, “Hey Ducky,” “The Backpack Song,” and “Dance All Day,” the whole family will be tapping their toes!



Title: Why Does Gray Matter?
Artist: Roger Day
Website: www.rogerday.com

Subtitled “…and Other Brainy Songs for Kids!” this fun CD introduces kids to the wonders and mysteries of our brains! Of his song, “The Brain Train,” Roger Day says, “I’m confident this is the first—and probably last—children’s song that uses words like ‘corpus callosum’ and ‘deep basal ganglia’ in the lyrics.” This CD encourages kids not only to have fun, but to be smart—an awesome and winning combination!

Title: Tiny Cool
Artist: Princess Katie & Racer Steve
Website: www.princessracer.com

This CD encompasses many musical genres, from Latin to Motown to surfer rock! Songwriter/vocalist Katie O’Sullivan (Princess Katie) says, “To me, the theme of ‘Tiny Cool’ is the empowerment of kids to take charge of their destiny with a ‘you can do it’ spirit.” With songs like “Tube Sox,” “Kids Rock!” and “Japanese Robot,” there’s plenty of “cool music” for everyone!

Title: I’m a Rock Star
Artist: Joanie Leeds and the Nightlights
Website: www.citykidmusic.com

“I’m a Rock Star” covers the rock scene in the title song, hip-hop in “More Cowbell,” the environment in “I Wanna Be Green” and much more! Singing since the age of 2, Joanie Leeds draws ideas for her songs from teaching preschool music classes in New York City. This CD will show you why Time Out NY Kids called her “one of the best at-home sing-along entertainers for kids”!


Title: Green Golly & Her Golden Flute
Artist: Flute Sweet & Tickletoon (Barbara Siesel & Keith Torgan)
Website: www.tugboatmusic.com

This amusing CD introduces children to classical music through the story of Rapunzel. With Keith Torgan narrating and playing the guitar, and Barbara Siesel playing the beautiful flute (along with pianist Jessica Krash), kids will delight in the works of classical composers like Mozart, Mendelssohn and Chopin while being caught up in a delightful tale!

  25. I think the "Why does gray matter" cd sounds fantastic. I'm a big fan of "sneaking" knowledge into kids. If they have a good time, they don't even realize they're learning.
