My little man just loves listening to music! If you turn on some tunes, he just bops away. Lately, we have really been enjoying Laurie Berkner’s newest CD of Favorite Classic Kid’s Songs. They title of the CD says it all – classic songs that you will remember from your childhood days. Additionally, the CD includes six bonus tracks if Laurie Berkner originals.  I found myself singing along to most of these classics!


Says Laurie, “I grew up with many of these songs, and I’m sure parents and grandparents will remember a lot of them from their own childhoods. I’m excited about sharing these classics with kids who may not have heard them before and also introducing my versions of songs that might already be family favorites. In the true folk tradition, I’ve added some of my own lyrics and my own spin to many of these traditional songs. I’ve kept a folk or rock feel for most of the numbers, with a little reggae thrown in here and there for fun!”

The disc is currently out – you can pick it up on Amazon. I was also excited to discover that you can stream lots of Laurie’s music free if you have Amazon Prime! Here is the track listing:
