What's new in children's music?

The library receives new materials each month, including books, DVDs, audio books, and music CDs. Here are a few of the exciting new children's music CDs in our collection:
When my sister was in preschool, Mary Poppins was her favorite movie. She insisted on watching it nearly every day (and it's a LONG movie!), and I still know all of the songs from the soundtrack by heart. This new 2-disc soundtrack collection features not only music from the movie but also lots of bonus material and interviews with the composers the Sherman Brothers.

Rocketship Run, by the Laurie Berkner Band
Laurie Berkner has had a busy few years. She released a best-selling concert DVD- "We Are... the Laurie Berkner Band," she has a regular role on "Jack's Big Music Show" on NOGGIN, and she released her first studio album in six years! This CD features 24 original new songs written by Laurie Berkner and her bandmates. It's sure to get you singing and dancing along!

Before I was a librarian, I was a preschool teacher. We listened to lots of music in the classroom, and some of it was saccharine and obnoxious. But I always enjoyed listening to Ralph's World CDs. In fact, his Happy Lemons CD is one of my very favorites- for kids or otherwise. Because of this, I love to recommend his CDs to parents wanting smart, fun music that they can enjoy with their kids. Try it- you'll like it!
