Rockin’ Gift Guide Part 4: Favorite Kids Music from 2011

We reviewed a bunch of children’s albums this year – here’s what we liked the best and think would be music to the ears of the little ones on your list. (Plus a song/vid we couldn’t get enough of in 2011.)

“A Life of Song” by Ella Jenkins: She's a children's folk music institution. Whether you're familiar or listening to Jenkins for the first time, you will no doubt learn something about our history and be moved to sing and dance along.

“Gustafer Yellowgold's Infinity Sock” by Morgan Taylor (CD/DVD): Ollie loves it. I love it. I sing along when I'm putting on my makeup in the morning. What can I say? This odd little yellow man, his whimsical cast of friends and their silly and catchy songs are the jam.

Lucky Day” by Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band: Children's music is always better when you're enjoying it as a family, and the fact that this folk-pop record is a family affair makes it that much more relatable.

“Beethoven’s Wig” by Richard Perlmutter: We're not huge classical music people, but Luddy never sounded so much fun thanks to Perlmutter's twist on the legendary composer and pianist!

This is good time rock'n'roll plain and simple, channeling T. Rex, The Stones, Skynyrd, The Cramps – garage, surf, country, pop rock. It's all here!
