Sure, your kid can sing every note to Lady Gaga’s
“Applause,” but does she know how to skip to my lou? In 15 Songs Every Kid
Should Know (And Will Love!), a variety of singers take on children’s classics, such as “Shoo
Fly,” “Head & Shoulders” and even “Waltzing Matilda.” Each artist brings
his own spin to the song, so there’s a mix of Cajun, Rockabilly, Jazz, African
Drumming, Irish and Cuban rhythms. It’s a fun, spirited CD for your little ones
to learn the classics in an entertaining, modern way ($14, amazon.com).
