Kids Music: Combo CD Gift Sets

Just in time for the holidays

(page 1 of 2)

The gift of music brings CD/book and CD/DVD combo sets sure to delight all year long.


I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, the latest from outstanding Canadian publishers The Secret Mountain, contains a rootsy collection of simple songs for very young children. Secret Mountain’s all-ages combo offerings range from Songs of the Baobab: African Lullabies to the aptly titled Simply Fantastic: An Introduction to Classical Music, with a stop in Arkansas, the setting of both of Trout Fishing in America’s Chicken Joe book/CD sets.

Weirdo Calhoun and the Odd Men Out by Secret Agent 23 Skidoo makes kindie’s hip-hop genius’ point that “sometimes weird is the coolest thing you can be.” Celebrating the “weird awesomeness” in each of us permeates Skidoo’s work, here as the tale of a group of weirdos overcoming the bullies of Squaresville. The wonderful quirk of this gift set is a 6-track CD with hip-hop, bluegrass, bedtime and karaoke versions of the story. It’s a world of lemon-lime sauerkraut and “superfly crazy ideas” with a moral: “Please be yourself.”    

"Gotta Be Me," Secret Agent 23 Skidoo
