Dog Train: Kids Songs for Grownups Too

Dog Train is a fantastic CD/book combo written by Sandra Boynton and geared at the preschool set. Why does this make Summer’s Kiss? Because it features Mark Lanegan on a great little song called “Sneakers.” It also has performances by Spin Doctors,
Five for Fighting and Kate Winslet w/ Weird Al Yankovic. Ah, life never fails to provide surprises.

As a new dad, I’ve been collecting every album I can find of kid-appropriate songs that won’t drive me crazy. This one’s near the top of my list.

Of course, my 3 month old daughter and I did spend most of yesterday afternoon listening to Houses of the Holy. So, there’s always that.

    Have you tried the They Might Be Giants albums called No! and Here Come The ABC’s? They’re genius. Infectious tunes all round!

    Also check out http://www.punkrockbaby.com for a few cool CDs. I got a friend of mine the punk album from that site for his kid several years back and the little one couldn’t sleep without it till he was about four years old 🙂

    boynton is great but i prefer her earlier work. if “pajama time” is her “master Of puppets” then “barnyard dance” is boynton’s black album.
