BEN RUDNICK & FRIENDS, A FROG NAMED SAM Heading into the summer months, this jaunty CD conjures camp singalongs with classic tunes like "Old Joe Clark" and "Three Little Fishes." Just add s'mores.
RICK SPRINGFIELD, MY PRECIOUS LITTLE ONE The "Jessie's Girl" singer wrote this heartfelt (if kinda corny) collection of original lullabies as a new dad in the mid-'80s. If only any CD could actually get a newborn to sleep through the night.
COME ON, GET HAPPY: THE BEST OF DADDY A GO GO VOLUME 1 Kids' rocker John Boydston (a.k.a. Daddy A Go Go) brings a percussive beat and sly humor to songs like "I Caught My Daddy Watching Cartoons."
ZIGGY MARLEY, FAMILY TIME The reggae scion brings a Jamaican flavor to fun, sunshine-infused duets with Laurie Berkner and Paul Simon, among others.
JEWEL, LULLABY Moms who feel like they were singing along to "You Were Meant for Me" just yesterday—it's been 12 years!—can introduce their tots to the folky singer, whose calming voice is perfect for songs like "Daydream Land."
PLAYHOUSE DISNEY, MUSIC PLAY DATE Yes, it's kind of a cheat to ply your kids with songs from their favorite TV shows. But is loving the "Handy Manny" theme song so wrong?
DAN ZANES AND FRIENDS, THE WELCOME TABLE! The musician tackles a heady subject—interfaith peace—with religious-themed tunes in his signature eclectic style.
EUROPEAN PLAYGROUND If your passport isn't getting much of a workout these days (overseas travel with little ones? ha!), this CD offers a teeny-tiny taste of Europe.
