European Playground

european playgroundI’ve been waiting to review for several months.  Putumayo Kids’ newest release European Playgroundis finally here!  It’s official release is May 19th, but you can get the latest scoop here.  I love Putumayo Kids’ mission to teach children about other lands and cultures through music.  This 15 track EP features cheery and sunny tracks sung by artists in their native tongues in countries all over Europe.  Upbeat and catchy, my son started dancing and bebopping the minute I pushed “play.”  I found I’m already singing along in French and German.  This is an album that parents and children can enjoy together.

Top tracks:

#1. Trampolin’ by Sås & Kopp

#15. Sandy River Belle by Sharon Shannon
