For the Kids Too!

For the Kids Too!




Kids' compilations come and go, but only a few stand up to the true test: repeated play. Parents will rest easy -- and dance happily -- while their children enjoy For the Kids Too. The follow-up disc to For the Kids spotlights a varied mix of artists that reaches across genre lines for a dynamic collection of new and classic children's songs. Kids' music veterans like folk singer Elizabeth Mitchell ("Catch the Moon") and Chicago troubadour Ralph's World ("At the Bottom of the Sea") make good company for more recent converts like alt rockers They Might Be Giants ("John Lee Superstar"). And then you have those who are kids at heart: Singer-songwriter David Mead explains in the liner notes that he wrote and recorded "I Like to Run, I Like to Jump" because he missed the feeling of "freedom and lightness" from his childhood, and his sweet, Beatlesque offering certainly evokes the sentiment. Another Beatles acolyte, Matthew Sweet, likewise succeeds on his faithful cover of the Fab Four's gorgeous "Goodnight." Jason Mraz takes a stab at the Sesame Street classic "The Rainbow Connection," leading one to wonder if the record label, Nettwerk America, will include a cover of this tune on each of their children's discs (not that we mind). And with proceeds from the disc's sale benefiting the Lili Claire Foundation, For the Kids Too proves it's got a lot to offer to kids of all ages.
