Folkie Lisa Loeb has followed the lead of other adult-music artists (including Kenny Loggins and her co-pilot on this album, Elizabeth Mitchell) in making a disc of children's music that can be enjoyed by all ages. Some of the songs are lyrically pitched exclusively to the toddlers (e.g., the traditional number "Little Red Caboose" and the traditional adaptation of "Big Rock Candy Mountain") while others are a tad more sophisticated (a nicely revamped version of "Oh Susanna" and a lovely take on Bob Dylan's "New Morning"). Then there is the laudable ethnic content: "La Manita" (Spanish traditional), "Donguri/Rolling Acorn" (Japanese traditional), and "Fais Do Do" (French traditional). The original song "Stop and Go" is a "rocky" participation number and tons of fun, while "Catch the Moon" (also original) is dreamily poetic. And there's never been a more tender version of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" than the one found here. The songs are rendered in a folk/country acoustic minimalism that is, in a word, enchanting. And the CD comes encased in a children's board book written by Erin Courtney and illustrated by Bonnie Brooke Mitchell. Catch the Moon is a record that the young ones can enjoy (or go to sleep to) while also being entertaining for the rest of the family, even after many plays.
Kiddie Tunes that parents will like, too
Both my kids love this album. They each have a CD player in their room that plays all night, and this one is a favorite to keep them company. The tunes are soothing and fun for the kids and also palatable to the adult ear. Friends have heard the music playing at our house and have asked what it was - they wanted to get it for their kids. Download and enjoy!
My two year old twins love it!
They started dancing & singing as soon as they heard the first song. It is mellow enough to hear over and over again....
A must have for any parent!!!
Little Red Caboose is like magic. From the time my son was about 4 months old, any time he was upset while riding in the car, we just cued up track #2 and literally within 10 seconds he would calm down. It is unreal. The rest of the songs are good too. And for what it's worth I think Lisa Loeb brought sexy back to women wearing glasses back in the early 90's! She was ahead of the times.
